Got Thanksgiving jitters? Pick up the November issue of Satya magazine and check out the Post Punk Kitchen Guide to Thanksgiving. Chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz shares recipes for everything you need for a vegan holiday feast. What’s on the menu? Pear and Endive Salad with Maple Candied Pecans. Fresh Autumn Rice Paper Rolls with Butternut Squash. Porcini Wild Rice Soup. Pumpkin Seed Crusted Tofu with Baked Pumpkin and Cranberry Relish. Gingerbread Cupcakes with Lemony Buttercream Frosting (a recipe by both Isa and her PPK partner in crime, Terry Romero, with whom she co-authored the recently released Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.
Looking at this extensive menu makes me think I’d need to start cooking next Monday to have things ready in time for Thanksgiving–which in turn makes me just want to pull some slices of Tofurky cold cuts out of the fridge and onto a platter instead. Fortunately Isa has provided a very handy prep guide which helps you manage your time as the days, hours, and minutes until the big feast go by. (No more serving dinner in your pajamas!)
The November issue of Satya is also chock full of other Thanksgiving stories of interest, including a gorey, heartbreaking expose of “Thanksgiving’s Nasty Little Secret” balanced by a heartwarming tale of the charm possessed by turkeys at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary.
