 Thanksgiving is coming up. To the be honest I don't have a big connection with this holiday and the meaning behind it. 

But I do love Thanksgiving food! 
I know Thanksgiving can be a difficult holiday for vegetarians and vegans.
 So I wanted to share some ideas that you could make this Thursday great! 

I want to share how I make Stuffing, which is my favorite dish on Thanksgiving. I cover it in gravy and just love it!

I also wanted to give an idea for a Side Roasted Veggie dish and a Baked Apple Dessert

The photos are from last years stuffing post. 
This year I am sharing the recipe plus a gravy recipe.
Stuffing Recipe 
ingredients : 
3 Big round rustic loaf of Sourdough Bread 
Mushrooms crimini 
 4 Apples peeled 
Walnuts/Pecans .1 bag
 2 large Onions
1 Bell Pepper 
Salt and Pepper
Olive Oil

Chop the Bread in small bite size pieces. and place in oven on low heat until the bread dries out.(you can do this the night before)
Chop up all your ingredients into small bite size pieces.
Saute Onions with the garlic and a pinch of salt, until they start to sweat then add celery. and a tiny bit of water.then cover. 
Add chopped up Seitan and a splash of shoyu in with the onion mix after the onions are cooked and provide a good about of liquid.
When the Seitan has halfway cooked (about 4 minutes) add herbs to your liking. 
Mix roasted nuts with chopped apples 
Then mix all your ingredients together, apples, nuts and bread in with the sauce mixture, and let simmer until bread has rehydrated a bit. (do not let the bread cook too much) 
Lay out the mixture out into a baking dish, cover and then put into the oven for a half of an hour (or until done) on medium heat (350 .F-160.C)


Gravy Recipe 
Onions, 2 large ones
 Mushrooms, handful
Olive Oil, 
Flour 1/2 of a cup
Caramelize onions with plenty of olive oil and a good size pinch of salt for a 20 minutes until soft and sweet.  Then add sliced mushrooms and sauté until the mushrooms are cooked. Add flour little by little and whisk so that no lumps form. After the flour has mixed in well with the onions and mushrooms, add 4 cups of water/vegetable stock little by little while constantly whisking. Let cook on low heat for 15 to 20 minutes.

For a side dish. I made Roasted Potatos, with Brussel Sprouts, Onions, and Carrots.
with Olive Oil, Salt, Black Pepper. I drizzled on some Balsamic Vinegar and some Cilantro right after it comes out of the oven. 

For Dessert: 
Baked Apples with a Raisin, Nut, Maple Syrup Mixture. Served with homeade Coconut Ice Cream 
The Mixture had Pecans, Rasins, Cashews, Rolled Oats, Tahini, Maple Syrup, Cinnamon, and Salt.

I hope this gives you some ideas for what you can make for yourself this holiday, or anytime you want some feastive food.
