New York Times Wants Your Veg-Friendly Thanksgiving Recipes!
I grew up eating the cliche’ Thanksgiving meal: turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, cranberries, pumpkin pie, and all the other items you wouldn’t be surprised to see sitting on the gobble-gobble holiday table. Thanksgiving is my favorite meal of the year. The first time I prepared a Thanksgiving sans turkey, I was nervous over how it would turn out. Would I still be able to achieve a menu that would continue to live up to holidays past? I’m happy to say, yes, a veg holiday menu can be every bit as sleepy-bliss inducing as a “traditional” omnivore kind.
I’m sure many of you reading this have your own story about cooking your first plant-based Thanksgiving. I also wager that you now have your own go-to favorites that make up your new traditional meal. Guess what? The New York Times would like your favorite veg recipes! Every fall they hold a contest to celebrate the vegetarian side dish. This year though, they’re looking for something different.
“ We’re looking for show-stopping vegetarian or vegan dishes that can hold their own at the center of the holiday table. We want dishes that make the meat-eaters take a second look — or better yet, skip the turkey altogether…”
Do you think you have that show-stopper in your recipe vault? What are you waiting for? Go find it, enter, and wow the New York Times! And while you’re at it…. as long as you already have your recipes out, why not share them with others by adding them to the recipe section at Clearly Veg? We’re a growing site and would love to have more yummy veg-friendly recipes!
