People always ask me “What do you eat if you don’t eat turkey?” I have gone many times with an abundance of delicious vegan side dishes that to me make up a fine meal. This year I – by my son’s inspiration – included fish to the menu. The fixings I created can be enjoyed well beyond Thanksgiving: Chipotle Quinoa Salad, Arugula Salad with Apples and Walnuts, Broiled Salmon marinated in ginger pomegranate juice, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Cornbread with a side of cranberry sauce. Everything I made was gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and delicious; including the chocolate brownie topped with fresh fruit.
The real topper was the next day my daughter and I headed off to the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. We spent the rest of the weekend taking care of these wonderful animals which was the best treat of all. So not only were our palettes satisfied over this holiday; our hearts were too.
