Thread Starter 
I am planning on doing a vegan thanksgiving feast with my best friend...my dh is raw and I want to be sure to include some dishes that he will LOVE to eat.
I invite all raw vegan Thanksgiving recipes!

post #2 of 7
These are from the files of the raw food yahoo group I'm on:

-Cranberry Sauce

* 2 C fresh cranberries
* 1 orange
* 1 apple
* 1 C dates
* water for consistency

Process cranberries, orange, apple and dates in a blender and serve.

-Pumpkin Pie

Holiday Pie Crust

* 1 part chopped almonds
* 1 part nut butter of choice (to make nut butter,
freeze nuts to prevent overheating and run through
Champion Juicer using the blank plate. If juicer strains
use oil to help it through. If desired add salt and/or honey)

Mix in a bowl and spread.

Holiday Pie Filling

* Pumpkin Pulp
* Raw honey (optional)
* 1 ripe banana
* 1 cup pitted dates
* Pumpkin pie spice (to taste)

Grind dates in Champion Juicer or hand crank meat grinder.
Mix dates, pulp, honey, and spices in a large bowl.
Slice banana in ¼ inch slices (to dress the pie).

Candied Yams

* Yams (soaked - cut yams into juicer size pieces and
soak overnight - this gets rid of the starch flavor)
* Raw Honey (to taste)
* Ground Nutmeg (to taste)
* Ground Cloves (to taste)
* Sea Salt (to taste)

Run yams through Champion Juicer using blank plate.
Add honey and spices.

I hope this at least gives you some ideas! good luck!

I saw that you listed honey as optional...just wanted to recommend Agave nectar as an alternative. I have been using it and am happy with it.

I saw a recipe for mashed potatoes using califlower as the pureed potato substitue.

1/2 cup pitted Deglet Nour dates (drier dates than Medjool)
2 cups oats
4 teaspoons agave or honey
2 teaspoons cinnamon
pinch of salt, to taste
1/2 cup cacao nibs, or chocolate chips (cooked)
Place raisins and dates in your food processor and process into small pieces. Add oats, agave or honey, cinnamon, and salt. Process to mix well. Empty into a mixing bowl and add chocolate chips. Mix well. Use a 2 Tablespoon scooper to portion cookies. Enjoy immediately, or chill before serving for firmer texture.

I'm going to try these at my house to see if they're at hit. :

I've been watching people make all sorts of vegan and raw dishes on youtube!
