Kim O’Donnel knows meat eaters. In fact, she is one. As a voice for the Meatless Monday campaign, she’s been cooking up delicious you-won’t-miss-the-meat fare for the vegetarian-curious-but-vegan’s-too-crazy crowd. With a focus on holidays (or any celebration), the versatile recipes found in The Meat Lover’s Meatless Celebrations (Da Capo Books, 2012) ensure that eaters of all dietary stripes will leave the table satisfied. Cast aside those fears of cardboard tofurkey and gray starches. Instead, revel in dishes that inspire, surprise, and are so tasty, “meatless” is an afterthought (with allergy- and animal-free options, to boot). The excerpt below comes from the section, “Fall: Thanksgiving.”

Procrastinators take note: This one is for you. Here’s a fun alternative to pumpkin pie that takes all of 15 minutes to put together. While the pudding chills, you can make a batch of molasses cookies, which can be baked in small, last-minute slice-and-bake fashion. FYI: The pudding is vegan (although no one will be able to tell), but the cookies are not.

Pumpkin Pudding Recipe

1 (12-ounce) package firm silken tofu, preferably organic or non-GMO
1 (15-ounce) can unsweetened pure pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 to 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Tools: Food processor or stand blender

Kitchen Notes: For some, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon will be plenty, but I added the option of even more for those who are nostalgic for lots of cinnamon with their pumpkin puree.
