Spicy Sweet Potato Salad

When heading to a dinner party, I always opt to bring a healthy, hearty dish, something that will change everyone’s perspective on what “health” food actually tastes like.

Wild Rice, Lentil, and Cranberry Stuffed Delicata Squash

Wild Rice, Lentil, and Cranberry Stuffed Delicata Squash

Being the only vegetarian at a Thanksgiving table full of non-vegetarians can be a bit awkward. I know because I’ve been that vegetarian at the table for most of my Thanksgiving. In the past, I’ve been pretty insistent that I do not need a main course.

Apple Cranberry Crisp

For a warming dessert that satisfies, this easy apple and cranberry crisp is a must try. Vegans and nonvegans alike will love the traditional Fall flavors, crisp topping, and genius addition of pumpkin pie spice. Not only is this recipe deliciously dairy-free, it’s also low-fat and high in manganese; this antioxidant aids in digestion and fatigue

Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie sounds healthy — I mean, it’s made from pumpkins, right? — but the crust is mostly butter and white flour, and the cream in the filling is high in saturated fat. Your heart will love you if you whip up this version, which is completely raw, vegan, and gluten-free. Did I mention it tastes good, too?

Millet, Lentil, and Pomegranate Salad

Part of celebrating Thanksgiving is enjoying traditions and favorite recipes, but you can always move things around to make more table real estate for new dishes. My sister and I love to introduce the whole family to unusual ingredients like millet, so last Thanksgiving, we made a new version of our favorite lentil and millet salad.

Candied Acorn Squash Rings

Thanksgiving dinner wouldn’t be right without something that’s candied, but that casserole of sticky yams gets a bit tired year after year. Instead, tempt your guests’ taste buds with acorn squash rings that have been slathered with brown sugar and whiskey

A perfect vegetarian/vegan recipe: soft potato and pumpkin cubes in a deliciously spicy coconut milk sauce.pumpkin potato casserole

Russian Beet Salad with Prunes and Pecans

Beets are quite popular in Russian cuisine; there are a few different salads and soups using them. Up until a few years ago I never cooked with beets. Russian Beet Salad with Prunes and Pecans is perfect for winter months. Packed with nutrients and vitamins, it uses seasonal beets and is also budget-friendly.
