Green Bean CasseroleBy Kylee Melo, RDThis is a classic recipe that we often see at holiday dinners. But what about a version for vegans? I, for one, have always loved green bean casserole and I finally came to the point where I didn’t want to be left out during the holidays. This recipe is very simple to make and the best part is that nothing comes from a can—it’s all fresh! I did try this recipe with canned green beans, but it just didn’t have that crispy texture to it. If you’re wanting to used canned beans, just use 2 cans instead of the 1 lb. of fresh. But try it with fresh beans, it is SO much better. Either way, don’t forget to enjoy your holiday season.Vegan Holiday Turkey RoastBy Kylee Melo, RDThere are 7.3 million vegetarians who will be celebrating Thanksgiving this year. Here is a special recipe to enjoy this holiday season. This is SO much better than the ones you can buy in stores, plus everyone will be impressed at your amazing cooking skills once they taste it. Even non-vegans and vegetarians will love it. So go ahead, impress those taste buds, and make your own vegan turkey this holiday. You can serve this roast alongside our Holiday Stuffing and Gravy! Leftovers? It makes the perfect sandwich meat when you slice it thin. Homemade is always best made. Blessings!Pumpkin BreadBy Desiree KröperFall is just a good excuse to eat pumpkin bread. Besides the fact that pumpkin is really good for you, and pumpkin bread is a favorite for Thanksgiving dinner! Pancake PuffsBy Desiree KröperI wanted something special for my Mum's birthday breakfast, not the usual. After some internet searching this idea came up. With some healthy touches a breakfast was made—fit for a queen! Vegan SouffléBy Desiree KröperI enjoy easy, tasty recipes, but sometimes it's fun to make something extra special. Hence, when I learned you can make "egg white" foam using garbanzo juice, I was anxious to see if a vegan soufflé was possible. And voilà, it worked and has become one of my favorite recipes!Oil-Free GranolaBy Life and Health NetworkAlthough granola has a healthy image, many granolas are actually full of sugar and oil. This granola is perfect for individuals on low-fat diets, it contains no added fats and still tastes great (thanks to the coconut and almond butter). You can also substitute or add in you favorite nuts or dried fruits to suit your taste.Dark Chocolate BrowniesBy Desiree KröperDark chocolate brownies just got healthier with this rich and creamy version.Orange Cranberry SconesBy Kylee Melo, RDThis recipe was inspired by the orange cranberry scones they offer at Starbucks. They were one of my mom's favorite desserts there, until she found the recipe and was able to make them at home. She passed the recipe along to me and I was able to make it plant-based to enjoy. These scones are a great sweet treat because the whole batch only contains 7 teaspoons of sugar. That's almost less than ½ a teaspoon per scone, and that's a whole lot less than your average dessert. The glaze adds a little bit more sugar, but it is always optional.Vegan Biscuits (KFC Style)By Grace JauwenaPrior to switching to a plant-based diet, I grew up eating KFC. My favorite were the biscuits. I felt that I wanted to create a vegan version of this childhood favorite. There’s something about a warm, flaky, buttery biscuit that is so satisfying, especially during the holidays. Even if you’ve never had KFC biscuits, these are the perfect biscuits to have if you are looking to make biscuits and gravy. These are also great for breakfast sandwiches.
