How Do You Cook A Traditional Thanksgiving Meal For A Vegan?
If you have a vegan in your family, you probably want to include them in all the traditional Thanksgiving festivities. However, most Thanksgiving dishes use dairy products, meat or eggs–three things eschewed by vegans. Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to turn your traditional Thanksgiving meal into a vegan menu. You only need to make a few ingredient substitutions and some slight modifications to your regular recipes. Use a butter substitute. Vegan butter substitutes can be found in health food stores and major grocery stores. Surprisingly, these margarines often taste just like real butter and can replace butter in all your recipes. Substitute non-dairy milk. Rice or soy milk is readily available in most supermarkets. It can be used as a substitute in recipes for biscuits, dinner rolls, baked corn, mashed potatoes and casseroles. Serve a non-meat “turkey.” Although you’ll probably want to dish up a regular turkey for meat-eating guests, consider serving a turkey substitute to vegans
