Tofurkey! Hahaha…but seriously, around our house, we LOVE tofurkey for the holidays! Follow the directions and you’ll end up with something the meat-eaters will try to steal! 🙂

I’m making Christmas dinner this year, and as an added challenge I had to come up with something my grandma, who doesn’t know I’m vegan (she’d harass me constantly if she did) would eat without it being too obvious. This year’s menu is:

  • Green salad with lemon dressing
  • Bouillabaisse of spinach, potatoes, chickpeas, and saffron (in rural France, “bouillabaisse” often bears very little resemblance to the fish stew found in fancy restaurants)
  • Penne alla Marinara
  • Sicilian-style broccoli
  • Gingerbread cookies

…but, if I didn’t have to keep Grandma’s picky eating in mind, I’d make:

  • Tofu “scallops” in Champagne sauce
  • Saffron rice
  • Roasted broccoli
  • Maybe something with citrus fruit
  • …and I’d still make the gingerbread cookies.

We usually go to my aunt’s for Christmas and she makes a Mexican menu for Christmas dinner. Alot of those dishes are vegetarian-friendly. Chile rellenos, rice, beans, for example. Pasta is also an option. What do you like?

If your family does the traditional turkey and dressing, you can do a veggie dressing with vegetable stock for a base instead of chicken broth.  Personally, I’d do a lot of filling sides, like macaroni and cheese, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, etc.

There is a delicious vegetarian lasagna that I make. My parents like it even better than it’s meatier-counterpart because the flavors of the vegetables and different cheeses show through!

I can msg you the recipe if you would like.
