Vegetarian recipes ?

I'm trying to come up with a good side dish to bring to Thanksgiving dinner-- one that I can eat because I'm the only vegetarian in the family, but also one that my family can enjoy. Really the only thing I can think of so far is green bean casserole and mashed potatoes.

Any other ideas??

  • Yes I was thinking greenbean casserole, but when I make it I fry an onion in olive oil and then add them to the green beans, the cream of mushroom soup and the french fried onions on top. Its always a hit because I also add garlic powder.

    Stuffed Bell Peppers

    Ingredients (use vegan versions):

    2-3 packs crumbles

    11 green bell peppers

    1 large onion (white, yellow, or Vidalia)

    5-6 toes of garlic or more to taste

    1/4 - 1/2 cup water or vegetable broth

    1/2 cup bread crumb

    Tony Chachere's seasoning to taste or salt and pepper/cayenne pepper to taste

    olive oil


    1 stick melted margarine

    20 teaspoons bread crumb


    Preheat oven to 350.

    Boil ten bell peppers in water until they are soft but not mushy.

    Meanwhile chop onion, 1 remaining bell pepper, and garlic. Saute in olive oil until transparent and no longer hard.

    Add crumbles and cook on low heat just until hot. Add Tony Chachers and or other seasoning to taste (I prefer Tony's and cayenne pepper). Add water or vegetable broth along with bread crumbs to make a mushy consistency. I usually do not measure the water and bread crumbs…I just add until I get the right consistency. Set aside.

    Cut peppers in half, de-seed and stuff the peppers. Place in baking dish. Sprinkle each stuffed pepper with bread crumbs then top with melted margarine.

    Bake in oven at 350 for 30 to 45 mins until bread crumbs have browned. If peppers are too firm, place a little water in the bottom of the pan, cover with foil and bake 30-45 minutes; then uncover and bake another 10 to 15 minutes.

    What about squash casserole? I love it...

    Something with carrots?

    Sweet potatoes?

    Your options are wide open to everything except turkey - so any side dish you would typically make as a vegetarian for your own meals should be great!
