      1. Oh dear, I hadn’t considered that! Shall I send you a pie photo – or will it confuse folks cuz it’s peach? Oh – and I’m making a hazelnut pumpkin cheesecake as well – baked, not raw :-).

        1. I can steal it directly from your site, I think people get the gist. If you post the apple pie in the future, we can update the link. Whadaya think?

  1. And my invite is where??? Hehe…tell us again how many you are cooking for (and please be to god you have many helpers) because this sounds like a true feast Somer! A delicious one….xx

    1. I was wondering why you didn’t show up 😉 you know there’s an open invite to you at my home anytime. And don’t you worry, everyone contributed and because of that, it was utterly fantastic. Everyone adored the mini cashew loaves and several people wanted the recipe! I sent them over 🙂

    1. Oh- and I found a recipe for savory sweet potatoes with vegan italian sausage. Depending on the test run today we may have a savory yam dish too!

  2. so, what if I don’t have pine nuts? and what if I’m not using a butternut and making my own crazy concoction? I’m feeling a little pressure here to stick with the menu…and don’t forget my awesome cranberry walnut sourdough. two loaves just came out of the oven and even if you don’t want to eat them, they’re sure pretty.

    1. In the end only a few photos were taken, there was too much beautiful food waiting to be eaten, we couldn’t let it go cold for the sake of blogging 😉

  3. Whoa, girl. You just did all of my recipe shopping for me! Righteous post indeed. Did you see the Veggieducken video on GreensForGood? (It may very well be our centerpiece on this, our first meatless Thanksgiving.)

    Have a very Happy Thanksgiving, Somer. You inspire me. So thankful to have met you here. Really. 🙂

    PS — I’m so giddy. My case of soy curls came today…just in time for T-Day!

    1. I need to check out the Veggieducken! I was totally going to do a stuffed seitan, but made Shira’s Cashew Loaf a few weeks ago and decided I didn’t need seitan! It is SOOO good!

      I’ve been planning this for a while, and I love that I really feel like I’ll be missing nothing. I totally brined a turkey last year *shudder* so glad I’m in a different place! I love that your soy curls arrived girl! I made soy curl marsala last night over brown rice. Oh my! Happy Thanksgiving to you too my dear! xoxox!

                  1. Feel better, girl. Gotta kick that cold before Thurs. I’ve had a sick baby at home for two days. Nasty, nasty persistent high fever with croup. She’s sleeping now. I haven’t yet…Lordy, that hot little baby in a cool bath in the middle of the night. TWICE. I’m wiped.

                    1. poor thing! Are you into essential oils? I use peppermint oil down their little backs and on their feet to cool a fever. Reduces it by a degree or two within minutes. I still have a compromised immune system because of my auto-immune disease and catch everything. I do however recover more quickly than I used to. I take 10,000 mg vitamin C, 6 echinacea capsules, and a bit oil colloidal silver (divided throughout the day) I used to be sick for 2 weeks, now when I get sick it’s 3 or 4 days.

    2. Haha! Just watched the Veggieducken video, for some reason I had an idea that it was soy curls stuffed inside of tofurky stuffed inside of seitan! That thing is awesome. Just shared the link on facebook! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. It was so wonderful Barb! Hey, for some reason, I’ve subscribed to your new site now twice and I’m still not getting updates, unless… you haven’t been posting? I’ve got some sleuthing to do 😉

    1. Haha! It’s going to be an incredible day, but I’m not preparing it all, I have a little help from my blogging buddies who are coming on the day! Thanks Thom!

  4. Looks incredible – I love that you are giving Thanks with blogging buddies. It is such a cool community to be a part of!

    1. I feel super blessed to be surrounded by those incredible women and their families! It’s a great way to spend Thanksgiving, especially since none of us have local family around. xx

  5. Wow everything look delicious. I find your recipes always inspiring. I missed your blog: my laptop have been not working for two weeks and following all my bloggers friends only with the iPad was a little bit difficult. Anyway now I’m going to read the posts I missed 🙂
    Have a nice day!!!!

    1. Haha! Terri! I messed up too, I didn’t use a recipe at all the first round. I had so many other things to do that pumpkin pie was the only place I took shortcuts. I bought the store bought vegan crusts and that Libby pumpkin pie mix in a can that comes pre-sweetened and spiced. (Gross I know) The first round I just blended the pie mix with some soft tofu, it didn’t set! Doh!

      Round 2: 1 Can Libby Ready to go pumpkin pie mix, 1/4 block silken tofu, 2 T. cornstarch and 2 T. enerG egg replacer. I blended this up in my blendtec until completely smooth. Then poured it into the prepared pie crusts and baked for the time it said on the Libby label. It tasted just like regular pumpkin pie. I know its terrible, but that’s the honest truth! It tasted great, but next year I’ll do my own mix with homemade crust for an even tastier recipe.

      Sorry I couldn’t give you a better recipe!

    1. Oh my goodness. Gabby, it was the star of the dessert table. Annie made it and brought it and topped it with coconut cream. INCREDIBLE! xx

    1. I’m going to make a section for the blog and put “Vegan Holidays” and put this post there. It was such a good spread, I think it’s worthy of any Holiday!

  6. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in South Africa, though I definitely have some great ideas to incorporate into the Christmas menu. Good job!!
