If you are a vegetarian or vegan, the holiday season can be uncomfortable in terms of food. You sit around the table with your family as they all stare at your plate trying to figure out what you will eat.
This time around, you can have the opportunity of showing your family and friends how delicious plant-based food can be.
These are some of the plates that I plan on cooking for my Thanksgiving dinner with friends.
Roasted Squash with Red Onion, Oregano and Mint
Easy and so delicious, this warm appetizer will be loved by everyone at the table. It’s as easy as baking the squash and spicing it up. Enjoy.
Zucchini and Caramelized Onion Quiche
Delicious and filling. Works well as a side dish or even a main dish. This is the kind of dish where you can choose the vegetables you love the most. In my case, zucchini is the chosen one. I suggest squash, tomato or mushrooms. This is a yummy, easy and quick addition to the table.
Squash and Celeriac Quinoa Stuffing
Give your classic Thanksgiving stuffing a twist.
Replace the bread with quinoa, and treat yourself to a healthy stuffing. This is a great vegan approach to the stuffing, where you replace classic ingredients like chicken broth and eggs for butternut squash and celery root. This is healthy, full of protein and the quinoa will give great texture to the dish.
Whipped Coco Cream Tart with Fresh Berries (Vegan)
Delight yourself and your guests with this quick, easy tart. The berries are your choosing. This tart will look so gorgeous, you will be surprised!
Chocolate Pecan Pie (Vegan)
Some delicious vegan chocolate pie to end the meal. This pie won’t take you longer than half an hour to make, and you will thank yourself you did.
