Did you ever wonder what a vegetarian eats on Thanksgiving? I get this question a lot, and thought I’d share with anyone that cares. Here’s a picture of my plate on Thursday.
First of all, let me defend that gigantic mound of butter on the mashed potatoes. The potatoes were really dry. Really. No, really. Anyway, as you can see, we eat quite a bit of food, and it probably looks quite a bit like everyone else’s plate. Starting at the top, we had Broccoli-Cheese casserole, Waldorf Salad, corn, mashed potatoes, rolls, and cranberry sauce. We also had sweet potatoes, and sometimes have stuffing; but I don’t like either one of those. Now, that thing in the middle? It’s Quorn Turky Roast. I’m sure you are thinking “YUCK! A fake turkey roll? You can’t be serious!” But, it’s actually, really quite good; it tastes like turkey, and has the texture of turkey. Which is really weird when you first try it. My mother-in-law made this for us last year, and this was the first time I had cooked it. There are two ways that you can cook it; I just put it in the oven, and unfortunately it was a little dry. But last year’s was juicy. Again, really weird when you first try it, but it’s a great alternative. We finished with pumpkin pie, of course.
So, there you have it. By the way, please ignore the ugly, avocado green countertop that is held together with packing tape. Isn’t that lovely? That project is next on our list!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
