Carving the Seitan "Turkey"

See links to lots of holiday recipes here.

Vegan Pumpkin Pie (no tofu in it!), from my book The Almost No-Fat Holiday Cookbook, p. 165.)

 Soy and Seitan "Turkey" (recipe for the prototype to this baked version in my book  Soyfoods Cooking for a Positive Menopause, p. 132-133.)

Leftover stuffing made into patties and served with cranberry sauce and gravy. (My stuffing recipe [p. 103], cranberry sauce recipe [ p. 106], and Mushroom Gravy [p. 101] recipes are in my book The Almost No-Fat Holiday Cookbook; My Rich Brown Yeast Gravy recipe (a template for many variations) recipe is in my books Soyfoods Cooking for a Positive Menopause, 20 Minutes to Dinner, The Almost No-fat Cookbook, and  World Vegan Feast.

And these vegan Pumpkin-Pecan Cupcakes with Lemon "Buttercream" would make a good Thanksgiving weekend treat!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for all the wonderful recipes, Bryanna! The Soy and Seitan "Turkey" is resting between kneads now. I am so looking forward to it! This Thanksgiving, I'm giving thanks for all the wonderful vegan chefs like you who share their expertise with the rest of us.

Hi Bryanna!
I made your pumpkin pie for the first time for Thanksgiving and it was so creamy and so yummy! My dad and I are suckers for pumpkin pie and we were not disappointed! It tasted just like the ones I had in my non vegan days. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
