Thanksgiving Vegetable Recipes 2007

2010 UPDATE
The latest collections of Thanksgiving vegetable recipes are now available!
This year, I've turned the tables a little, featuring

Favorite Recipes for Thanksgiving's Favorite Vegetables

and

Vegetarian Entrée Recipes for Thanksgiving.







Turkey and dressing may take center stage but ahhhh, Thanksgiving vegetables -- welcome to the second annual collection of Thanksgiving vegetable recipes from A Veggie Venture!

Between now and Thanksgiving, watch for brand-new vegetable recipes especially suited for our Thanksgiving tables:

  • perfect for special dinners but not over the top

  • fresh fall vegetables prepped mostly or entirely in advance

  • easily multiplied for large gatherings and divided for small ones

  • and a little different around here, no skimping on butter and cream and cheese!


The 2006 Thanksgiving collection was such a hit -- especially this site's all-time #1 recipe, the World's Best Green Bean Casserole -- that for months now, I've been watching for new recipes for this year. The 2007 collection (including this year's surprise favorite, Cauliflower Cream) will emerge day by day as new recipes are posted between now and Thanksgiving. I love every single one of these Thanksgiving vegetable recipes and truly hope they inspire your own Thanksgiving gathering! ~ Alanna
