This festive cocktail is PERFECT as a welcome drink not only for Thanksgiving but for fall dinner parties!
These vegan fried green tomatoes are the perfect combination of crispy and salty and slightly addicting!! Don’t forget to make the dip as well, that’s the secret sauce!
This kale caesar salad was one of the very first meals Justin ever made for Jillian and it’s still one of her favourites to date. However, she did slightly tweak it … and between you and me … it gives his recipe a run for its money. ?
Main CourseBeet Rolls are a staple in Jillian’s Ukranian family but generally, they are packed with butter and cream … well, this version is not only a quicker version of the originals but it’s also completely vegan!
Traditional Wellington is generally pretty rich and it’s normally made with beef, but considering Jillian eats mainly plant-based in their household, Tori and Jill wanted to create a vegan (and healthier!) option which is why they decided to re-create this savoury dish using mushrooms instead of meat and Becel Vegan in replace of butter to help cut down on those saturated fats!
Pssstttt … this recipe is SO INDULGENT but the best part is, you can use packaged gnocchi to cut down on time, which is such a handy trick and the best part? It tastes JUST as good!!
What would Thanksgiving dinner be without a little sweet treat?? These Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake jars are the absolute CUTEST deserts to serve your guests and they are insanely easy to make … but they don’t have to know that! ?
There you have it!! Make sure to let us know in the comments if you end up making ANY of these dishes for your Thanksgiving dinner! We would love to hear how much your guests loved them!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!
