Meatless Thanksgiving

What meatless dishes grace your Thanksgiving table?

A few months before Thanksgiving, I start paying attention to interesting recipes and make a list. That way, when Thanksgiving week comes, I won't draw a blank when deciding what to make.

This year I'm leaning towards roasted pumpkin seeds with paprika, homemade cranberry sauce, roasted vegetables, cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, and quinoa with roasted corn and lentils I'll marinate ahead of time in seasonal spices and oil. For dessert there will be real whipped cream atop brown sugar pumpkin pie, baked pears with cardamom crumble topping, and my own recipe of butter Thanksgiving-themed cutout cookies with seasonal spices.

    I made a homemade cranberry sauce. I didn't have enough berries so I supplemented them with locally grown sour cherries.

    This is the best.ever.cranberry.sauce.hands.down.!!
