Get ready, here comes a bunch of thanksgiving friendly sugar & flour free recipes! Keep an eye on your inbox in the next few weeks because I’ve been busy in the kitchen to help you make your holidays bright!

This recipe is adapted from this one over at Vegangela. It only contains veggies, so you could make a big batch of this and weigh out however much you want toward your veggie serving. Fat is optional and can be added when serving.

I ate mine with Tofurkey sausage and corn to make a sort of “bangers and mash” situation, but this would excellent for Thanksgiving dinner also.
