Thanksgiving post! I spent almost 8 hours cooking on Wednesday. It was crazy. Trying a lot of new dishes, trying out a few new tweaks with some I know and love. In total I made 3 savory dishes plus gravy, and 2 sweet. Lots of work but at least I had lots to eat!
Top picture is my gluten free vegan green bean casserole. I ended up using about 3 different recipes to make it. I followed this recipe to make béchamel but I should have used almond milk instead of soy. Soy gave it a weird flavor, It was off putting a bit.
The recipe I had set aside for the onions I decided against and went with brown rice flour after soaking the onions in soy milk and lemon juice for a bit. They turned out great!
The next picture is my gluten free Mushroom Walnut Stuffing, always a crowd pleaser. This year I actually had some left over to take home, which I was so excited about. Last year I didn’t since mine was the only stuffing at the table.
Next is Sweet Potato Mac and 'Cheese', gluten free and vegan. When we were making it the night before we thought we might have seasoned and spiced it to much. But after it was cooked and brought to the table it was bland! I was so disappointed! On top is gf bread crumbs and paprika.
And last was my gluten free and vegan mini apple pie, using my favorite crust with almond flour, oats, maple syrup, and coconut oil. I also used a little as a crumble on top. Inside is just some apples that were cooked with orange juice and zest, a little maple syrup and cinnamon. Added a bit of soy whip on top, which turned out great. Specially when warm.
Couple of good recipes that worked out great, a couple of not so great. But there is always next year!
