      *These will last 3-4 days in the fridge and taste even better the next day!

    • Mashed Potatoes

       (2:12)
      Peeled, cubed potatoes
      Nutritional Yeast
      Salt + Pepper
      Splash of unsweetened almond milk
      *amount of potato varies depending on how much you want to make, this is all to taste.

      1. Add peeled, cut potatoes to a pot and boil until tender, you should be able to pierce with a fork.
      2. Drain water from pot.
      3. Add nutritional yeast to taste, starting with 1/4 a cup depending on the amount of potatoes.
      4. Add any spices you like. I just added salt, pepper and nutritional yeast.
      5. Add a splash of non-dairy milk + more when blending.
      6. Use a hand mixture or masher until desired consistency.

    • Gravy

       (2:44)
      1 cup brown rice flour (or white rice flour if you can’t find brown rice)
      1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes
      2 teaspoons salt
      1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
      1 Tablespoon

      1. Finely ground black pepper (this can be quite peppery to some so if you are sensitive cut it back to two teaspoons and add more if necessary when cooking.)
      2. Blend everything together in a blender or food processor to make sure that it is evenly combined and that the nutritional yeast flakes are powdered.
      3. Store in a jar in your pantry for 6 months or more!

      Alright, now when you’re ready to make your gravy from the mix follow the directions below:

      1/4 cup gravy mix
      2 cups unsweetened soy, almond or your favourite non-dairy milk (it must be unsweetened!)

      1. Whisk your gravy mix and soy milk in a small pot over medium-high heat.
      2. Cook until thickened. Make sure you are stirring it while cooking, it should only take a couple of minutes to thicken up. The nice thing about rice flour is that it doesn’t clump up though so you can be a little more careless with the whisking!

  5. Vegan Pumpkin Pie

    by Jocelynne Flor

    Pie Crust
    1 1/2 cups flour {cold}, plus additional flour for rolling
    8 tablespoons vegan butter {cold}
    1 teaspoon maple syrup
    2-4 tablespoons ice cold water
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.
    2. The key to flaky pie crust is using COLD ingredients: Place your measured flour in the fridge or freezer for about 10 minutes (I used a mixture of all purpose and spelt flour.)
    3. In a food processor fitted with an S-blade, pulse the flour, salt, maple syrup, and butter until crumbly. Alternatively you can go old school and cut the butter into the flour using two knives, a fork, or even your hands if you don’t own a food processor.
    4. Transfer this mixture to a bowl and stir in the ice cold water one tablespoon at a time until a stick dough is formed.
    5. Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour.
    6. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/2 a centimetre thick. Line a 9 inch pie pan with the dough and trim away the excess.
    7. Poke a few holes in the bottom of the crust using a fork. Place your pie dish in the fridge while you make the filling.

    Pumpkin Pie Filling
    1 block (300g) soft or silken tofu
    2 cups pure pumpkin (FRESH is best, but canned will do if you’re short on time)
    1 tablespoon pumpkin spice
    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon vanila extract
    pinch of salt

    1. Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
    2. Pour into the pie crust and bake for 30-40 minutes or until no longer jiggly.
    3. Cool down COMPLETELY before slicing.
    4. Top with coconut whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon.

Happy Thanksgiving 🙏
