Every year for Thanksgiving I make the much anticipated Hickory Smoked Turkey for my turkey loving family and friends, even though I am plant-based. I treated myself as an after-thought–I just quickly microwaved vegetables and a large potato, portioned off some salad without the dressing, and had fruit for dessert. That was my Thanksgiving feast. Not anymore! Now that I have two sisters-in-law who have become plant-based, and all of you to cook for, I decided to add a very special entree, so that our Thanksgiving dinner will be just as special and delicious, and cooked with love, as a traditional Thanksgiving feast, but oh so much healthier!!! I saw a gorgeous Cinderella pumpkin at the market and decided to create a piece of “art” using the pumpkin as the canvas. It includes 3 “dishes” to make this one large entree, and it takes some time, but all the elements should be cooked ahead and then just assembled for last minute heating the day of the big event. The recipe ends up being really easy, and very impressive! Added benefit: you can use the Lentils and Rice, Kale and mushroom recipes as side dishes for other occasions!
Fairy Tales do come true for a memorable Thanksgiving feast
