I cannot believe that next week is Thanksgiving. How?! When?! Can someone please explain this to me?! My new cookbook, The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook, was released at the end of last month and I've been busy book-touring and yoga instructing, so things have been absolutely flying by around here! Before we know it, it's going to be CHRISTMAS. But not so fast - for now, we've still got a Thanksgiving dinner to plan for, and I've got you covered. I've rounded up 33 of my best, Thanksgiving-worthy dishes that're totally vegan and good enough to impress your (or my) cranky grandma. Dishes like my Cranberry Apple Walnut Stuffing, Garam Masala Roasted Acorn Squash, and Purple Sweet Potato Pie Bars are sure to please everyone at your table this year!
I'm thankful for everyone that's on this journey with me: whether you're here because you're vegan, trying to eat a little healthier, or just stumbled across the page this morning - I'm happy you're here. Now, get your stretchy jeans ready and let's get cookin'!

Homestyle Vegan Cookbook Release + Sneak Peek Recipe!
GUYS, IT'S FINALLY HERE! After over a year of hard work, edits, re-shoots, tears, taste-tests and successes, my Homestyle Vegan cookbook has finally arrived on my doorstep - and some of yours already, too! I poured everything I have into this book - and somehow I loved it enough that I think I'm crazy enough to want to do another one...ha! I worked hard to make this book a cookbook I would want to make room for on my already-crowded shelf. I wanted this book to have recipe basics that will be you reaching for daily, but some amazing Holiday favorites that will have you consulting it each year before Thanksgiving dinner, too.
I was inspired with this book to re-create favorites from my childhood in Maine, along with dishes I had learned to love as an adult, but as healthfully reimagined as possible - without using any trendy superfoods or hard-to-find ingredients. In fact, every ingredient in the book is one you'll be able to find at your local grocery store - I promise. (Unless you live in like rural Alaska - I can't help you there!)
Oh and did we mention? NO TOFU or FAUX MEAT in the whole damn book! And most recipes include soy-free and gluten-free substitutions as well. Below are a few sneak peeks you may have already missed on our IG. You can also find our cookbook posts under #HomestyleVeganCookbook. Ready to get your copy? Buy it here!
In Homestyle Vegan, you’ll have access to creative vegan remakes of old favorites, such as:
The dishes inside are broken up into sections like 'Cook Up Some Comfort Food', 'Meals That'll Stick To Your Ribs', and 'Bake-Sale Worthy Baked Goods' you'll be able to easily find exactly what kind of recipe you're looking for. If you still can't find it you can head all the way to our detailed index in the back. Each recipes is served up with a full-page color photo, detailed instructions, and helpful recipe tips + tricks.
And now, the recipe...
Apple Cider Donuts
Growing up in Maine we would often visit apple orchards in the Fall with our elementary school classes to pick apples, press cider, and munch as many apple cider donuts as we could get our tiny hands on. Of course, the donuts were always the highlight of the trip for me. Luckily I’m an adult now, so I can pick apples more than once a year, and make these delicious homemade donuts anytime I want. This recipe is almost too easy - you’ll have fresh, sweet donuts in half an hour or less! Makes 6
1 cup (150 g) all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (136 g) applesauce
1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
1/4 cup (60 ml) apple cider
2 tablespoons (30 ml) apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons (30 ml) coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup (113 g) powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the applesauce, sugar, apple cider and apple cider vinegar. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients about a cup at a time, stirring to combine. Pour in the melted coconut oil and whisk to incorporate. Let mixture set while you grease a 6-mold donut pan.
Once the pan is greased and the oven is preheated, pour the mixture equally between the 6 donut molds and bake for 15 minutes. While the donuts bake, whisk together the powdered sugar and cinnamon in a wide dish.
When the donuts finish cooking, move them to a cooling rack for to cool slightly, then roll them in the powdered sugar mixture until they’re completely coated. Enjoy immediately!
Leftover donuts last 1-2 days in an airtight container on the counter, but are best enjoyed fresh.
