What I Brought to Thanksgiving Dinner (Plant-based Thanksgiving Meals)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

At my sister’s house in Jacksonville now, soaking up the cool fresh air and calmness that comes with leaving Miami for a few days. Just had Thanksgiving Dinner which included my Mushroom Loaf and Roasted Sweet Potato Chunks. It was my first time making this recipe and it was really delicious.

  • 2 tbs of cumin powder
  • 1/2 cup of ground cashews
  • 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • A bit of sriracha sauce optional

Sauce: This is optional as I did not have BBQ sauce. I basically mixed tomato paste, agave, paprika, and steak sauce.

Directions

  1. Heat saucepan on medium high, add olive oil then chopped onion, celery, mushrooms, Bell peppers, and garlic
  2. Add spices Chili, oregano, thyme, cumin, salt and pepper, sriracha sauce and cook until mushrooms have shrunk
