Vegan Wellington

Vegan WellingtonIt was the first snow of the season here in Denver and the roads were treacherous, but we were determined to get to Whole Foods during rush hour. Amelia read that a plant-based chef, Kelley Williamson at PlantBasedKitchen-Recipes.com, was teaching a holiday cooking class and the main dish was Vegan Wellington.

This being our first vegan Thanksgiving, Amelia wanted to make us a special occasion meal, and the description Kelley wrote fit the bill so we trekked through the snow and only arrived 5 minutes late. It was totally worth it!

This delicious Vegan Wellington recipe is made with eggplant and other veggies in lieu of beef. It’s packed with flavor and plates nicely with your other Holiday Dishes.

Vegan Wellington is a labor of love and took us the better part of a day to make it, but the result was worth the effort. It made our Thanksgiving dinner simply amazing.

This recipe makes 2 Vegan Wellington loaves so you’ll have plenty of servings. Since there was only two of us, we froze one of the loaves to eat in a few weeks. Or you can cut the quantities in half to make one loaf.

Mom’s Famous Pie Crust will make this an extra special treat, but you can also buy frozen vegan pie dough at the store if you can find it. We couldn’t find any. The guy at Whole Foods said they were out.

You’ll need the Flax Egg recipe here. This recipe calls for two flax eggs.

You can make the mushroom mixture ahead of time to save time on the main cooking day. You can also make the Vegan Wellington loaves the day before and refrigerate them overnight so they’re ready for your holiday and you don’t have to spend the whole day cooking. Just pull them out of the refrigerator an hour early and put them in the oven 30 minutes or so before meal time and the loaves will come out piping hot and ready to eat.

Vegan Apple Pie

Vegan Apple PieLike the Vegan Cherry Pie recipe, this Vegan Apple Pie recipe is a little slice of heaven when you make it with Mom’s Famous Vegan Pie Crust. No one will know it’s vegan so it’s a great dessert to demonstrate how amazing vegan food can taste to your friends and family.

Granny Smith apples are the best choice for a vegan apple pie. The tartness of the apples pairs well with the sweetness of the sugar and spice from the cinnamon. Serve with some vanilla nice-cream and you’ve got yourself a decadent dessert for your next holiday meal or any special occasion.

Vegan Cherry Pie

Vegan Cherry PieThis vegan cherry pie combined with my Mom’s Famous Vegan Pie Crust will mean a lot of extra work for you because you’ll be asked to bring it anytime there’s a gathering of family or friends. Consider yourself warned.

No one will know this cherry pie is vegan so it’s a great dessert to demonstrate how amazing vegan food can taste to your friends and family.

Use frozen cherries for this recipe. Don’t use the canned cherry pie filling. That’ll make it too syrupy and sweet. The tartness of the cherries combined with the sugar is the savory and sweet taste you want from this pie.

You can also make this pie the same way with blueberries. Vegan Apple Pie is a little different, though.

Serve with some vanilla nice-cream and you’ve got a decadent dessert for your next holiday or special occasion.

Mom’s Famous Vegan Pie Crust

Vegan Pie CrustThis is my mom’s famous vegan pie crust. Well…at least it’s famous among our family and friends. Even though she doesn’t follow a vegan diet, she has made this exact crust since before I was born. It’s light and flaky and will make any type of pie the hit of the party.

This recipe makes 2 crusts. Use one for the top of fruit pies, or leave off the top and make two pies.

For the cook time, follow the directions on your pie recipe. There’s no need to precook this vegan pie crust.

Try it with a Vegan Pumpkin Pie, Vegan Apple Pie or Vegan Cherry Pie.

Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Vegan Pumpkin PieThis vegan pumpkin pie is one of my favorite desserts. As a kid, my mom made me a pumpkin pie every year for my birthday, which falls on Halloween. I preferred a pie to a cake and still do.

I went to my parents house just before my birthday, after switching to a vegan diet. Mom took it upon herself to make me a vegan pumpkin pie. This is the pie she made and it was delicious! No one will know this pie is vegan so serve it at your next event to show everyone how great vegan food can taste.

You can buy a store bought crust to save time, or try my Mom’s Famous Vegan Pie Crust.
