Instant Vegan Thanksgiving.
You have until Sunday, November 20 to get your your order in for Miss Rachel's Vegan Thanksgiving. I was lucky enough to receive a Thanksgiving preview from Rachel and it was bliss. I felt like I was cheating on Thanksgiving by starting a week early and enjoying it by myself while watching trashy TV in my yoga pants while Mr. Vedge was out of town. AWESOME.
The standout here for this $22 heat-and-eat feast? You'll get leftovers out of it, which is incredibly important for traditional purposes. But I must say, the real highlight was the Green Bean Casserole, which I've never had prepared vegan before. I have no idea what's in it, but it's creamy, savory, crispy, and about a thousand other adjectives all at once.
The Turkey-style Seitan was quite different, I kept thinking of stuffing as it was bready, but very good. Less chewy in texture than regular seitan, Rachel said there was tofu involved. If this somehow finds its way onto a future sandwich...there was also mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy, and stuffing to round it out.
If you already have Thanksgiving plans but want to be a cheater like me, order it for Tuesday or Wednesday and live life. Order details are here.
