Thanksgiving might be all about tradition, but there is still room for a few culinary surprises on every table.
Thanksgiving is an amazing time to get together with friends and family and celebrate everything we have to be grateful for.
While we are all for traction, this year, we wanted to switch things up, so we created a cheat sheet of easy swaps to help you create a feast all your own.
We know you probably can't live without turkey (or leftover tofurkey sandwiches), but you might enjoy adding some sides that are as unique and diverse as the county we call home.
Whatever you do, make this Thanksgiving your opportunity to enjoy the process and savor the unique pleasure of feeding the ones you love.
Instead of Cranberry Sauce
Instead of Sweet Potato Souffle
Instead of a Pull-Apart Bread or a Cheese Plate
Instead of Mashed Potatoes
Instead of Pumpkin Pie (oh yeah, we're going there)
Pumpkin pie might be good, but True Food Kitchen's squash pie is better and, in our humble opinion, vegan pumpkin cheesecake brownies are the absolute best. For something totally different, we're going with a subtley sweet pistachio fig cake.
