Clockwise from the top: caramelized onion butternut roast with chestnuts (from Veganomicon), mashed potatoes (Idaho potatoes, Earth Balance, sea salt, vegan cream cheese), homestyle gravy (from American Vegan Kitchen), 21 grain stuffing (recipe in progress), simple cranberry sauce (fresh cranberries, sugar, water), and a wheat roll.

Sweet & Spicy Cranberry Tomato Salsa

Celery-Onion Stuffing
