On this #SaturdaySnackdown, Erin Riley-Carrasco PETA’s Sexiest Vegan Over 50, makes a delicious CRUELTY-FREE Thanksgiving meal of cauliflower mashed potatoes, vegan turkey roast, and cranberry sauce. Make this coming holiday a “ThanksLIVING” celebration and keep animals off your plate!



Did you know that cauliflower mashed potatoes taste just like mashed potatoes but have 53 calories and 13 grams fewer carbohydrates per 1/2 cup than potatoes? Erin always makes both for Thanksgiving. On this episode of #SaturdaySnackdown, Erin made a quick and easy recipe for garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes and paired it with my favorite Gardein Holiday Roast (better than turkey and cruelty-free!) stuffed with wild rice and cranberries. The cauliflower mashed potatoes are absolutely delicious; add some vegan gravy on too! Get your Gardein Roasts now as they always sell out! Make this holiday a ThanksLIVING one and keep animals off your plate. Enjoy! #veganthanksgiving #anythingyoucanmakeicanmakevegan #quickandeasyveganrecipes #veganholidayrecipes #plantbasedcooking #govegan #cauliflowermashedpotatoes #gardein #miyokos #plantbasedthanksgiving #saturdaysnackdown #janeunchained




2 heads of cauliflower (steamed)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
1/4 cup vegan sour cream
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Optional: add a small amount of unsweetened Soy milk if you desire a creamier consistency
Miyoko’s vegan butter
salt and pepper to taste
Wash, cut off leaves and break up cauliflower into florets. Place into a steamer basket and steam cauliflower in a pot with water on the stove and cook until it’s tender. (To check if it’s tender, try piercing the thickest part of the cauliflower with a fork.) Drain and let cool off for a bit. Then place steamed florets into a food processor and combine with minced garlic, vegan sour cream, garlic salt and a splash of unsweetened soy milk if needed. Blend until desired consistency. I like mine with lumps in it, as it looks and tastes similar to mashed potatoes.

Compassionate roast!


Full Thanksgiving meal with no cruelty!
