Most of us start planning this Holiday even before we pick out our Halloween costumes. A holiday that originated hundreds of years ago between two vastly different cultures has remained one of the biggest holidays in our country. A tradition bringing families together across the country regardless of distance or time.

We know that what we’re about to suggest may be taboo to some of you and a godsend to others. Have you ever considered a… Vegetarian Thanksgiving?
Hold on, stop for a second before you laugh. Turkey may be synonymous with Thanksgiving, but most of the other dishes we have at the table are, in fact, fruit and vegetable based if we really stop to think about it: Mashed potatoes, Green bean casseroles, Cranberry sauce … The list goes on and on! Maybe we should give this idea a bit more thought?
Angela, over at her blog: oh she glows, is here to show us just how easy and delicious veggie Thanksgiving can be! Her array of enchanting and delectable vegetarian recipes. Crispy Smashed Potatoes with Avocado Garlic Aioli, Lentil Mushroom Walnut Balls with Cranberry-Pear Sauce, and Gooey Pumpkin Spice Latte Chocolate Pudding Cake are just a few of the incredible dishes that could high-light your table this year- and all vegetarian friendly!
We saved the traditional for last, but certainly not least.

On her blog, Simply Recipes, she leaves out all of the fuss and muss and gets right down to good, old-fashioned holiday cooking with little twinges of flair that will keep everything you love about the classic Thanksgiving recipes, and add that extra little spark you will wonder how you lived without! Apple Cranberry Pie, Bourbon Mashed Sweet Potatoes, and Cranberry Apple Sauce barely even scratch the surface of what Elise has to show you to wow your guests for years to come!
