Thanksgiving 2012

Here's the menu of what we had for Thanksgiving! I will add links to new recipes as I have time to post about them. Special thanks to (and for) Zippy and her photography skills.


hors d’oeuvres
caraway-havarti-beercheese spread (new!)
crackers and apple slices
stuffed shrooms

first course
roasted beet and apple soup with coconut creme fraiche (new!)

main course
braised tempeh
mushroom gravy (see notes)
cranberry sauce (see notes)
roasted brussels sprouts with fennel (see notes)
mashed cauliflower by jamie (new!)

pumpkin pie with coconut whipped cream
carrot cake by jamie

A few notes about the recycled recipes: for the gravy, I used a combo of cornstarch and soymilk instead of flour to make it less gluteny for a guest. In the cranberry sauce, I put not only ginger, cloves, cinnamon, and vanilla, but also a generous pinch of black pepper for extra zing. Since we were already having stuffed mushrooms and mushroom gravy, I omitted the mushrooms from the roasted brussels sprouts recipe and slightly reduced the dressing-y ingredients accordingly.
