Having been a vegetarian for 14 years, itâ€™s usually easy to maintain the veg lifestyle. But it can get a little tricky around the holidays, especially Thanksgiving. I find myself tired of being teased for lugging along Tofurky, so some friends and I have decided to celebrate veggie style, with our own pre-party this Saturday. Weâ€™re having our second annual vegetarian Thanksgiving. This yearâ€™s menu will feature some classics like green bean casserole, but Iâ€™ll also be trying new recipes such as homemade sweet potato gnocchi with mushrooms and spinach, and butternut squash and cheddar bread pudding. What are your new traditions this Thanksgiving?
