SFL RecipesIn my quest for plant based holiday recipes, 40 Vegetarian Main Dishes for Thanksgiving was another exciting find. In my search, I’m finding healthy vegetarian recipes and recipes loaded with dairy, fat and sugar. You’ll have to decide what’s right for you, but we’ve been successful at an using rice milk for cow’s milk, cutting back on the amount of sugar and using little to no oil. So far, egg replacer has worked as a substitute for eggs. And, our meals taste delicious! 40 Vegetarian Main Dishes for Thanksgiving are this weeks featured recipes in the Slender For Life™ Recipe Library.

40 Vegetarian Main Dishes for Thanksgiving

Oh My Veggies: Being a vegetarian can be a little bit awkward on a holiday often referred to as Turkey Day. Judging by all the “What do you eat on Thanksgiving?!” questions I get, a lot of people seem to think it’s impossible to celebrate the holiday without a plateful of turkey. (Really, it is possible!)

Make Vegetarian-Friendly Sides

Most vegetarians are happy just eating sides on Thanksgiving. But make sure they’re vegetarian! Stuffing cooked in a turkey or gravy made with drippings don’t count.

Ask What Your Guest Will Eat

I know people who consider themselves vegetarians and eat poultry and fish. Others don’t eat meat, but will eat broth, gelatin, shortening, etc. Because so many people define vegetarianism in so many different ways, the best thing you can do is be clear on what your guest can and cannot eat before you make any meal plans.

Have Your Guest Bring a Dish
This is probably the easiest solution!

While there are a few vegetarian faux turkey options out there, I much prefer a homemade main dish made with real ingredients. If my Savory Pumpkin Galette and Quinoa-Stuffed Acorn Squash Rings aren’t your thing, here are 40 more vegetarian main dishes for Thanksgiving.
