Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes for Every Course + A Cookbook Sneak Peek! – Oh She Glows (2024)

Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes for Every Course + A Cookbook Sneak Peek! – Oh She Glows (1)

And so it begins.

The next round of cookbook editing is going down in my living room. This round is called the “first pass” and it marks the first time that I’ve done any editing on paper. It’s kinda nice to be off a computer screen for a bit, however spending half my life on a keyboard has not improved my penmanship one bit! Oh boy, I feel like I need to re-train my hand how to write…

It felt a bit like Christmas morning when this huge package arrived in the mail this week…for some reason, I felt so nervous to open it!

I love seeing the book in its actual size – a gorgeous 8×10” trim (I fought hard for this large trim size!) with 100 of my most-loved photographs and recipes.

Line by line, I’m going through the entire book with a fine tooth comb marking any last minute edits in red ink. Hopefully by page 300 I can still see straight! Maybe an IV of caffeine would help?

Thank you again for supporting me throughout this journey. I never thought I’d be here, that is for sure.

As many of you know, it’s also Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. Big work assignments love to fall around holidays, don’t they? I had high hopes of sharing a couple Thanksgiving recipes for you this week, but I’m afraid they are not quite ready to share. I did a trial of this stew yesterday and was hoping to finalize the recipe this morning after a second trial, but I haven’t nailed the gravy broth yet. The first trial was too bland and the second one, well, let’s just say I overcompensated a bit. I guess you know what I’ll be eating for the next week. It will just have to wait a bit longer. In the meantime, I’ve put together a round-up of some of my favourite Thanksgiving recipes from my archives and from some of my favourite blogs! As always, no turkey is required to enjoy one helluva good holiday meal.

To my fellow Canadians, I wish you all a lovely Thanksgiving!

Last but not least, the winner of the Baked Doughnuts for Everyone giveaway goes to #519 – Christine H. Her favourite doughnut flavour is “Double chocolate with sprinkles!”

Congrats Christine! I will shoot you an email to collect your info. Thanks again to Ashley for this generous giveaway. :)

For the record, growing up my favourite flavour of doughnut was always Maple Glazed or Sour Cream Glazed (from Tim Hortons, of course). I think I will have to recreate one some day…

I can’t wait to buy your cookbook! Many of your recipes make regular appearances in our house (the broccoli cheez soup is a weekly item!) and your soft ginger cookies and pumpkin gingerbread are always top sellers at our scout event bake sales. The sneak peaks of the pics here look lovely! Congratulations!

I just want to thank you Angela for all of your hard work in producing such great recipes. In February my husband was diagnosed with sugar diabetes and I decided to make changes in the way we eat. We haven’t entirely gone vegan but I am finding that your recipes work very well for cutting back on sugar and additives. It is back to the basics for us. I love how you embrace all kinds of vegetables and we are slowly but surely getting there. When I would read in your blog about drinking a green smoothie and how much you loved it, I would think that is just nuts. And speaking of nuts we sure have embraced them. I have yet to sit and eat a whole spaghetti squash by myself but I have definitely enjoyed the green smoothie in the morning. We have a huge garden and I have been smoothing everything. Thanks again for all your hard work.

I am sitting over here dying over how beautiful the cookbook looks so far from the photos, and I cannot WAIT to get my hands on it once all is finished. You are such a huge inspiration to me as a new-ish food blogger and new-ish vegan… sometimes I start browsing your site and get lost in all of its amazing contents. Keep up the good work, and thank you for inspiring me always :) I will be forever grateful.

Xo,

Jordan

P.S. Happy Canadian New Year!

I’ve been debating leaving a comment for so long! Just wanted to let you know how thankful I am for your incredible vegan inspiration. I decided to begin a vegan lifestyle 6 months after finding this website. Without you, I would still be on an unhealthy path, getting sicker each day. These recipes have been everything to me, I make at least one of your beautiful dishes each week, you’ve been SUCH an amazing inspiration to me! So, thank you thank you thank you!!

Hello!
I’ve been reading your blog for about seven months and have really enjoyed adding vegan recipes to my family’s diet thanks to you!
I went on Amazon to order you cookbook today and I have to say I like the Canadian cover better than the US cover. Is there anyway to order that one?
Thanks for sharing your amazing talent!

Hi Angela,

I am struggling to find a vegan stuffing casserole for friendsgiving. .. Did you enjoy the butternut squash and Brussel one you mention here? Or have you found another that you enjoy?
I trust you most, but noticed you didn’t have your own! :)

Hey Paige, Awww you are so right I don’t have my own!! So sorry about that. I haven’t tried the butternut squash stuffing that is linked in the post yet…it seems to have a lot of comments though so I would try reading through those? I’ll have to get the wheels turning on my own stuffing. :)
