It’s feast time! Om nom nom. It’s time to loosen your belt and break out the big plates. While others may say their favorite Thanksgiving food is turkey, as a vegetarian, I love the stuffing, yams, and pumpkin pie! Mmmm. Even though I go green by avoiding the turkey, I still always have enough food to get fantastically full. How? I have tons of great vegetarian recipes for Thanksgiving! Here are some of the best ones:

I love vegetarian recipes  for turkey-shaped appetizer dishes! This adorable one is made using a pear for the head, cheese for his feet and nose, and fruit for feathers. Cutest vegetarian recipe ever! This dish can be made lots of different ways–try making a pilgrim or a pumpkin shape instead. Speaking of pumpkins, here are two fun pumpkin vegetarian recipes for Thanksgiving appetizers.

If you want to go the more traditional route in your vegetarian recipes,  you can always make vegetarian stuffing for your Tofurky. Vegetarian recipes for stuffing are really adaptable! Play around with substituting quinoa, squash or eggplant for a whole new flavor!

Another one of my favorite vegetarian recipes is this tasty candied yams dish. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Another fun dish is sweet potatoes in Thanksgiving themed cupcake wrappers.

But what about a vegetarian recipes for dessert?! I was saving the best vegetarian recipes for last. Drum roll please! My personal favorite: pumpkin pie! Like all vegetarian recipes, vegetarian dessert can be as creative as you like. Try baking your favorite dessert in a Thanksgiving shaped pan or cut out holiday designs using a cookie cutter. This always turns dull vegetarian recipes for dessert into works of art!  Remember, no matter what dish you choose to make, get moving and make this vegetarian Thanksgiving a yummy one!
