Vegan Thanksgiving Part 2

I've cooked a vegan Thanksgiving feast for the past few years, and it was simply fantastic.  Since I'm closer to New York this year, I'll be able to share Thanksgiving with my family for the first time in a long time, and I plan on blowing their minds with the magnificence of vegan holiday cooking.  They've agreed to go vegan for the day, so I'm going all out.  Last year I posted pictures here of the dishes that comprised our Thanksgiving spread. Since this time I've had the foresight to post about this in advance of the holiday, I'm including the recipes I'll be using, in case anyone else out there is looking for great ideas. I'm not down with the idea of tofurkey or a seitan roast, as frankly, each grosses me out.  Instead, I use my favorite vegetable and dessert recipes that put a new spin on traditional Thanksgiving dishes.

This Year's Menu:

A friend's recipe for amazing green beans (top secret!)

Apple-Almond Caramel Bake from Supermarket Vegan 

I have served these dishes to non-vegan company for the past few Thanksgivings, and this menu does not disappoint.  Now that you have the menu and recipes, it will be that much easier to celebrate a healthy and cruelty-free, yet delicious Thanksgiving.
