Vegan Recipes For Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a big festival in United States. Thanksgiving is all about good food, family and friends. From couple of centuries, Thanksgiving is celebrated in United States . Traditionally, Americans eat "Roast Turkey" for Thanksgiving...

Times are changing, and thousands of Americans relish delicious and colorful vegan fare (plant-based food) on Thanksgiving. Many vegans will enjoy "Tofurky", made with tofu and seitan( made from wheat) during Thanksgiving dinner . This year you can get amazing vegan food in Whole Foods Market . Mustard glazed cauliflower, lentil-mushroom stuffing , sauerkraut-roasted rainbow carrots,  and chocolate toffee miniature cake are some of the mouth-watering vegan items in Whole Foods Market during Thanksgiving week.

I'm planning to make yummy food for my family . I will make masala dosa( rice and lentil crepe ), coconut chutney , potato palya (spicy potato salad ), channa masala ( garbanzo beans infused with spicy Indian masala), jeera rice (cumin-flavored rice) , and carrot halwa(grated carrot cooked in homemade almond milk and vegan sugar)

Here are some websites, and youtube videos to help Vegans and Non-vegans make delicious vegan Thanksgiving dinner dishes for their loved ones!
