Vegan Italian Sausage Chunky Minestrone made with Tofurky Italian Sausage
Every year around this time there is a excitement that hits The Shannon homestead. We wake up every chilly morning looking forward to dinner. We go to bed looking forward to leftovers for lunch the next day. The leaves begin to change on Brooklyn and we get out our cotton and acrylic sweaters and the whole time we look forward to pre-heating that oven. See folks - It's Tofurky season!
Now usually we make like 3 or 4 holiday roasts around this time of year to test recipes and because they're awesome but this year Hurricane Sandy hit NYC. After spending a small fortune on subway trips around the city, we haven't been able to find a single holiday roast. Now maybe it's all the shipments being messed up but I'd like to think it's because of the increase in people exploring a meat-free lifestyle. Either way - the bad news is that we don't have a tested recipe to share today but the show must go on! So in the spirit of just going with it - today we're launching our 2nd Annual Thanksgiving Contest! Well this year it's more a vegan all-star contest. You know it's like The Love Boat. All these celebrities in one spot having adventures and stuff. Yes,we're a little late this year but we're giving away a prize pack featuring some of our favorite vegan products that we hope will make up for it!
- 1 Coupon for one free package of Tofurky Deli Slices, Tempeh OR Sausages
- 1 Coupon for one free package of a Gardein product of your choice
- 1 Coupon for one free package of a Earth Balance product of your choice
- Discount Coupons for Amy's, Sweet & Sara Vegan Marshmallows and more Tofurky
- 1 Vegan Marshmallow Variety Pack from Sweet & Sara
Last year, we asked you to leave a comment below telling us what Vegan Thanksgiving tradition or dish you're the most looking forward to but this year - we'll keep it simple. All you have to do is leave a comment below with link to a cute Autumn themed animal picture - like a kitty playing in leaves, a bulldog in a pumpkin or a Llama in a scarf - and we'll randomly choose ONE MEMBER from the comments below to win!
So start up your search engines and let's set our course for adventure!*

Ahhh it was super hard choosing just one!! Soo many cute critters out there. I ended up choosing this one b/c I used to enjoy playing in the fall leaves when I was little (and secretly still do) and this photo literally made me LOL:ReplyDelete
By the way, I really enjoyed this contest. It's not your typical run of the mill contest, it gets people into the fall spirit, and it made me happy looking at all the adorable & hilarious photos that are out there! Reminds us once again how amazing animals really are!!!ReplyDelete
This fawn is so adorable - couldn't resist!
I saved this photo on my phone a few weeks ago and look at it when I need to smile!

Also, I just got an email today about Native Foods shipping their holiday roast, I'd love to see a review of it.
I may have missed the giveaway, but I still wanted to leave this photo of grumpy cat in the great outdoors. http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/c53.0.403.403/p403x403/374802_10152190499640268_1524827756_n.jpgReplyDelete
