VeggieDag Thursday: A very veggie Thanksgiving

"You're convincing no one on Turkey Day with your parsnip/veggie loaf talk," was the comment.

Well, this was our Thanksgiving menu. We started with Cranberry-Apple Relish. Then, Potato/Parnsip Latkes and Zucchini Pancakes, topped with Citrus-Creamy Spinach.

The main course was a Seitan Loaf in Cremini Mushroom Gravy. On the side were Cider-Braised Brussels Sprouts and Dark Ale-Roasted Carrots and Parsnips.

For beverages, we served, for wine, a Cru Beaujolias 2006, a Gruner Veltliner, and for beer, two saisons: Hennepin from Brewery Ommegang and Local 1 from Brooklyn Brewery. (For more on pairing beer with the Thanksgiving meal, read this piece from The Wine Enthusiast.)

There was a Honey-Roasted Ham for the meat-eaters, but by the time all the veggie courses had been served, most of the ham remained. Dessert was a store-bought Blueberry Pie and a home-cooked Tofu-Pumpkin Pie.

VeggieDag is an occasional Thursday post. Why the name? Here.
