Thanksgiving is right around the corner and man am I pumped. Evenmore so this year because it will be my first soley plant-based thanksgiving ever! Finally a chance to give my family a taste of how good a plant-based holiday can really be.
A lot of people can’t picture a vegan thanksgiving because they get fixated on the fact that there is no turkey present. Fortunately, a vegan thanksgiving features all the other traditional eats – stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, green beens – and tons of other plant-based goodies too. You’ve got your sweet potato soups, veggie lasagnas and yes, even your favorite pies! All it takes are a few easy substitutions and a bit of creativity, to make a healthy and delicious holiday possible.
And these biscuits will help get you started. They are a fun twist on your average dinner rolls – filling, slightly sweet and even super cheap to make. I had most of the ingredients lying around besides the sweet potato, so my total cost ended up being a whopping $0.46. Talk about a sweet deal (and a sweet dinner roll).
Happy Holidays friends!
