Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Manchego

Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Manchego | @naturallyella

With every holiday meal, I love having a salad. It’s an easy win, providing a bit of lightness to an otherwise heavy meal. Plus, it can be a fun way to showcase ingredients in a new way. While I love roasted Brussels sprouts, shaving and serving them raw makes for a lovely salad. Add a few classic fall flavors and this shaved Brussels sprout salad can fit with almost any Thanksgiving meal. This salad is also better when made ahead of time, leaving more time closer to the meal!

Vegan Cornbread Stuffing

Vegan Cornbread Stuffing

Stuffing: You either love it or you hate it. Unless, that is, we’re talking cornbread stuffing.

Who doesn’t like cornbread? That’s why this hearty, flavorful, 10-ingredient stuffing is the perfect side for your Thanksgiving spread.

Can you believe this is the 8th (!!) and final recipe of my Thanksgiving Week Extravaganza? We’re going out with a bang with this wholesome, hearty, colorful stuffing.

Creamy Kale Salad with Chickpeas & Shallot

Creamy Kale Salad with Chickpeas & Shallot

This salad came to my mind right as I was falling asleep.

Does your brain ever do crazy stuff like that? My best ideas seem to come when I’m about to doze off and don’t have a notebook or pen to write things down, so I just make a pact with my brain to remember. And the next day we both do our best to recall what we were thinking.

Thankfully, this one made it through the pipeline!

Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes

This is the week each year I get asked for vegetarian Thanksgiving recipe ideas, so I thought I’d update my list of favorite recipes and ideas from the archives. I’ve also added a few recipes I’ve come across on other sites that looked exciting. I hope those of you preparing, and celebrating Thanksgiving this week have a wonderful time with friends, and loved ones. xo -h

Roasted Vegetable Orzo – Roasted delicata squash and kale tossed w/ orzo pasta & salted yogurt dressing.

A Favorite Pie – You could do apple-huckleberry, straight berries, pear-cranberry, etc.

Mashed Potatoes – This is the way to do them. Buttery peaks and cloud-like drizzled with a saffron garlic butter, and topped with a toasted almond, coriander, sesame sprinkle. Simple, but with a enough of a twist to make them special.

Golden-Crusted Brussels Sprouts – A quick and easy brussels sprouts recipe that will convert the biggest skeptics. Vibrant green, tender brussels sprouts that become deeply golden and crusty where they touch the pan, dusted with cheese.

Heirloom Apple Salad – heirloom apples, shaved celery, and toasted nuts of your choosing. The dressing is crème fraîche spiked with rosemary, garlic and champagne vinegar.

Roasted Delicata Squash Salad – So tasty! Pretty, scalloped-edged cross-cuts of the delicata squash, a few small potatoes, chopped kale, radishes, Marcona almonds – and a bold miso harissa dressing.

Lentils with Wine-Glazed Vegetables – These simple, wine-glazed lentils, from Deborah Madison, are a long-time favorite. Perfect addition to a Thanksgiving spread.

Raw Tuscan Salad – A red chile spiked, shredded raw kale salad tossed in a vibrant, lemony-pecorino dressing.

Pomelo Green Beans – A one-pan green bean side with a walnut-garlic dressing and highlighted with pomelo segments. Transform it into an easy main with the addition of some seared tofu or a poached egg.

Vibrant Tasty Green Beans – Or, this one, another favorite green bean recipe – dill, green beans, leeks, salt and olive oil. That’s it – five ingredients, one skillet – tasty green beans.

Quinoa Skillet Bread – If you’re ready to switch it up a bit, this is a completely over-the-top alternative to your favorite corn bread recipe. Or, better put – a rustic, minimally structured, custard-topped, crusty-edged, herb-scented corn-quinoa skillet bread.

Spiced Spinach with Walnuts – The jist: a hot pan filled with all manner of things that work well with spinach – toasted walnuts, shredded mint, lemon, a host of spices, and a good amount of leeks that are cooked until silky tender.

Hazelnut & Chard Ravioli Salad – I made this a couple years back, and it makes a great vegetarian main dish. Plump raviolis tossed with toasted hazelnuts, sautéed ribbons of chard, and caramelized onions are at the heart of this ravioli salad recipe. It’s finished off with a dusting of cheese, snipped chives, and lemon zest. You can prepare most of the components ahead of time.

Shredded Brussels Sprouts & Apples – Another favorite way to cook brussels sprouts. Shredded brussels sprout ribbons, apples, garlic, pine nuts, and tofu in a skillet with a hint of maple syrup.

And these? They look delicious as well.
