Whether it’s your first vegetarian Thanksgiving or you’re a meatless veteran, it’s always awkward to be the person at the table who can’t eat meat. Luckily, there are plenty of meat-free alternatives that will satisfy you on the big day. Whether you’re hosting or want to suggest a few alternatives as a guest, these are easy and delicious dishes for all vegetarians at the table.
Stuffing is the absolute best part of Thanksgiving, and since meat is only a small ingredient to the best stuffings, you won’t be missing anything at all here. Vegetarian stuffings also give you a chance to indulge in the season’s tastiest fruit and vegetables — apples, cranberries, pumpkin, apricots, etc. There is no wrong way to do stuffing, but there is a better way and we call that vegetarian, with SheKnows’ recipe.
Add a great side
Another popular side dish is ham, sausage or some other meat. Opt for a tasty vegetarian side dish instead that’s different from everything else on the table (so you don’t get bored). One of our favorite dishes is baked pumpkin mac and cheese — you’ll have the whole table wishing they were vegetarian too. Thanksgiving is all about comfort food, and nothing says comfort more than mac and cheese with a little homey fall twist.
