Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes for Every Course + A Cookbook Sneak Peek!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on October 11, 2013


And so it begins.

The next round of cookbook editing is going down in my living room. This round is called the “first pass” and it marks the first time that I’ve done any editing on paper. It’s kinda nice to be off a computer screen for a bit, however spending half my life on a keyboard has not improved my penmanship one bit! Oh boy, I feel like I need to re-train my hand how to write…

It felt a bit like Christmas morning when this huge package arrived in the mail this week…for some reason, I felt so nervous to open it!


I love seeing the book in its actual size – a gorgeous 8×10” trim (I fought hard for this large trim size!) with 100 of my most-loved photographs and recipes.

Line by line, I’m going through the entire book with a fine tooth comb marking any last minute edits in red ink. Hopefully by page 300 I can still see straight! Maybe an IV of caffeine would help?


Thank you again for supporting me throughout this journey. I never thought I’d be here, that is for sure.

As many of you know, it’s also Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. Big work assignments love to fall around holidays, don’t they? I had high hopes of sharing a couple Thanksgiving recipes for you this week, but I’m afraid they are not quite ready to share. I did a trial of this stew yesterday and was hoping to finalize the recipe this morning after a second trial, but I haven’t nailed the gravy broth yet. The first trial was too bland and the second one, well, let’s just say I overcompensated a bit. I guess you know what I’ll be eating for the next week. It will just have to wait a bit longer. In the meantime, I’ve put together a round-up of some of my favourite Thanksgiving recipes from my archives and from some of my favourite blogs! As always, no turkey is required to enjoy one helluva good holiday meal.

To my fellow Canadians, I wish you all a lovely Thanksgiving!

For the record, growing up my favourite flavour of doughnut was always Maple Glazed or Sour Cream Glazed (from Tim Hortons, of course). I think I will have to recreate one some day…

I am sure your cookbook is going to be beautiful and amazing when it is released- can’t wait to feed my cookbook addiction with it :-)

I wish people would cook the food before leaving feedback and comments.

Hi Angela,

I am struggling to find a vegan stuffing casserole for friendsgiving. .. Did you enjoy the butternut squash and Brussel one you mention here? Or have you found another that you enjoy?
I trust you most, but noticed you didn’t have your own! :)

Hey Paige, Awww you are so right I don’t have my own!! So sorry about that. I haven’t tried the butternut squash stuffing that is linked in the post yet…it seems to have a lot of comments though so I would try reading through those? I’ll have to get the wheels turning on my own stuffing. :)
