The thought of a vegetarian Thanksgiving may make some people’s skin crawl. After all, the entire day is centered around gobbling up a juicy turkey. Nonetheless, chances are someone coming to your Thanksgiving celebration is not a meat eater OR you’re looking for some ways to get more veggies in the mix. If that’s the case, here are seven recipes you can whip up to satisfy plant-eaters and meat-eaters alike.
Honey Roasted Carrots with Goat Cheese and Pomegranates
Add some color to the mix with this refreshing and healthy side. And to make your life easier buy seeds that have already been removed from the shell of a pomegranate. It might mean spending a few extra bucks, but it’s money well spent. Recipe here.
Creamy Leeks in Puff Pastry Cups
Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts
Brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes are fall food staples and will be an easy addition to your spread. Recipe here.
Sweet Potato Goat Cheese Bites
Maybe you bought way too many sweet potatoes (hey, it happens). If that’s the case, this is another awesome appetizer idea, that’s light enough not to fill anyone up. Recipe here.
Vegetarian Herbed Stuffing
Stuffing is a Thanksgiving staple, but it’s often loaded with parts of the Turkey or some other meat. Create a vegetarian friendly option instead that everyone can enjoy. Recipe here.
Curried Root Vegetable Soup
Look at this creamy goodness! This soup will warm your guests up and possibly leave them wanting seconds. Recipe here.
It might seem silly to have vegetarian gravy if it’s just going to go on top of a fat turkey, but gravy is a comfort condiment that everyone should be able to enjoy and add to their mashed potatoes or rice. You know your plate ends up being one big mess of food anyway. Recipe here.
