This is a delicious vegetarian gravy!

Zucchini with Chickpea and Mushroom Stuffing

Rating: 4.18 stars
A great vegetable dish that can be used as a centerpiece or as a side. Can be lovely when served with tomato based sauce and a green vegetable, or I have even had them with traditional roasted vegetables at Christmas.

Super Moist Pumpkin Bread

Rating: 4.58 stars
This is an incredible bread. Its moistness comes from the addition of an unusual ingredient: coconut milk! Originally submitted to

Roasted Pumpkins

Rating: 4.56 stars
These mini pumpkins are filled with applesauce then oven roasted - great for the holidays. If you are not a pumpkin fan, you can also roast squash the same way. Serve with your holiday meal.

Vegan Gravy

Rating: 4.71 stars
This is a creamy and thick vegan brown gravy which is excellent with the vegan 'meat' loaf, vegan mashed potatoes, or vegan biscuits. This gravy is so yummy, any meat-eater would enjoy it.

Tofu Turkey II

Rating: 3.8 stars
This is an incredibly delicious and guilt-free alternative to the traditional bird, and I make it every holiday. I've even tried this out on meat eaters, and they were asking for seconds! The directions may seem a bit daunting at first glance, but don't worry!! It is much, much easier than it appears and the actual preparation time you spend in the kitchen is under fifteen minutes.
