It’s November! Are you ready for Thanksgiving yet? I added a link to my sidebar with all of my Thanksgiving-related content for those of you who like to do your planning in advance. And I’m going to be posting some more Thanksgiving ideas over the next few weeks too, both here on Oh My Veggies and on Potluck. I don’t usually do a lot of holiday posts, but I make an exception for Thanksgiving because it’s so centered around food. Food that is not vegetarian! And that can be a little frustrating.
Here’s what I ate this week:
Smoky Butternut Squash Sauce with Pasta and Greens from Oh She Glows // THIS IS SO GOOD! You should make it. I added some Field Roast sausage to ours since I had it on hand. We loved the smoky flavor of this sauce.
Raw Caramel Dip with Apples from Nutrition Stripped // McKel is one of the regular contributors for Potluck and when she submitted this recipe, I was so excited about it because anything involving caramel? I am all over it. If you haven’t had raw caramel sauce before, it tastes surprisingly like the real thing. This helped me resist all the candy we bought for Halloween.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts Skewers with Lemon-Thyme Dipping Sauce from Vegetarian Times // Brussels sprouts! On a stick! Although I’ll be honest, since I was just making these for Chris and me, I only put a few on the skewers for the picture, so this photo is a lie. But it’s a delicious lie.
Crispy Bean and Cheese Tacos from Mountain Mama Cooks // I had a random bag of leftover refried beans in the freezer, so this seemed like the perfect recipe to make with them. And it was! Even if I burned my tortillas a little bit. Oops! This is why you should not text and cook at the same time.
Apple Cinnamon Tea Latte from Running to the Kitchen // Waking up to a foamy, apple-y latte is a great way to start the day. Delicious!
Farro and Sausage-Stuffed Baked Apples from Potluck // I participated in McCormick’s Go 4 Gourmet challenge and had to develop a recipe using farro, nutmeg, chestnuts, and apples. This is what I came up with! I made savory baked apples stuffed with Field Roast (vegetarian!) sausage, farro, chestnuts, cheese and sautéed onions.
