Vegan Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Dinner

This easy vegan Thanksgiving dinner is absolutely delicious and can be made in just one hour. I swear. And it happens to be gluten-free as well. The impressive ensemble–a high protein marinated tofu dish, hearty grain course, and bitter-buttery charred greens–will impress family or friends as an example of clean, cruelty-free eating without compromising taste.

Vegan Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Recipes

To get started, marinate the tofu beforehand as explained in the Vegan Chicken Parikash recipe.

Next, get the rice-quinoa combination cooking in the rice cooker as I state in the recipe for Rice Quinoa Pilaf with Almonds and Dried Cranberries. If you don’t have a rice cooker, I highly recommend buying one. They’re affordable and make cooking grains so easy. For now, you can cook the grains in a pot with the same measurements – just cook on low heat with the lid tipped open for 25-30 minutes.

Then, preheat the oven at 350 F for baking the tofu and green veggies.

Get the onion-carrot-celery stir fry going for the pilaf. It only takes 5 minutes to cook down.

Next, cut up, season and spread on a baking sheet the Brussels sprouts for this recipe for Extra Crispy Roasted Brussels Sprouts. You can actually use any hearty vegetable for this dish–broccoli, cauliflower or squash.

Place the marinated tofu slices on a baking sheet.

Throw the greens and tofu in the oven. Bake according to the recipe instructions.

Once the grains are done cooking, scoop them into a large serving bowl, mix in the stir fried veggies and toppings as stated in the recipe.

Once they’re done roasting, take the greens and tofu out of the oven. Place the food on nice serving trays.

Like magic: a beautiful, impressive, delicious vegan meal that happens to be gluten-free as well. And you didn’t sweat away in the kitchen all day.

More amazing dessert ideas can be found on Addicted To Dates. As a new blogger, I recently discovered this web site, and I’m obsessed. The recipes look amazing, and most of them are sweetened with unprocessed plant sources like dates and maple syrup. I rarely bake with cane sugar, so my Addicted To Dates recipe wish list is piling up.
