Our First Vegan Thanksgiving!!!

Our First Vegan Thanksgiving!!!

Our first vegan thanksgiving!!! I had never really cooked for thanksgiving. I mean, I’ve cooked but, no more like just making my famous dessert; flan. My family goes nuts over it. Since going vegan, I was not making that again…. Sooooo I had to really plan out what I was going to make  in order for my family and I to have options as well as everyone.  A few days before, I planned what we were going to eat. And please keep in mind this was my first time making every single recipe. (call it brave or crazy LOL)

My Dinner options were:

- Cornbread

-Cornbread /cranberry stuffing

-Spicy pimento cheese ball

-Apple pie

-Sweet potato casserole with marshmallows



Corn Bread:


I had a lot of fun making this corn bread, I used aquafaba for the first time and when mixed with sugar and whisked.. it looked just like egg whites.


Corn Bread/Cranberry stuffing:















Spicy Pimento Cheese Ball:

So this recipe didn’t go as planned. I should have let this sit in the fridge for an extra day. So.. this turned out to be spicy pimento cheese spread. Not a ball LOL





Apple Pie:


This apple pie was delicious but, the only thing I would change is that I would use less apples. Maybe just 6 total not 10.  




Sweet Potato Casserole:

I loved how this recipe didn’t include butter but, instead it included almond butter.
