Thanksgiving Desserts + 1,000 Vegan Recipes Cookbook “Thanks-Giveaway”!

by Robin on November 19, 2012

in Uncategorized

For most of last week’s Thanksgiving posts, the subjects were savory.  Today we get to the important stuff: dessert!

One of the great thing about traditional Thanksgiving desserts is that they are easy to veganize and they can be a wonderful way to introduce omnis to the wonders of vegan food.

The problem at my house is limiting the holiday dessert to just one, especially since we all have our favorites.  Jon loves apple pie, I’m crazy for pumpkin cheesecake, and I heard a rumor that one of our guests this year is craving pecan pie.

If I have time, I may end up doing mini-versions of each so that I can serve a variety.  We may just want to skip dinner and go right to dessert.  The Pumpkin Cheesecake with Cranberry Drizzle and the Pecan Pie are just two of the recipes that can be found in my book, 1,000 Vegan Recipes.  Here’s the pecan pie recipe in case you don’t have it handy:

Pecan Pie
This super-rich, nutty pie needs no embellishment, but adding a scoop of vanilla is hard to resist.  To save time, you can substitute a ready-made vegan pie shell instead of making it from scratch. This recipe is from 1,000 Vegan Recipes by Robin Robertson.

For the crust:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegan margarine, cut into small pieces
3 tablespoons cold water
For the filling:
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup plus 1/4 cup water, divided
3/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegan margarine
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups pecan halves or pieces

For the crust: Preheat the oven to 400°F.  Place the flour and salt in a food processor and pulse to combine.  Add the margarine and process until crumbly.  Add enough of the water to form a soft dough.  Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and fit the dough into a pie plate.  Trim the dough and flute the edges. Prick holes in bottom of dough with a fork.  Bake until golden, about 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and set aside.  Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F.

For the filling:  In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and the 1/4 cup water and set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine the remaining 3/4 cup water, maple syrup, and brown sugar, and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 5 minutes then stir in the salt and the cornstarch mixture. Cook, stirring until the mixture thickens and becomes shiny. Remove from the heat and add the margarine and vanilla, stirring to melt the margarine.  Add the pecans, stirring to coat. Pour the pecan mixture into the prebaked crust, spreading evenly. Bake for 30 minutes. Cool on a rack for about 1 hour, then refrigerate until chilled.

 
THANKS-GIVEAWAY: To celebrate Thanksgiving and share the bounty of vegan recipes in my ultimate vegan cookbook, I’ve having a Cookbook Giveaway this week for a chance to win a copy of 1,000 Vegan Recipes.

To enter: just leave a comment at the end of this post — you can leave any comment you like, from your favorite Thanksgiving dessert to what you are thankful for this year.  A winner will be chosen at random on Sunday 11/25 at midnight and announced on Monday 11/26.  Even if you have a copy of 1,000 Vegan Recipes, you should enter.  It makes a great gift — or even a great prop: just hold it up whenever anyone asks “what’s left to eat if you don’t eat meat and dairy?”

For a second chance to win (and also to help spread the word) link to this giveaway on your own blog, or on Facebook, and/or Twitter, and then leave a second comment here.

I’m thankful that the accident that put me in a wheelchair didn’t kill me, and that I have such a wonderful service dog. I’m thankful for the son who became my caregiver, and makes such wonderful vegan meals for us, and the Church ministry that learned to make vegan meals so they ccould provide meals for us twice a week. Those lovely women had no idea about “vegan” and have done a lovely job with love.

I think that would be a really cool idea as a prop.

“What do you eat if you don’t eat animal?”
*Hold up 1000 Vegan Recipes* Choose! :D

I’d have to say (other than the obvious, health, freedom, etc), that veganism/plant-based eating has really started to take off. Everyone is becoming vegetarian (and most vegetarians are taking that step to become vegans). It’s becoming so mainstream now, Ellen’s a big voice for the vegan movement, veganism is popping in on the “Food Network” (Chloe/Doron on Cupcake wars, yay for them!), now we just need to have full shows! And You Robin, just every year you come out with fantastic books! You’d think after 1000 (and all your others!) you’d be stumped, but you just keep showing the world, we can eat fantastically without having to cause animals suffering.

And now. Let’s talk about that pie….

One of my faves is the “Brown Rice & Bean Salad in Cumin Dressing” which I used to demonstrate how simple yet delicious & healthy vegan food can be at our local 4-H group here in Honolulu. The video has been seen more than 1500 times on YouTube since January. Mahalo nui loa, Robin, for all your wonderful vegan recipes!

The Pumpkin Cheesecake with Cranberry Drizzle and the Pecan Pie look delicious, and I would like to make these recipes. In the past several months, I have checked out some of your books from the library as well as other books on becoming Vegan. It is exciting and encouraging to find all these great recipes that do not require dairy etc. When one decides to eat the Vegan lifestyle, one realizes the huge abundance of variety awaiting them in healthy, whole foods. I hope I win your 1,000 recipes because I have had my eye on this book. I need to cook a vegan breakfast casserole for my bible study in a few weeks. I don’t think they will miss the meat and dairy if I find the right recipe. I am thankful for all the recipes you have provided and for all the love.

I’d love to win this cookbook. I’ve been cooking from your new Slow Cooker cookbook and already have a few favorites. Hubby (not vegan) asked for the tortilla soup today. Yum!

So many things to be thankful for… Most particularly my family. I’m so thankful that my wonderful husband has come home safely from his latest deployment; thankful that my step-daughter generally doesn’t talk back in the least; thankful for my amazing parents who have and continue to do so much for me/us; thankful for my brother, who has become one of my best friends…

I am thankful for the great strides that veg*nism has made each and every year, resulting in more options for us outside the home. While I doubt the whole world will change, it’s comforting to see the small changes happening around us. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

My favorite Thanksgiving dessert is my no bake pumpkin cheesecake which I am trying to veganize this year. I hope it came out ok.

I am thankful for so many things. Most importantly that I have my health, a roof over my head, and enough money to buy food. We often forget how many people there are who are homeless or don’t know where their next meal is coming from. We should never take these things for granted!

And thank YOU for the giveaway!

My mouth is watering after discovering that Robin Robertson has written more books besides Vegan Planet (which I borrowed from the library last week.) Now on to 1000 Vegan Recipes and Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker! I am new to vegan cooking and as a nurse practitioner I intend to teach more people the how’s and why’s of becoming vegan too. I am so glad I discovered you, Robin.

Hi Robin,
Thanks so much for all your delicious recipes. One of my standbys for Thanksgiving is my raw cranberry relish. In blender, add one bag of cranberries with a peeled and seeded orange and maple syrup to taste – and blend away. So Delicious!

I’ve been a vegan for a long time, but I’ve never had a cookbook. I’m thankful for being lucky in the kitchen, despite my lack of direction–but I’d love to finally have a wonderful cookbook for new ideas.

For our Thanksgiving I made a delicious vegan gravy, and it was even the meat-eaters’ favorite element. I love being able to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.

What a generous offering! Thank you, Robin.

This year, though I was away from home and from my family, I was blessed enough to get to celebrate two Thanksgivings: I celebrated the Canadian one in October, as I am Canadian, and, because I work with Americans in Italy, we celebrated American Thanksgiving just last week. How special to have been a part of two celebrations of gratitude—not to mention being in the company of individuals who, despite not being vegan themselves, went out of their way to make vegan food for me. What a delight!

Though I’ve been vegan for about 7 years now, I’ve never eaten a Tofurkey. While my homemade main dishes have always been excellent, I do wonder what the classic vegetarian dish tastes like. It’s a combination of soy and gluten, right?
