What no Turkey????
Yes, there are some of us who, do not want to eat Tom the Turkey. Never again. mmm. I had to give it some thought. I grew up eating Turkey and ham for Thanksgiving. But this Thanksgiving I though let me try a dinner with no meat. That is right. Just fruits and vegetables. Fresh , no canned food. mmm. And some seeds throw in.
Yes,, eating fruits with seeds , because the seeds have healing powers. And it is where the plant gets its nutrients from.
Fresh cranberry sauce blend with dates, apple and orange juice
1 cup pitted dates
3 cups of fresh cranberries
1/2 cup of orange juice
1-small apple , cored and diced
optional (toasted pecans pieces for garnish)
Soak dates in hot water for 15 minutes or until dates soften.
Mix-all ingredients in food processor and blend utnil smooth, but not too watery. Place sauce in covered bowl and cool in refrigerator for 10-20 minutes. Before serving, top with toasted pecan pieces for garnish.
We also had savory cornbread stuffing, along with spicy collard greens with sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts, vegan mac and cheese and fresh vanilla sweet potato cream pie. .All were very delicious.
