Do you cringe when when they chop off the head of the "Chinese Turkey" at the end of "A Christmas Story"?
Do you think Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving dinner of popcorn and toast sounds pretty good?
If so, I think you will enjoy the No Beast Feast:
Tofurkey with Gravy
Apple Cranberry Sauce
And for Dessert:
Pumpkin Apple Bread Pudding.
So clean out the root cellar, and get cooking!
Step 1: Soy Butter
1/2 C Soy Milk
1C vegetable oil
2tsp Lemon Juice
And a blender.
Put the soy milk in the blender, and turn it on. Pour the oil in slowly. When it's thick, add the lemon juice.
(it's sort of a cross between sourcream and butter. We use it in two recipes for the feast.)
Step 2: Christmas Coleslaw
- I had some cabbage to use up, and I don't like cooked cabbage that much
- I like salad with dinner, but good lettuce is hard to find in the winter.
- It's red and green, very x-masy.
The crisp, cold, and tangy coleslaw goes well with this dinner.
Some cabbage. (Say 1/2 a head red and 1 small head green)
1/2 C Cider vinegar, (or red wine vinegar)
1/2 of the soy butter (see step 1)
2 tsp sugar
1- 2T Spicy Mustard
Kohlrabi or celeric if you have it
salt and pepper.
Shred the cabbage, put it in a big bowl. Julienne the Kohlrabi and/or celeric, and add it to the cabbage.
Add the vinegar, soy butter, sugar, mustard, and salt and pepper.
toss it all up, cover it and put it in the fridge for a few hours.
