You’re Invited To The Ultimate Plant-Based Holiday

Okay, so let’s be clear I am not vegan  I do not follow a 100-percent plant-based diet. I guess if you’d have to name it I’d be labeled pescatarian because I eat seafood and will eat eggs and still love cheese!

However, I have been eating less seafood and opting for more meatless entrees lately. So, it hit me randomly…why not make a meatless holiday meal and try to convert my family? Thus, the night before Thanksgiving I made a Publix run and probably purchased the most expensive lot of groceries of all time. Because you see I wanted to use organic foods, and raw ingredients. I was inspired thinking with my heart, not my brain. But, in the end, the pay off was worth it.

After an afternoon of whippin’ work in the kitchen, I made a complete plant-based spread that is still receiving high remarks. Their minds were blown, how could a meal without meat deliver such deliciousness and satisfy all their holiday food cravings?

On the menu, for the evening a Curry Baja Butternut Squat Soup to start. The star of the meal, a plant-based Celebration Roast picked up in the produce section, surrounded by a creamy vegan green bean casserole, mac n cheez “au gratin” and of course dessert a delicious sweet potato pie with coconut whipped cream to top it all off.

So, without further adieu here are my recipes to try your own plant-based holiday.
