    That is so nice of them to be accommodating like that. His family makes inviting a vegan over look easy.

    That’s amazing and it all looks so delicious!

    Awww that’s amazing!! So nice of Matt’s mom to keep the stuffing & mashed potatoes vegan, too. My mom does that, too, whenever we get together for holidays 🙂 This year, Dallas’ family came over & I hosted an entirely vegan menu. It was pretty awesome, and everyone really liked the Tofurky, too 😀 Glad you had such a great Thanksgiving!

    This is my first year for a meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free Thanksgiving and I’m looking forward to it. We had an early celebration with one side of the family last month and I pretty much brought my own dishes (to share, of course) so I would have food to eat. It’s a good thing, since only one item was vegan-friendly. Tomorrow my mom has made it a point to make several dishes to bring that are vegan-friendly and I’m bringing more dishes to share. I think this holiday is a great chance to share how delicious vegan food can be!

    I haven’t tried tofurkey and it wasn’t on my list at all, but you actually made me want to try it. Next time!

    I’m so glad to hear you liked the Tofurky because this is also my first year making one. I tried a sample at Trader Joe’s and was amazed at how good it tasted! I’ll be roasting mine up tomorrow…we’ll see if the kids like it though.

    That tofurkey actually does look pretty good. I’ve always preferred the traditional Thanksgiving sides to the turkey anyway. Sweet potato souffle with brown sugar pecan crumble is like dessert for me and I look forward to it every year.

    What a wonderful feast! That’s kind of how we do it…Dave makes a turkey, but most of the side dishes and even the “butter” are vegan. The cherry pie looks great!

    Looks like lots of people are gettin’ into the Tofurky feast this year–yours with wild rice sounds very yummy 🙂 I totally want to try that Amy’s chocolate loaf!

    Sounds like a great time and good for Matt’s mom sticking with the veganism; that definitely makes it easier for you to find something to eat there. I’ve had the Tofurky slices, but never the roast. My parents aren’t that advanced yet! How many people would you say the roast feeds?

    Isn’t this just a tremendously true a sign of how much Matt’s family love and respect you (and Matt, of course)? I’m so happy for you! Not just the food, but what it means that they made the effort. Hurrah!!

    P.S. I have to ask, though… is that canned pineapple on the spinach hummus crudite platter?!

    That’s awesome that they took care of you like that–and you make it sound like (they made it look) easy, but I know how wedded to butter folks are.

    As for the tofurkey, aside from the fact that it’s not gf, (is it?), I’m so put off by the hideous word that I can’t ever imagine it going in my mouth! But I’m glad you enjoyed it…

    My mom declared yesterday (on Thanksgiving) that she is going vegan and she’s enlisted me to help her. I’ve got lots of work to do! Lol.

    I’m glad you had an enjoyable veg-friendly Thanksgiving this year!

    What an incredibly thoughtful Thanksgiving you enjoyed 🙂 You are truly loved Amber! Can’t wait for your book…where can I buy it?

    Mmm, that Tofurkey roast looks so good.

    I did NOT know that Rice whip existed. That is amazing!

    Delish meal! I’ve never had one before, but thought about using Tofurkey next year for Thanksgiving. I’ve been catching up on my blog reading today and I’ve seen a lot of people write about its saltiness. I’ve somewhat sensitive to salt, so I don’t know if that would be a deal breaker for me. Is it overwhelmingly salty? Or is it just slightly noticeable?
