Simple Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner

Around Thanksgiving there is so much to do. Catch up with friends, hang with family, eat cookies, and the last thing I want to do is spend hours in the kitchen. Never fear friends, I have a meal recipe for you that doesn't involve highly processed and salty Tofurky, and you can whip it up in under an hour! How-to video is below.

CARROTS:
2 medium carrots, chopped and boiled
1 tsp vegan butter
1/4 tsp ginger
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp orange juice

POTATOES
4 medium potatoes, chopped and boiled
1 tbsp vegan sour cream (optional)
1 tbsp vegan cream cheese (optional)
black pepper
salt to taste

CRISPY TOFU CUTLETS:
tofu, sliced as thick as you like
3 tbsp flour
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
black pepper
pinch of dried sage

COOKIES:
3 tbsp pumpkin puree (or similar substitute)
3 tbsp softened vegan butter or coconut oil
1/4 cup almond butter
