Make your vegetables the highlight of the appetizer table with this bread cornucopia filled with vibrant vegetables.

For the first time in 20 years, I am making an all vegan Thanksgiving dinner. Usually, I make two dinners; one to accommodate the carnivores of the family and a completely separate dinner for us vegans. Over time, more and more family members have changed their eating. Although my mother and I have attempted to get may sister, nephew and niece on board, we have yet to convince them that this way of loving is a much healthier lifestyle. This year, though, my sister is coming to dinner but her children are going to their father’s side of the family. When she said, “don’t make me anything special; I will eat what you guys eat,” I almost fell off the floor. Although some people might not take this as a win, I do.

My older sister eats the exact opposite way my mother and my family have chosen to eat. We grew up in the same house, and we both watched our mother suffer the ramifications of a horrible disease. She also watched our mother transform her life through a plant-based diet, yet my sister chooses to eat a standard american diet. But this year, she will eat what we eat, and for me, that is a HUGE event. Maybe; just maybe, this will be the year.

This is just a simple and festive way to present your vegetable tray. Although edible, it is more for show than anything. I figure I should make the vegetables I love, look better to those who don’t share my appreciation for such beautiful, vibrant vegetables.

I love making this cornucopia with my daughter. Each year, we laugh and try something different to make it more festive.

Aluminium Foil Cornucopia Mold

Using aluminum foil, create a mold of a cornucopia. The size will depend on how big you want the cornucopia. 2 packages of dough makes 1 medium cornucopia.
Using cooking spray, spray the aluminum foil. Put mold on a silicone baking sheet or parchment paper while assembling with dough.



Cut the dough into strips, wrapping each strip around the mold.
Each strop of dough should overlap the other until it reaches the end.
Leave the opening large enough at the end.
Baked for 30 minutes or until brown.
It must COOL COMPLETELY before removing the aluminum foil.
Once cool, carefully remove the aluminum foil by squeezing the foil together in the middle, making it smaller, and carefully pulling the foil out the opening.
Fill with vegetables.
