American Thanksgiving dinner, with its traditional turkey as the main course, can be difficult for vegetarians. Here are some ideas to mix and match for your vegetarian Thanksgiving menu.
Marinating and baking tofu is one of the easiest, most delicious ways to enjoy this versatile food.
A delicious, fluffy cultured cashew paste that can be turned into various vegan cheeses or used in place of sour cream.
Incredibly flavorful meatloaf-style dish made with mushrooms, rice, and lentils.
Simple but stunning: roasted zucchini slices wrapped around herbed ricotta and served on a pool of warm tomato sauce.
A vegetarian “tuna” salad made with chickpeas, almonds, and seeds. While this doesn’t taste exactly like tuna salad, it’s close enough that I don’t miss the real thing any more.
Light, fluffy, and peanut buttery!
Pumpkins are a key ingredient in some wonderful recipes, notably pumpkin pie and pumpkin soup – not to mention jack-o’lanterns – but what can you do with the seeds? Roast ’em!
Sure, you can buy canned pumpkin, but it’s cheaper, healthier, and tastier to make your own pumpkin purée. All you need is a nice pumpkin (smaller is better), a few common kitchen tools, and some time.
A typical Mediterranean dip, made mostly of olives and olive oil. Traditional recipes include anchovies, but there is absolutely no need for them here.
Try this pasta with a unique, creamy sweet-and-savory sauce.
