My First Plant-Based Thanksgiving

With so many people asking what I’ll be eating for Thanksgiving this year, I thought I would share the full menu of what I’m bringing to the table.  I’ve been reviewing dozens of whole food plant-based recipes, focused on not including “vegan junk food” on the menu. Did I mention that I haven’t tried any of these so my friends and I will all be guinea pigs? 😊

Here is my menu with links to the recipes They are all vegan, dairy-free, oil-free and low-salt:

Appetizer:  Deviled Tomatoes
