Vegetarian Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is The Green Mommy’s favorite holiday. It takes place during her favorite time of year and she loves that it’s a day when most Americans celebrate together. Even though it’s been 18 years since she’s dined on the main course of turkey, it hasn’t diminished her love for the holiday’s cuisine.

Do you plan on having a vegetarian guest this Thanksgiving? Interested in trying something new? You could always go with a Tofurky with vegetarian gravy, but here are some other worthy creations that would satisfy both meat eaters and vegetarians!

Roasted Acorn Squash with Wild Rice Stuffing
Four Cheese Lasagna
Butternut Squash Raviolo with Gorgonzola and Walnut Cream
Citrusy Root Vegetable Puree
Cauliflower with hazelnut Brown ButterGreen Tossed Salads, Fruit, Raw Vegetables, Fruit Pies and Soups are also great dishes to serve your guests.   Enviro Girl kicked tradition years ago with her carnivorous family and brought a huge tossed salad that became an annual request.  Even the most voracious meat-eaters enjoy their greens if they’re prepared in a tasty, savory way.

If you really want your vegetarian guest to be able to enjoy everything you offer this holiday, remember to watch for meat ingredients that sometimes are added to side dishes, such as lard, meat or meat stock in stuffing or bacon on vegetables.

  1. Thanks for all the great recipes. I’m a Tofurkey girl myself but the other recipes would make a nice addition to our meal. Looks delicious!

  2. Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays for a vegetarian since there are so many non-meat side dishes that one can rely on, even if rest of the guests are munching on turkey. These are great ideas!
