Holidays are so founded on family traditions that it can be difficult when you are transitioning from meat and/or dairy to plant-based. My first suggestion for those who are on the journey at this time–use the seasonings that your family is used to and it will help a lot. If for this “feast” someone is joining you who isn’t that interested in healthful living, leave a little room on your table or sideboard for an added dish that they might want to bring along to satisfy their cravings. Family time is all about loving one another, even in our differences.
Hopefully this recipe will bring some joy to your holiday and keep your health in tact at the same time. The blended nuts serve to replace the fat that usually adds to the “after dinner blahs” and clogged arteries. Don’t be put off by the long list of ingredients as most of them are just seasonings, nothing hard about that!
