What Do Vegetarians Eat on Thanksgiving?

What #vegetarians and #vegans eat on #Thanksgiving from teeny tiny foodie

I’ve been a vegetarian/sometimes pescatarian for around 20 years and Thanksgiving is always a challenge. For years, I quietly ate whatever side dishes were served and hoped they weren’t made with any broths, stocks or animal bits I didn’t want to know about. But somewhere along the way I realized that just because I wasn’t going to enjoy the traditionally served dead bird on this holiday, didn’t mean I had to limit myself to eating a ridiculous amount of white carbs and random vegetables that might be served. I decided that I could actually be proactive and start contributing to the spread and make food that I thought was delicious, mostly nutritious and satisfying to vegetarians and the meat eaters at the table.

I’d love to hear what other vegetarians, vegans and pescatarians make for this holiday. Please share your ideas in the comments section below or email me directly at [email protected]

Below is a growing list of vegetarian and vegan dishes that I like to contribute to the Thanksgiving table that are appropriate for babies, toddlers and grown ups.

Pumpkin Macaroni & Cheese (This year, I’ll be making this dish using Roasted Butternut Squash Purée instead of Pumpkin Purée)

Carrot and Parsnip Purée (This purée is so amazing that I make it for my family all the time as a side dish even though there are no purée-eating Little Foodies here anymore 😉 )
