As a vegan and someone who lives in rez, Thanksgiving requires a bit of creativity. This year, that meant focusing on the trimmings (or the fixings). I have prepared everything early (which is what you have to do when your only appliances are a 6 slice countertop oven and a 4 cup rice cooker). Here are the details! Happy Thanksgiving!
First, roasted smashed potatoes:

I will admit that at this point they were SO good that I debated just finishing them all and not even bothering smashing them. But I decided that I had to stick with my recipe!
Second, fresh cranberry sauce:
Then, the roasted asparagus.
The other veggies:
To steal Lidia’s expression: Tutti a tavola a mangiare!
Happy Thanksgiving! We all have so much to be thankful for. I know I was very thankful for my beautiful fresh fruits and vegetables and my ability to enjoy them.
