Do you have a mountain of Thanksgiving leftovers in your fridge that you’re not sure what to do with? This years Jasmine and I spent hours in the kitchen preparing the most epic feast to enjoy, however our eyes were bigger than our stomachs, and we have leftovers to last us the rest of the year (if only they would stay good for that long). We had so much fun preparing the food and getting everything ready for the holiday, check out Jasmine’s video below:
As Thanksgiving rapidly approaches, and the Friendsgiving potluck dinners are in full swing, I thought it would be appropriate to share one of my favorite thanksgiving side dishes, completely revamped and veganized. Growing up, I always looked forward to my mom’s mashed potatoes around the holiday or whenever she felt like making them. I would create mashed potato mountains sky high on my plate and devour every last bite.
Jasmine of sweetsimplevegan.com and I, teamed up to celebrate #Novemburger with two fun veggie burger recipes that are easy to make and delicious to eat!
A little over a month ago, I moved across the country from NJ to CA and have since been welcomed by some amazing people with incredible talent. In particular, Jasmine, who is so full of positive energy and an uplifting spirit. I feel so grateful to be able to share my interests and passions with her. We’ve been having the most fun developing recipe ideas and going on adventures across Southern California.
While I was living in a temporary space in LA, during the apartment hunt, we were inspired to make veggie burgers after trying a Hilary’s Eat Well burger that was reminiscent of Thanksgiving. We thought it would be fun to each make our own versions to share with you all. Below is my recipe for chickpea lentil burgers served on pretzel bun sliders. Jasmine’s recipe for gluten-free herbed millet burgers is just below!
Over a week and a half, I had the pleasure of exploring some of the best vegan restaurants in Los Angeles, as well as adventuring around the area with Jasmine of Sweet Simple Vegan. I did my best to recapture the highlights in a day-by-day post featuring some incredible vegan restaurants and some of the activities we enjoyed.
