A New Kind of Thanksgiving 2016
Turkey, stuffing, maybe some cranberries—it may be the same old Thanksgiving for some people. Sure, it’s tasty, but it’s the usual meat- and fat-based dishes that leave you tired and none the healthier afterwards.
A lot of people are seeking healthier, vegan recipes for their Thanksgiving 2016 celebrations, but aren’t aware of any satisfying meal options or how to prepare them. But the truth is, there are some delicious vegan Thanksgiving recipes out there, and some are even available as plant-based meal kits that anyone can use. Purple Carrot is a plant-based meal delivery service that is providing healthy and tantalizing vegan Thanksgiving meal kits—tested by a team of chefs—to customers nation-wide.
Vegan Thanksgiving Tips from Purple Carrot
Thanksgiving is a time of celebration; it’s a once-a-year event where we get family and friends together for a festive meal to commemorate all the things we should be grateful for. As enjoyable as Thanksgiving dinner is, it can be both a cumbersome and repetitive event to prepare for, especially with the same old dishes being served every year.
Whether you’re a strict vegan or are just looking for something new at your 2016 Thanksgiving dinner, there are a lot of plant-based options you should know about. These bring creative and fun experiences to the annual event, while allowing everyone to share in the healthy feast.
Consider the following ideas for your Thanksgiving meal; if any of them sound good to you, be sure to check out Purple Carrot and their services this season!
#1. Rather than a typical stuffed turkey that takes hours prepare and roast, you can concoct an equally enjoyable butternut squash with whole wheat, wild rice, and onion stuffing.
#2. Stuffing is a staple of any Thanksgiving feast. But instead of the usual calorie-heavy stuffing of bread, onions and mushrooms, why not try a stuffing made from pumpkin, cranberries, chestnuts and vegan sausage? Here you’re combining many flavors into a single dish; it’s bound to taste amazing.
#3. For your potatoes, you must have gravy. But your typical gravy can be pretty fat-laden with lots of salt. An easy mushroom gravy is just as delicious and offers a new taste sensation to accompany your mashed potatoes.
#4. For a healthy, vegan side dish, consider roasted Brussels sprouts with balsamic glaze, candied yams, or baked sweet potatoes and apples.
#5. Thanksgiving desserts have become more interesting these days. Wheat-free apple-walnut cobbler, pumpkin bread pudding, and squash pie are delectable after-dinner dishes that still retain the Thanksgiving tradition of harvest fruit-based sweet tastes.
