Vegan, gluten free, and stuffed with veggie, this is a scone that can be enjoyed even after a massive Thanksgiving feast. Yes, it is orange, but it’s not pumpkin. So don’t roll your eyes at me ; it’s not another pumpkin recipe! We all know pumpkin everything is essential to Thanksgiving so let’s shed some light on other autumn ingredients. Sweet po-tay-toooohhh!
Canadian Thanksgiving was last month, but I know our fellow neighbours down south are counting down the days until their big holiday at the end of this month. My family Thanksgivings are never very extravagant, usually it’s just my family of four and my two grandparents. We feast on a funky fusion of classic Western dishes like turkey and brussel sprouts with a side of Chinese sticky rice. Odd mix, but all delicious because it’s mama’s cooking.
