My Vegetarian Thanksgiving

This Saturday, we had a slightly early Thanksgiving with our friends.
It was a much anticipated afternoon... Thanksgiving is very special to me, because in spite of living in France where very few people celebrate it, WE do, which reaffirms my identity as an American all the more!

It was an afternoon of good food, good conversation and good people, as Thanksgiving should be.
Interestingly enough, my mom and I only made one of the dishes from my Thanksgiving Meal Ideas post... every recipe we used was new to us. But I am NOT exaggerating when I say that every single thing we ate was absolutely delicious.
Not even one dish was in the slightest way mediocre.

Have you ever wondered what a vegetarian eats at Thanksgiving? Well here's your answer.
(Links to the recipes are at the bottom of this post)

Pear and Fennel Salad

Squash, Spinach and Onion tart

Yummy Mashed Potatoes...

... and Vegetarian Wild Mushroom Gravy to pour over it!

Rosemary Roasted Carrots

 Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

"The Best Vegetarian Stuffing Ever" (The title of this recipe is not misleading: it really is the best I've ever had! Too bad I didn't take a picture of it from the inside. )

For dessert, we served Paradise Pumpkin Pie (a three layer pumpkin pie! Oh my!)!

 This is my bro and I before our feast started :P

Somewhere in this wild world we call the internet, I found this cute and free downloadable banner to print... It went perfectly on our wall! 

Now if you're interested in making any of these recipes, here's where you'll find them:

What are you going to make this Thanksgiving?


  1. Oh my! This looks incredible! Being a vegetarian never looked so good! Especially that Carmelized onion tart! WOW! And that banner is too cute!

  2. What a beautiful feast. Everything looks delicious. We are having stuffing mashed potatoes and peas cranberry sauce and cranberry bread turban squash, wild mushroom gravy and I hate to say it a turkey.Stephie is bring dessert probably a pumpkin roll. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I love this! It's Thanksgiving with a French twist. So lovely.

    What type of stuffing did you make? I always love to hear about the interesting stuffing (actually, it's called dressing if it's not stuffed inside the turkey) that people make.

    Stephie is making a pumpkin roll as I write this--it's her first try! We are so thankful to have health, home, and a long weekend ahead of us to relax and do some fun things together. We are saving our pennies for a Spring trip to France! xoxo

  4. Oooops sorry, I just saw the links to your recipes. That stuffing recipe sounds delicious. I love using baguettes for stuffing. The crust is so delicious. xoxo
