vegetarian ThanksgivingAttention Vegetarians and Vegans: You too can have an enjoyable, delicious Thanksgiving dinner without compromising your lifestyle!

There are plenty of websites out there that offer meatless Thanksgiving Day menus. Many of them have complete, 3- to 5-course menus that are appetizing even if you’re not a vegetarian.

The appetizers usually consist of a variety of salads and soups. An obvious choice would be the Pumpkin Soup. Many of the sites have this recipe, but I thought this recipe looked interesting because it calls for a little sour cream. And don’t worry, this soup uses vegetable broth, not chicken.

Pasta dishes and vegetarian gratin would be nice main dish selections, such as this recipe for Three Sister Stew, which features the Ancient Three Sisters: corn, squash and beans.

Dessert could really be anything, so pick your favorite and make it for the whole family! Pumpkin pie is a more traditional choice if you want to go the traditional route.

If you think about it, the only part of the Thanksgiving meal that traditionally features meat is the turkey. And with tofu turkey and other main-course selections, a vegetarian Thanksgiving meal doesn’t have to be that different from the original.

I've had luck contributing a lentil loaf (see Recipe Zaar) to "mixed company" holiday meals. Tofurky is pretty tasty over a campfire, too. Vegan Thanksgiving has its advantages, including the chance to ditch rotund omni eaters in their insulin shock to go climb a mountain post-meal. All hail Dal bhat!
