Miniature Pumpkins Stuffed With Spiced Lentils

The lentils are delicious when served without the pumpkin, too. Adapted from 365 Ways to Cook Vegetarian. Plan on one “Jack Be Little” or other miniature pumpkin per person.

Wild Rice Stuffed Roasted Squash

Here is one that is always a stand-by for any holiday gathering–usually Thanksgiving. It is great as a main dish or as a side dish.

Sweet Potato Casserole

Ok, this turned out to be the most popular dish at out Thanksgiving dinner. I completely made it up as I went along, so I was scared to death. Here’s the quick (non measured, sorry!)

Crockpot Vegan Stuffing

This was the best vegan stuffing I’ve ever tasted. Even the meat eaters loved it and commented that the mushroom gave it a wonderful texture. I adapted this recipe from one I found somewhere on the internet. I wasn’t exact on the spice measurements (meaning I didn’t level off the top of the measuring spoon).

Mince “Meat” Pie

Here’s one that I used long ago. It’s from the November 1991 issue of Vegetarian Times, and until now it’s been in a binder with a lot of old recipes. I remember making it several times and liking it and then passing it along to my non-vegetarian father when he wanted to use up a lot of the citrus fruit he grows. He loved it, too.

    • At Home in the World
        Several years ago a man who broke my heart told me that somewhere in the Casteneda books, the wise man told the seeker that if you’re in love with the world you’re never lonely. This man said he thought that I was one of these special people, that I was in love with the […]
