Meatless Thanksgiving Ideas

If you're planning a vegetarian Thanksgiving dish (or multiple vegetarian Thanksgiving dishes), both the Times and Food52 have ideas for you, and pictures. If you can only pick one, go to Food52 for the pictures, pictures of food. Leek and greens tart, pear and smoked gouda dutch baby. Butternut squash and roasted garlic gallette. Okay, onward.

Ooh, this is me! Looking forward to checking out all the recipes. Last year I made this vegetarian meat loaf thing-- which maybe sounds kind of weird, but it was super excellent, and even my non-veg family members loved it. (Plus, I couldn't take another year of that packaged tofurkey nonsense they sell at my grocery store.)

@KatieBarTheDoor I'm thinking about making a vegetarian meat loaf this year. What was in yours?

KatieBarTheDoor

@Priscilla Peel I don't have the recipe with me, so I don't remember... I know it had oats, and I want to say lentils and/or tofu as the base? And some vegetables and maybe pecans? This is totally unhelpful, so I can email you or post here when I find the recipe, if you're interested.

@KatieBarTheDoor Mushroom loaf!!!! Also, mashed sweet potatoes, topped with pecans and a brown sugar-vegan margarine topping, then baked. Roasted beet salad. Roasted root vegatables of any kind! Pottage, or a nice quinoa pilaf! I never missed the turkey as Thanksgiving, personally, after 17 years of being vegetarian.

KatieBarTheDoor

@swirrlygrrl I never miss turkey either! Even back when I ate it, Thanksgiving was always all about the sides for me. What is pottage?

Priscilla Peel

@KatieBarTheDoor @swirrlygrrl Lentil loaf and mushroom loaf both sound delicious!

@KatieBarTheDoor i use the recipe from skinny bitch in the kitch. i portion it into muffin tins to bake it, and then i pipe mashed potatoes (cooled) on top for little vegan meatlaof cupcake things. they always go over well, even with meat eaters!!

Is It a Hat?

I really don't mind being a vegetarian on Thanksgiving, as it gives me an excuse to eat my weight in mashed potatoes...but OOOOH MAN I wish I could eat every single thing in that Food52 link.

@Is It a Hat? When I would go home for Thanksgiving my aunt (who hosted) always asked if I wanted any special dish. I would always reply that I was completely content to just eat mashed potatoes.

@Is It a Hat? My only request is usually a mushroom gravy to slather all over everything on my plate/eat with a spoon. Mmmmm mushroom gravy.

@Is It a Hat? Mashed potatoes is not a side for me on Thanksgiving. It is the MAIN DISH. But the Mushroom Bourguignon and the stuffing from the Food52 thing? *faints*

My plan is just to make the spinach quiche casserole previously posted here: http://thehairpin.com/2012/03/the-boise-family-spinach-quiche-casserole

I'll probably mix in some egg noodles, though.

Alton Brown' lentil soup is my go-to main dish for Thanksgiving. It's amazing, and so good to combine with mashed potatoes!

Spinach-artichoke casserole in a bread bowl, and stuffed acorn squash. Who needs meat? (I mean, I eat meat, but both of those things are totes amazing and just HAPPEN to be vegetarian, which I feel like is the best kind of vegetarian food.)

swirrlygrrl

@par_parenthese Yes! Stuffed acorn squash! With granny smith apples, pecans, raisins and craisins, cinnamon and nutmeg and vegan marg and brown sugar!!!

par_parenthese

@swirrlygrrl I do a savory stuffed acorn squash as a main! It's deliiiiish.

This reminds me of the time my vegetarian cousin ate the collard greens my other cousin's boyfriend's mom made, because, greens! She was not pleased to learn there was ham involved.

baked bean

@meetapossum Yeah in traditional southern fare, meat is in every vegetable dish!

coolallison

@baked bean My first Thanksgiving as a vegetarian, my family in west Texas gave me the impression that they would have several items sans meat... but every single thing had something meaty in it. Bacon bits in the green beans and salad, chicken stock stuffing, etc. I think I had mashed potatoes without gravy and like a cheese sandwich. I've since learned to make some things of my own.

baked bean

@coolallison Yeah it's amazing how older people just don't get it sometimes. My friend in high school ran into that stuff. People would try to tell her just to pick around the bacon or something.

My sister got us tickets to ThanksLIVING in Tempe, this is going to be awesome I am so excited!

Man, that food 52 thing makes me WISH I was vegetarian right now. I don't even care for turkey that much. Those things all look sooooo delicious. I might be a vegetarian as an excuse to make one or two of those for Thanksgiving.

Tramadol is a common pharmaceutical drug available throughout the world. Traditionally, Tramadol has been bought at the local drugstore and local pharmacies with a doctor's prescription. But as the use of online commerce grows, more and more people are turning to the internet to buy tramadol and make other pharmaceutical purchases. This has many benefits namely significant costs savings to customers who save money on prescriptions medication combined with the ease of online ordering.
