Okay, a bit late to the party here, but how about we just pretend I am early for American Thanksgiving, mmkay?

So, roomies and I decided to make ourselves a glorious thanksgiving feast. On the menu:

Butternut Squash Bisque

Lentil Loaf/Nutroast: Notes were taken in the making of this, it was lentil, mushroom and walnut based I think… 

Gravy from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan by Dreena Burton

Cranberry Sauce: Cranberries plus water and a bit of agave cooked on the stove until cranberries were mushy

Garlic Mashed Potatoes: Roasted a head of garlic in the oven and added it to cooked potatoes with some almond milk before mashing it all up.

Brussels Sprouts: Cleaned and sliced in half and then baked in the oven with oil, salt and pepper

Pumpkin Cheesecake (Made crustless, largely followed the recipe except for adding an extra tablespoon or so of cornstarch, not sure if it made much of a difference, but once cooled, you could cut out a slice – see picture)

So here is my plate (actually I am kind of lying, this was a plate of leftovers, hence the lack of Brussels sprouts-they were decimated the first go around!)

And dessert!

It was most delicious, and quite lovely indeed to have a big group meal making effort and sit down (we normally do cooking and eating separately).

Today is Remembrance Day in Canada, so here is my homage.
