Vegan Thanksgiving

It took me seven hours to get to New York amid the wild weather we were having in the Northeast Wednesday afternoon, but the cats and I made it for Vegan Thanksgiving.  For the menu, we kept some staples, like roasted garlic broccoli, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes, and also tried the recipes below.  At the last minute I decided to whip up some pumpkin applesauce, just because.  Everything was great-- the stuffing was my favorite.
