I'm hosting Thanksgiving for my parents and siblings and my bf's parents and brother. I know my family doesn't expect meat, and I know his family knows I don't cook meat, but I'm not entirely sure they've realized it's going to be vegetarian unless someone else decides to bring a turkey. (Which really, is ok with me, as long as I don't have to deal with it at all)
My menu, so far, is:
Seitan Roulade stuffed with a Walnut Pear stuffing
Butternut squash risotto
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Other green veggies to be determined later (possibly green beans and almonds, or some steamed broccoli... perhaps also, not green, but cinnamon apple glazed baby carrots)
Sweet potato and apple bake
Citrus flavoured cranberry sauce with apple bits (mellows out the cranberry tartness)
Then for dessert..
definitely an apple pie and pecan pie... possibly a sweet potato pie as well
OH and for appetizers..
I'm going to bake a nice Boule (round loaf of bread)
Have cheese and crackers (for those who eat cheese)
I may make a 3 layered vegetable pate I saw in a cookbook.. it looks awesome.. it's mushroom, spinach and tomato I believe.
