We made a lot of new vegan recipes this year, and everyone was highly impressed with how everything turned out (super delicious), including the omnivores in the family. Except that I baked the stuffed acorn squash a bit too long so the quinoa got dry and crispy on top… nothing a little homemade cranberry sauce couldn’t fix. Overall, I had a ball planning and executing this creative and cruelty-free menu with my mom, which was extra special since most of the vegetables came from her garden or we received as surplus from her neighbor’s produce stand.
I’m so excited, I am already in the midst of planning our Christmas menu… watch out!
