Vegan Meatballs, Mashed Potatoes and Mushroom Gravy

Of course, if you’re having vegan turkey, gravy is a must. Gravy also goes hand-in-hand with mashed potatoes. This vegan recipe from Naturally Zuzu  adds a new spin on classic mashed potatoes and gravy by adding vegan meatballs made from mushrooms and lentils and a mushroom-based gravy. It’s a tasty triple threat for sure!


Vegan Scalloped Potatoes
