Trying To Be Greener

Safer eco-living, one day at a time

A Vegetarian Thanksgiving November 11, 2010

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It takes place during a time of year and I love it’s a day when most Americans celebrate together. Even though it’s been 18 years since I’ve dined on the main course of turkey, it hasn’t diminished my 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 Butter

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 meat or meat stock in stuffing or bacon on vegetables.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
