“Man cannot live by bread alone; he must have peanut butter.”James A. Garfield

My new favorite cookies, these moist, rich, chewy little gems are from Ann Gentry’s The Real Food Daily Cookbook, page 214. These Peanut Butter and Jam cookies went down nicely with an ice cold glass of hemp milk. They are made using barley and oat flours, so they are wheat-free. I love Ann Gentry’s recipes because they contain simple, whole-foods ingredients and they are full of flavor.

Peanut Butter Fact: Arachibutyrophobia is the fear of getting peanut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth.

Faux Turkey with Corn-Sage Stuffing, Green Bean Casserole, Mashed Potatoes, Mushroom Gravy, and Cranberry Sauce ~ From Vegetate, Vegan Cooking and Food Blog

“I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land.”Jon Stewart

Everything for this delectable autumn feast was from The Real Food Daily Cookbook by Ann Gentry except for the cranberry sauce, which was store-bought.

Here’s what we made:

  • Faux Turkey Breasts (page 180) – made from a base of tempeh and tofu with miso, dijon, and herbs.
  • Corn-Sage Stuffing (page 182) – made from vegetables, herbs, and fresh-baked Southern Style Skillet Cornbread (page 182).
  • Green Bean Casserole (page 183) – a tasty casserole of roasted green beans, gravy, and fried onions.
  • Mushroom Gravy (page 69) – made using dried porcinis, shiitakes, and white button mushrooms, this was one rich gravy.
  • Mashed Potatoes – boiled, mashed, and eaten with delight.

This dinner was savory, well-balanced, and wonderful. We doubled the recipe so we’d have leftovers for faux turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce sandwiches later!

Thanksgiving Facts (from Wikipedia): President Jefferson called a federal Thanksgiving proclamation “the most ridiculous idea ever conceived.” Also, held every year on the island of Alcatraz since 1975, “Unthanksgiving Day” commemorates the survival of Native Americans following the arrival and settlement of Europeans in the Americas.
