Robin’s Introduction:

My 2009 Thanksgiving menu features several recipes from my latest book, 1,000 Vegan Recipes. Seitan is the main course, but instead of a large roast as in years past, I’ve opted for individual portions of pastry-wrapped stuffed seitan slices served with a luscious Madeira sauce. (For a gluten-free main-dish, you can make the rice-stuffed winter squash instead of the seitan.)

Accompaniments from the pages of 1,000 Vegan Recipes include Rum-Spiked Sweet Potatoes with Pomegranate Pecans and a dazzling Triple Cranberry Relish. I like to serve this dinner plated individually (instead of served family-style) for a more elegant presentation, with the seitan parcel nestled against a mound of garlic smashers (our favorite mashed potatoes dish), topped with Madeira sauce, and accented with roasted asparagus spears. With all that food, I won’t be serving a soup this year, but of course, we’ll save room for pumpkin cheesecake, which is a Thanksgiving dessert tradition in my house.
