Happy pie season! I think I’ve had this rant before.... Yep. Pie day, formerly known as dead obese bird day, is fast approaching. Which means it is also “what do you eat on Thanksgiving?” argumentative accusation season. Because, everybody knows that if you abstain from turkey you will just RUIN Thanksgiving for everyone.
I don’t know…. Even when I ate meat, as a child, I never really cared for turkey. The stringy, greasy, bits of turkey on my plate slid around and got pushed out of the way while I gorged on mashed potatoes and pie. And more pie. And then the cats got to eat leftover turkey for a week or so while my brother and I fought over the cold stuffing leftovers.
But to answer your ridiculous question, for your Thanksgiving viewing pleasure I have compiled a list of cooking videos for everything you need to create your very own vegan Thanksgiving. Sans dead bird. Except, there is no gravy. I will have to do a follow-up post on gravy. Because I LOVE that stuff.
For your centerpiece, instead of a turkey, make what I refer to as a ROAST BEAST! Umm. Otherwise known as a seitan roast:
You gotta have Cranberry Sauce:
And a neato twist on sweet potatoes:
The obligatory Brussel Sprouts:
AND PUMPKIN PIE. OMG you guys. Pie!:
These videos were all produced by my brother, David Jewell. Some of the recipes can be found in my cookbook. Funny thing; when you grow up together, you memorize the same recipes. So, we cook a lot of the same stuff. Our opinions on technique sometimes differ, but we both just LOVE food, and insist on making it ourselves.
If you like these videos, please please please go to David's Indie Go Go page and give your support. No more videos can be made until David replaces the videomaking equipment that some drug-addled loser recently stole from his house. I NEED more videos. Like, maybe one about gravy. PLEASE SUPPORT MY NEED FOR GRAVY.
