Happy Thanksgiving! Vegetarian Inspirations!

Vegetarian Turkey-Free Alternative

For Thanksgiving: How about a Field Roast Stuffed Celebration Roast? It’s a turkey-free, plant-based alternative. (And, it’s yummy.)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Over at our Peace Couple website, we focus on kind shopping and sustainability, so we have some vegetarian posts and links there. For Thanksgiving, we wanted to share a few turkey alternatives here, too.

Just stumbled upon this interesting site from England with a lot of vegetarian recipes. Thought I would share it as inspiration for anyone who has to cook for a vegetarian today:
The Vegetarian Experience

You do not need a pretend turkey to have a vegetarian Thanksgiving: You can think out of the box. There are plenty of delicious foods with protein, and plenty of side dishes to conjure up old memories and tradition. It’s easy to find vegetarian cranberry sauce (just skip the kind with gelatin.) Here are some websites with vegetarian recipes: VegWeb.com, PETA.org recipe page

Though, if you feel the need for a turkey-like dish, or, if you are cooking, and you know that your friends and family will expect “a turkey”, then there are suggestions, with ratings, in an article at Slate Magazine: here.

Slate used a rating system based on appearance, meatiness, and overall taste. I think it is useful to list the non-turkey options they reviewed. And, their ratings might be especially useful if you are serving to folks who are not vegetarians. Though, I have to say, I disagree a bit on the Slate summary of the “Field Roast Stuffed Celebration Roast” — it is one of my favorite meals. And, it looks pretty good if you rub some oil and spices on it!

List of “alternate turkey” choices from Slate Magazine:

1. Field Roast Stuffed Celebration Roast

2. Quorn Turk’y Roast

3. Tofurky

4. Gardein Protein Stuffed Veggie Turkey Roast
