GUEST,ClaireBear vegetarian main dish? (48) RE: vegetarian main dish? 17 Nov 04


Personally, I think that the theatrical aspect of Thanksgiving dinner -- presenting the giant, golden bird to the table -- needs to be respected, even if you're going veggie.

So I favor roasting a whole, scooped-out pumpkin (preferably a rouge d'étampes variety -- those great-tasting, beautifully furrowed bright red French pumpkins that are not even a little bit watery), and then stuffing it with some cooked, pilaf-like main-dish mixture like rice, pine nuts, TVP, onion, dried cranberries, etc., with plenty of marjoram and sage. Then you have something splendid to set on the table. And you can make soup with the leftover pumpkin the next day, just like you used to do with the turkey carcass!
