A Vegan Feast

Vegan, Thanksgiving, Tofu, Potato Salad, Stuffing, Sweet Potato, Harlingen, Rio Grande Valley

Thanksgiving is usually a time for increased stress. It is nice driving to San Antonio to visit family, but it isn't all that nice eating the vegan food we prepared around such a massive animal massacre. After six years of marriage, however, this was the first Thanksgiving that we had at our house. We cooked up our best Thanksgiving meal to date. I mostly made the cornbread stuffing and the potato salad, and Anita made the muffins, the sugar-glazed baked sweet potatoes and the cashew encrusted baked tofu. She also made the cornbread that I used for the stuffing. I really can't believe how well the potato salad came out. We looked through all of our cookbooks to see if we could find something that could be veganized. We used a recipe from an old cookbook put together by some Army wives (including my mother). Wouldn't you know it, after we made the potato salad the first time a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving, we discovered the recipe had been written by my mother.


  1. Just wanted to say hi! I'm exploring veganism (a tofu pup, if you will) AND I'm a native Texan stuck in NYC... I was born in McAllen and have lived in Weslaco and Edinburg, though I grew up in Dallas :)

  2. That looks absolutely amazing. :-)
