I love that our Canadian Thanksgiving is in October, away from all the hustle and hubbub of the holiday season. I don’t know how I’d get any cooking or baking done for a crowd when my work plate is beyond full. So I sympathize and want to help my American neighbours to the south (and to anyone else looking for some comfort inspired autumn/winter dishes)…so I’ve created this tried, tested and true list of vegetarian Thanksgiving favourites from the past. Make, eat, enjoy and go for seconds.
Sides + Salads
Cafe Style Grated Carrot Salad
Curried Sweet Potato Salad with Cranberries & Pecans
Cranberry Rosemary Apple Sauce
Vegetarian Main Dishes
Quinoa & Chickpea Bake with Goat Cheese
Winter Squash & Caramelized Onion Biscuit Pie
Smoked Tofu & Vegetable Pot Pie
Yam & Bean Orange-Scented Chili
Winter Fruit Pie with Walnut Crumb
Old Fashioned Winter Apple Pandowdy
It’s probably bad that after seeing this, I want to change out my whole menu right?!
I’m from Canada too, but I loooooove browsing through recipe roundups at American Thanksgiving time because it helps inspire me! So many fall vegetables lying about, so little time to roast!
Just wanted to say that although it’s my first time commenting, I’m a long-time follower of your blog, and wanted to thank you for all the delicious recipes over the years!
All the best,
And I want to say thank you to you for sharing such wonderful recipes. I was not surprised to see how many on your list became a family favourite here.
🙂 Happy Thanksgiving Joanne!
Aw, thanks so much Alanna! I just checked out your blog & bookmarked a couple cookie recipes.
Lavender, thank you, I’m so glad that many of these have become favourites. I’m blushing!
I’ve made a few of these recipes on your list (curried sweet potato salad, cranberry-lemon squares) and they were very well received. Now I’m seeing a few others that may have slipped my mind i.e. winter squash-caramelized onion biscuit pie, winter apple pandowdy! Unfortunately, there’s not enough time at home to experiment with recipes. Perhaps over the Christmas break 🙂
That Apple Pandowdy will haunt me until I make it…
Joanne, sounds like you’ve been making your holiday treats early (as seen on instagram!). You’ve inspired me to get cracking!
RMW, thank you, just make it already 🙂
