Re: Vegetarian alternatives for Thanksgiving in a foriegn country

My favorite thing for a vegetarian thanksgiving is a cheese and nut loaf - http://www.tastebook.com/recipes/608...e-and-Nut-Loaf - delicious!! Kind of like a meatloaf but with much better flavor, and it's enough work that it's a "festive" kind of dish that you'll really only make for a holiday. Even meat-eaters like it!

Re: Vegetarian alternatives for Thanksgiving in a foriegn country

I wanted to come back and say thank you!! Leah I used that stuffing recipe and it turned out great. I chose to go with a recipe I found with different mushrooms (****ake, oyster and portabella) in a cream sauce, with goat cheese, stuffed in filo dough for a main, it turned out well. I also made grilled asparagus, and roasted garlic and goat cheese mashed potatoes. For dessert I did Apple and Pumpkin pies. But I made chow mein for the kids, . On the whole I think everything turned out well and everyone seemed to eat everything and even go back for 2nds and even 3rds Thanks again!

Ok I think this will be our main dish for Thanksgiving. I told myself I wasn't going to do a big thing for TG but this just looks really good. It has a stuffing recipe that doesn't look disgusting to me as well (plus gluten free which is great).

I will still be doing mashed purple potatoes and pumpkin pie. Mine has to be vegan (Tharen and I are both dairy free) and gluten free (cause I don't want to be absolutely miserable) but I love this recipe. http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/201...s-pumpkin-pie/ This is quite frankly the best pumpkin pie I've ever had and super simple to make. She has a really great no bake chocolate pumpkin pie too, but it tastes more like chocolate than pumpkin. I saw a new pumpkin pie recipe on her page but as I have not tried it yet I cannot vouch for how it tastes or turns out.

I think I may try to make some home made gravy for the potatoes. I made one with a vegan "shepherds pie" the other day and while dh and I agreed the whole dish was missing something (I'm thinking I may try it again with TVP or beans instead of tofu as much as I love tofu it tends to suck up flavoring) the gravy was really good and really simple.
I've had a shepards pie with tvp before and it was really good, I've never had a shepards pie before so I'm not sure what its supposed to taste like but I liked this version.

Re: Vegetarian alternatives for Thanksgiving in a foriegn country

I like doing fall food for thanksgiving and I'm vegetarian but also do not do meat substitutes hardly ever. Our farmers market does a holiday market close to thanksgiving and l like to try and do everything from there...roasted sweet potatoes, winter squashes, green vegetable like Brussel sprouts or kale or broccoli, mashed potatoes, cauliflower, good bread. I'm a vegetarian that loves vegetables so I just make a whole bunch of veggie dishes. I also like the traditional thanksgiving stuff too tho like green bean casserole, stuffing, cranberry sauce (always homemade it's so easy and quick I don't know why anyone would buy it canned yuck!) sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, cheesy cauliflower. It depends if I'm wanting healthier and more creative stuff or comfort food.
