Help with Vegan, Kosher Thanksgiving menu & products, please

Diane in Bexley | Nov 1, 2010 07:05 AM

In my quest to accommodate both the vegan and kosher eaters this year at Thanksgiving, I am seeking soy or vegetable based products to substitute for the chicken stock, milk, butter, sour cream and other things I normally put in mashed potatoes, vegetable casseroles, etc. for the holiday. I realize that I can't please everyone but I am trying. I have access to Whole Foods, TJs and Giant Eagle for products. Can someone please recommend brand names for these substitute products that are of highest quality? I also have to please "regular" eaters who are picky and don't want negative reviews from them. Our menu is attached, any comments would be helpful. I realize not everyone will eat everything, but trying to make sure everyone can eat SOMETHING. Thanks!

My menu is as follows:
1. Cosmopolitans with Raspberry Cordial
2. Screwdrivers
3. Wine

1. Hot artichoke/cheese dip with crackers
2. Guacamole dip with tortilla chips
3. Homemade cheese wafers
1. Spinach, red onion & clementine salad with lime vinaigrette dressing

1. Kosher turkey with celery/onion/mushroom cornbread stuffing
2. Mashed potatoes
3. Gravy
4. Apple/acorn squash casserole with cornflake crumbs
5. Green beans with almonds
6. Homemade rolls
7. Relish tray (marinated artichoke hearts, assorted olives, pickles)
8. Homemade cranberry relish with cognac
1. Cold poached pears with raspberry sauce
2. Apple pie with crumb topping
