Anybody have any new vegetarian Thanksgiving side dishes?

Asked by Kardamom (28357points) 3 weeks ago

On an earlier Q, I asked about mixing things up for Thanksgiving, which I like to do, but I was wondering if you guys had any good vegetarian side dishes that you like to fix, or that you had at someone else’s house, before, or that you have read about, or have seen on TV.

I have a huge collection of recipes, but I’m always on the lookout for new ones (or old ones from other people’s collections).

My definition of vegetarian for this question is: no meat, fish, or fowl, but eggs and dairy are OK.

Extra points for yummy vegan Thanksgiving recipes.

Every side dish I make for thanksgiving is vegetarian. I never think to make anything “new” since the meal is all about tradition for me.

I’ll be following to see the answers though.

Except to say when my parents are here I make baked sweet potato. I never make that otherwise.

This recipe is heavenly: https://www.washingtonpost.com/recipes/ginger-glazed-baby-cut-carrots-with-cranberries/13048/?utm_term=.bc8c13276a8a

I make it vegan by substituting olive oil for the butter and vegetable broth for chicken stock. The ginger and cranberries have strong flavors, so neither non-vegan ingredient is needed.

I recommend cutting the carrots into smaller pieces. If you simply dump baby carrots pieces from a bag into a pan, they’ll take forever to cook.

I like acorn squash stuffed with quinoa and pistachios, bonus points if there’s cheese involved (feta works well). It really makes a meal all by itself.

Big bowl of mashed potatoes and a river of creamed corn to top it. Or separate at the start.
