It’s that time of year when we gather around the table with family and friends. If a vegetarian is coming to your holiday dinner, don’t stress! There are plenty of easy and tasty vegetarian recipes to make and share. Here are a few of my favorite vegetarian and vegan Thanksgiving recipes.
Kentucky Mule Bourbon Drink
A no fuss, crowd-pleasing drink made with bourbon whiskey, ginger beer and fresh lime.
Very Good Gin and Tonic (VGG and T!)
Meyer lemon, pomegranate arils and better-than-basic tonic and gin make this simple drink very good.
Harissa Sweet Potato Hummus
Chickpea hummus with roasted sweet potato, harissa and tahini.
Salads and Soup
Beet and Apple Salad
Arugula leaves topped with roasted beets, apple and hazelnuts.
Kale and Quinoa Salad
Tuscan kale, quinoa, sunflower seeds and pomegranate arils in a Meyer lemon dressing.
Fresh Pumpkin Soup
A rich, velvety soup made with fresh pumpkin, ras el hanout Moroccan seasoning and coconut milk.
Vegan Stuffed Peppers
Forget tofu turkey! Vegan stuffed peppers make a delicious main dish or vegetable side. These beauties are filled with rice, greens and mushrooms in a light tamari-chile sauce.
Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Squash
A simple mix of Brussels sprouts and delicata squash, roasted until tender and browned.
Easy Vegan Apple Crisp
A vegan dessert that everyone will love! Tender spiced apples with a crispy, crumbly topping made with oats, almond flour, brown sugar and coconut oil.
Simple Pumpkin Pie
Pumpkin pie is my get-way-too-much-credit-because-it’s-actually-super-easy-to-make dessert. Enough said.
