Happy (almost) Thanksgiving!
I love Thanksgiving. First of all, it is one of the few huge family gatherings and meals that is not a Jewish holiday (read: we can actually document the occasion with pictures). Second, the football. I love a day that is so based on football schedules. Third, and most importantly, the food.
Oh, Thanksgiving food. It’s just so wonderful and autumnal. It’s also one of the most vegetarian and vegan friendly holidays there is. I mean, other than the turkey, the rest of the traditional Thanksgiving dishes are generally already vegetarian and/or vegan, or at least easily converted.
If you’re having some vegans or vegetarians over and you’re at a total loss of what to feed them, here are some suggestions (and pretty much what my Thanksgiving would look like if I were hosting):
Curried Butternut Squash Soup (the recipe is phenomenal, the pictures are from a time before I understood things like lighting)
