A Thanksgiving turkey is a staple for most families. But if you don’t eat meat and want some more substance besides starchy side dishes, prepare these delicious vegetarian Thanksgiving recipes this year.

Roasted Acorn Squash with Wild Rice Stuffing: This autumn dish will be sure to satisfy with its zestful combination of wild rice, cranberries and pecans. 

Winter Greens Lasagne: This flavorful pasta dish is made with kale and Swiss-chard. 

Savory Onion and Leek Tart: This dish combines caramelized onions, sautéed leeks, crème fraîche, and herbs. 

Mushroom and Fennel Bread Pudding: In place of stuffing, try this bread pudding, which features mushrooms, sage and cheese.

Are you preparing vegetarian recipes this Thanksgiving? Tell me in the comments section what you’re cooking.

(Bonus: Reducing your intake of meat also has positive environmental effects. A 2006 United Nations report found that the meat industry produces more greenhouse gases than all vehicles combined.)
