Vegetarian Thanksgiving Menu Ideas

There are many traditional foods and customs for Thanksgiving and I have put together a list of recipes and ideas for some Vegetarian Thanksgiving Menus.

Vegetarian Menu

Thanksgiving commemorates the harvest celebration of the Pilgrims and the Indians in the autumn of 1621. However, it was in 1863 when President Lincoln first decreed the holiday known today as Thanksgiving Day.

Turkey, Horn of Plenty, Cranberry Sauce – even marshmallow slathered yams….. these are all symbols of Thanksgiving.

The cornucopia is a symbol of food and abundance dating back to the 5th century BC, also referred to as the food of worship and holiness, Horn of Amalthea, harvest cone, and horn of plenty. (Wikepedia). Today, the cornucopia is associated with Thanksgiving and the harvest.
Traditional foods for Thanksgiving include roast turkey, sweet potatoes, sweet corn, cranberry sauce and pumpkin or other fall vegetables. Well, ya ain't gonna find a turkey recipe on this site! But you are going to find some awesome alternatives that will make your Vegetarian Thanksgiving Meal a feast to remember!

So… with all of the above in mind, I have come up with the following menus. I hope these ideas inspire you to be creative this Holiday Season. Good Food, Family and Friends make holidays memorable and festive. Enjoy your holiday!
