Your Guide To A Vegetarian-Friendly Thanksgiving

Although I am no longer a vegan, I certainly remember how it felt to participate in meat-centered holiday meals with friends and family when I didn’t eat meat.  When the standard image of Thanksgiving food is a turkey, planning a vegetarian Thanksgiving menu can be tough.  

It’s not impossible to have a real food vegetarian Thanksgiving if you plan ahead.  In the end, a meatless Thanksgiving looks more like a collection of typical Thanksgiving side dishes.  There is no single main dish like there is with a turkey, but there is no shortage of delicious, filling dishes to make your Thanksgiving tasty and comforting.

Here are a few of my favorite vegetarian Thanksgiving side dishes

Quinoa Stuffed Roasted Acorn Squash

Butternut Squash Soup

Sweet Potato Frittata

Quick and Easy Potato Puffs
