If you know anything about us know it is that we love a holiday...strike that...we love any excuse to celebrate life! Although we have mixed feelings about the actual backstory of Thanksgiving we love that it is a day to share love, warmth, gratitude and friendship...oh and food...always food.
And on this special holiday it is so important that everyone feels welcome and loved so it only makes sense to make sure everyones bellies are filled with delicious food we are lucky enough to have.
We have narrowed down our favorite recipes for you to create the perfect plant based and gluten free menu. (In fact, we are using these actual recipes for our own TG dinner!) Not only are these recipes great for everyone, they are filling, beyond delicious and fun to make.

Smashed Potatoes with Garlic Aioli from Oh She Glows- (click for recipe)
Roasted Brussel Sprouts- The easiest dish out there.
Lentil Shepards Pie- Borrowed from The Minimalist Baker (click for recipe)
And what's a TG dinner without pie?! We make this one from Vegetarian Times every year and its the best pie we have ever had!
**buy your crust at the local store. look for a GF or vegan one. One one will know the difference. they are flaky and buttery just like one grandma made**

No matter where you are, what you are doing, eating or drinking, the only real thing that is important on TG is the love and gratitude you feel for your friends and family. Nothing matters except for the people (and furry ones too!) who love us for who we are. Be grateful for what you have and excited and hard working for what you want instead of jealous. We are all so lucky to be alive and be able to give and receive love freely.
Love, real love is the most filling and delicious thing on our plates.
