Let the turkeys and other animals be as happy as your guests by including these recipes in your Thanksgiving dinner. All these recipes are plant-powered, with no meat, fish, eggs, or dairy.
Serve delicious Chickpea Triangles in place of turkey for a vegetarian or vegan Thanksgiving. Omnivores will want to have both. These savory wedges say "main-dish protein" without resorting to faux meat charades.
Stuffed kabocha or acorn squash is one of my favorite holiday main courses. A winter squash makes a lovely centerpiece, too, while waiting to be cooked. Also see my book Wildly Affordable Organic for acorn squash stuffed with black beans and Persian tomato sauce.
Mashed potatoes and gravy can be creamy and rich without loads of calories. Feel free to have seconds!
