Hold the Turkey, Please
Page 2 of 2

Since this person will not be eating your "main course," you might want to make one of your side dishes a little more substantial. For instance, the Butternut Squash Gratin recipe included here is a perfect accompaniment to a holiday meal, and it's hearty enough to stand alone. Also, bulking up your salad a bit with nuts and other goodies will help make it a little more filling (see our Red Leaf Salad w/toasted pecans, mandarin orange slices & a champagne vinaigrette for instance)

The important thing is to not get hung up on whether all your guests have tried the turkey you slaved over. Different people have different tastes, and it's rather pointless to feel offended if someone chooses not to eat one of the many wonderful dishes you've prepared. The holidays are really about family and friends, remembering and sharing, so use this time to connect with loved ones and just enjoy the new memories you're creating for generations to come.

Here are some additional vegetarian Thanksgiving resources:
