Marilyn, when I was vegan I liked Earth Balance as a butter substitute. Nutritional yeast has a cheesy flavor and I would sprinkle it on everything. It has a lot of B vitamins.

I forgot to add--no soy is a requirement for the faux cheese and the margerine. Thanks

THis year I am making the vegan dish for Thanksgiving. I am planning a Savory Butternut squash Pie with Hazelnuts--I need to find vegan margarine and "parmesean" cheese.
Any suggestions?

I make a lentil loaf with mushroom gravy for my main dish. My carnivorous friends really like it, too!

I always make stuffed portobello mushrooms as my main dish (been a vegetarian for 17 years, though I guess now a pesce-tarian, just started eating fish again). Make the stuffing with chopped mushrooms, carrots, celery, rice and maybe cheese and veggie broth. I always put a little curry powder or marsala in the mix too. Clean portobellos, brush with a little oil and salt/pepper, and stuff. Bake at about 425 for 20 minutes. Very meaty and filling!
