Just saw SuperVegan’s INCREDIBLE listing of all the delicious vegan Thanksgiving options available around NYC.  Everything sounds so great, I wouldn’t know where to begin!

Baked Acorn Squash With Walnut Oil and Maple Syrup

Also, the New York Times’s Well” blog has been running vegetarian Thanksgiving recipes, most of which I’m sure can be veganized. I appreciate the shout-out to a healthier, veg lifestyle at all during this season of gross overindulgence and overconsumption.

Polenta Cakes with Cranberries

And for all you creative chefs out there, you should peek at Mark Bittman’s “101 Head Starts on the Day,” a compendium of easy, make-ahead Thanksgiving dishes, including many that are already vegetarian or vegan and others that could easily be made so.

Me? I’m hoping Mamoun’s is open on Thanksgiving so I can buy a tasty $2.50 falafel sandwich—about all my pocketbook can take right now. Cheers!

Hello Again

Would you happen to have a recipe for the polenta cakes?

Comment by seeker2008

Sure! It’s No. 27 on this page at the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/18/dining/18mini.html?_r=2&pagewanted=2&8dpc
And obviously you’d simply replace the milk with the non-dairy milk of your choice.
