Thanksgiving vegetable recipes!
Can you name Thanksgiving's top vegetables?
A Veggie Venture readers voted!
Since 2006, it's tradition here at A Veggie Venture to feature Thanksgiving vegetable recipes throughout November, now collected here in one convenient place! The collection features recipes for your favorite Thanksgiving vegetables, the ones long-time readers and frequent visitors themselves voted for! The collection is updated every year (including in 2015!) and now lists four dozen featured Thanksgiving recipes (and 100+ in total!), all:
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 for A Veggie Venture, no skimping on butter, cream and cheese!
Every year, one new recipe stands out as a "reader favorite". The collection's very first recipe, World's Best Green Bean Casserole remains the all-time favorite but in 2007, the low-carb Cauliflower Cream was the surprise favorite, followed in 2008 by Creamy Brussels Sprouts Gratin. In 2009, readers loved my Savory Bread Pudding with Butternut Squash, Chard & Cheddar and in 2010, the dramatic and vegetarian or vegan Fall Stew Baked in a Whole Pumpkin. Even though the sweet potato is our favorite vegetable at Thanksgiving, it took 2011's Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes with Cranberry & Orange to really grab readers' attention. The favorite in 2012, especially on Pinterest, was the Silky Smooth Corn Pudding. In 2013, readers couldn't get enough of Pioneer Woman's Broccoli Wild Rice Casserole. Then in 2014, I focused entirely on perfecting Thanksgiving potatoes. The big winner? Three Secrets for Rich & Creamy Mashed Potatoes. What will be the favorite recipe in 2015? We'll see! Watch for new recipes throughout November! Enjoy!
