Thanksgiving!

I blogged about my plans in an earlier post but here is the real deal. My main course was the Vegan Cassoulet from Skinny Bitch Ultimate Everyday Cookbook by Kim Barnouin.

I also had sides of baked sweet potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts.

Dessert was pumpkin pecan pie with coconut whipped cream

I used a store-bought vegan graham cracker crust 😮
I had some leftover filling that wouldn’t fit so I made some custard cups. I made a crumble of coarsely ground pecans and oats mixed with some maple syrup. I put the crumble in the bottom, filled the cup with the pie filling, baked them, and then topped them with more crumble. Yum!

Finally I made this no-bake pumpkin dessert (I halved the recipe). I found it too rich & heavy on the coconut oil so I’d use way less next time, but it was delicious!

Everything was a big hit with the omnivores. And me 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Delighted you liked it, and great to hear that it adapts well to less coconut oil! Happy belated Thanksgiving. xo

      Thanks! For the record I was the only one who found it too rich. There were no other complaints 🙂 I haven’t tried it with less oil so I don’t know if the consistency would be negatively affected but I look forward to experimenting 🙂 my girlfriends & I were compulsively eating the leftovers last night 🙂
