Celebration Roast or Tofu Roast, drowning in chick pea gravy!!

Carla said...

Roasted Mixed Root Vegetables - sometimes plain with just salt and pepper, sometimes jazzed up with a little mustard or maple syrup or spices. Letovers make a fantastic base for a soup too!!

Probably homemade cranberry sauce. Yum!

Amber said...

My all time favorite is mashed potatoes with coconut milk, garlic and shiitake mushrooms. They're so good, you don't need gravy!

Jess said...

Mashed potatoes smushed together with carrots and cranberry sauce on my plate- yum!

Stephanie said...

I'd have to say I love making an entire Tofurky roast with friends although when I'm home with omnivore family members, no one will share with me :( So, I whip up a sweet poatato~turnip~carrot mash with maple syrup, a cranberry citrus relish and brussel sprouts with a balsamic reduction. Plus of course, vegan gingersnaps and my new found creation, chocolate cinnamon shortbread, all veganized versions of my grandmother's cookie recipes. My first vegan cookbook ever was Vegan Planet; I've gifted many a copy over the years and still default to it for the best ever shepherd's pie. Love her work!

Every year we visit the in-laws for the holidays and my mother in law always makes the best veggie chow mein ever. May not be traditional holiday food for most, but for me there's nothing better.

My all-time favorite casserole of any kind. And of course, mashed potatoes! They really makes my Christmas complete.

Aleesha said...

My dad's baked beans. He cooks them slowly on our wood stove with molasses, brown sugar, hot pepper flakes, and lots of onions and green peppers. Sometimes I make vegan sausages and we add those, too - either way, delicious!

Garlic mashed potatoes with Earth Balance, and an apple pie with Soy Too whipped cream - Yum!!!

Josiane said...

My favorite holiday dish used to be my mom's chicken pot pie, and this year I wanted to try making something similar with seitan. Well, no later than this morning, mom told me she wanted to cook some vegan stuff with me for the holidays. That means that my new favorite holiday dish will be my mom's brand new seitan pot pie! Yay!

Trista Hill said...

I know it's not a dish, but I really love the holiday cookies.

The Ordinary Vegetarian said...

A holiday meal isn't complete without a brussels sprout dish for me!! thanks for the sweet giveaway

Sweet potatoes! Now that I don't cover them with butter and marshmallows, I love them even more :)

Lebkuchen said...

V'Con's butternut squash-chestnuts-caramelized onions dish - it is SOOOOO goooood!!

It's a dish called "White Trash" or "Puppy Chow". I only make it for christmas....A vegan "Chex" mix and nuts stirred with melted peanut butter and dark chocolate, and then shaken up with powdered sugar! Yum!

Stuffing - with bread, onion, celery, and all the seasonings. More mushy than dry!

I really love sweet potato baked cassorole with rum in it and a cinnamon, orange-infused, streusel topping. I like to serve it with something savory like mushrooms sauteed with spinach, garlic, and onions.
