OR a rustic vegan stuffed maple acorn squash with maple pumpkin spice, wild rice, pecans and cranberries
For dessert, share some pecan pumpkin pie or a pumpkin coconut cream pie with diy coconut oil pie crust or make it a gluten-free, paleo vegan (pegan) Thanksgiving dessert with pumpkin coconut mousse topped with coconut whip and candied nuts (and don’t worry you can’t taste the coconut in any of these desserts except for the coconut whip on top. So these desserts have been approved by those who don’t like coconut too!)
