  • Sauteed green beans with toasted almonds (She Knows)
  • Roasted brussels sprouts (from Taryn)

Emily created our vegan zucchini turkey by hollowing out a giant zucchini, filling it with stuffing, and slowly baking it for 3 hours at 300 F.

It was just as creative as the the faux turkey Emily made on for our first Thanksgiving together, seven years ago.
