With the holiday season fast upon uswe, as conscious beings, want to participate in the festivities and merry-making and yet, trying to imitate long-held food traditions, albeit vegan-style can feel, well, a little regressive in light of everything we now know.

I have nothing against Tofurkey or Gardein or various seitan roasts. And of course theres the Festival of Sides as I like to call it. The best of parade of veggies, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy and breads I have prepared and proudly brought to table over the years.

But, if you want to try something really courageous, really unconventional how about a theme menu? One that breaks the rules completely?

*Here are a few of my favorite vegan menus for alternative holiday (or anyday) celebrating:
