A Preview of Mayim Bialik's Vegan Thanksgivukkah
This year, the first night of Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving, thus making it: Thanksgivukkah! Mayim Bialik shared a sneak peek of her holiday menu on Kveller.com and it looks fantastic!
Bialik gives the menu credit to her mother, whom she says is a great cook. “My mother specializes in all kinds of food but her presentation, her attention to detail, and the joy with which she cooks and serves food are also noteworthy,” she says. Here’s the menu breakdown:
Drinks: Hot and cold “apple drink” (which Bialik speculates means hot apple cider and cold apple juice)
Appetizers: Mini raw veggies with vegan onion dip, mock chopped liver, and Endive Spears with Cranberries, Nuts, Vegan Blue Cheese, and Fresh Pears.
Soups: Vegan “chicken” soup, Pumpkin Squash Kreplach (a dumpling soup), and alphabet-noodle soup. (Or as Bialik’s mom worded it: “Alphabet Letters Floating in the Soup.”)
Entrees: The main course will feature a couple different Gardein products with standard dressings of fresh cranberry sauce, canned cranberry sauce, and gravy.
Sides: Brussels sprouts, “Mike’s Great-Grandmother’s Louisiana Cornbread Stuffing” (a recipe that will be in Bialik’s upcoming book, “Mayim’s Vegan Table”), and lots of latkes.
Dessert: Fruit, “chocolate holiday candies,” and Sufganiyot (Hanukkah jelly donuts).
Wow! Who wishes they were invited to this feast?! To read more of the details (and Bialik’s commentary on the menu items), check out the rest of her post on Kveller.com.
