Want to impress your guests? Make this vegan Thanksgiving Menu consisting of seitan steaks, crispy potato croquettes, pan-roasted Brussels sprouts, lingonberry jam, and cranberry moscow mules! All made from scratch!
Although we don’t typically celebrate Thanksgiving in Austria, my boyfriend and I do. We cook up a feast and enjoy a lovely meal together. And yes, it’s all about the food for us!
As a vegan, Thanksgiving (or any festive dinner) with relatives can be very difficult. Especially when you still have to face snarky comments about your dietary choice. I’ve been there!
It might seem challenging at first, to make a vegan Thanksgiving, but there are actually many options! So I created a completely vegan Thanksgiving Menu consisting of a main dish, two sides, a sauce, and a cocktail.
‘Meaty’ Main Dish – Vegan Seitan Steaks
Thanks to vital wheat gluten, homemade seitan is not that hard to make at all! First, I’ve steamed the seitan steaks and then pan-roasted them in a grilling pan for the authentic grill marks. Looks so real! Don’t you think?!
Side Dish – Pan-Roasted Brussels Sprouts in Soy Sauce
Brussels sprouts are the perfect seasonal side dish! These are pan-roasted in soy sauce. Easy to make and so delicious!
Side Dish – Potato Croquettes
Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. These vegan Potato Croquettes bring potatoes to the table – but in a fancy way!
Sauce – Lingonberry Jam
Lingonberry jam is not your typical sweet jam. This one is quite tart, so it’s the perfect condiment for seitan steaks. Also, the lingonberry jam and potato croquette combo is super delicious!
Cocktail – Cranberry Moscow Mule
A good cocktail makes any dinner better. This fruity version of Moscow Mule is the perfect addition for all the fall flavors on the plate. Garnish with fresh cranberries and rosemary twigs to make it super festive!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy the time and amazing food with your loved ones! :)
