Raw Vegan Holiday Recipe Round-up


The Holiday season is finally here!
For me it began a while ago, as I've secretly been listening to Christmas music earlier than most "normal" people. I'm okay with admitting this, because it makes the Holidays last much longer. In turn making me ridiculously happy!
Tomorrow kicks off the Pre-Thanksgiving food prep where I'll be in my kitchen making a long list of yummy food, listening to jazzy tunes, and taste-testing to my hearts content. I do hope you'll excuse me as Addicted to Veggies will be gone until Friday. I promise to return with photos of my Thanksgiving spread and lots of details!
I'd like to share with you some pictures of the last Farmers Market (in my town) of 2011, and then I'll give you the low-down on my own personal Thanksgiving Menu!
And of course, I had to share a photo of me with Butters, the sweetest (and only) domesticated Turkey I've ever met. I think it's safe to say that I have a crush on this guy...
And Now, How about my Thanksgiving menu?
Appetizers...
Fig and Cheeze Plate
(using the two cheezes in this post and Mini fresh figs)
French Onion Dip (click)
with various crackers and veggies 
Deviled Eggless Eggs(click)
Main Course...
Greens! Lots of em!
Nutty Quinoa Salad(click) with Wilted Swiss Chard
Lemon Thyme Cauli-'Risotto' with Asparagus(click)
Crimini Mushroom Steaks(click)

I'll be tweaking this one slightly, adding a Cacao butter and turning it into a Blackberry Marbled Cheezecake Fudge instead

Wishing you all a Happy Holiday, a wonderful Week, and lots of Tasty Eating!

  6. I am new to this blog and i love it already! Everything loos so neat and delicious! Happy Thanksgiving and may I say that's one of the most gorgeous looking raw menus I have ever seen! I am definitely stealing some of your recipes and using them this Christmas. The Eggless eggs and Nutty Quinoa salad look mouthwatering and very festive and the Orange Pumpkin Spice Latte is just dreamy! I better start learning how to do these if i want my Christmas dinner to be raw friendly.
