Oh dear. Thanksgiving snuck up on me this year. Well, if I’m honest, it happens every year. It’s accurate and probably obvious to say I am not a planner. If you’re anything like me, I hope this roundup of simple vegetarian and vegan Thanksgiving recipes helps you with last minute ideas. If you are the opposite of me, add them to your menu plan for 2016! Either way, I hope you have a safe, happy and delicious holiday.

P.S. I’m sharing recipes from the archives of Eating Clean Recipes, and from my new blog, Kingfield Kitchen. To get my latest recipes, please follow me on Instagram and Facebook, or sign up for email updates over at Kingfield Kitchen.

Salads and Soup
Kale Squash Quinoa Salad Kale and Roasted Squash Quinoa Salad
Hearty quinoa salad with roasted butternut squash, baby kale, apple and a sherry-orange dressing.

Butter Lettuce Salad Butter Lettuce Salad with Pomegranate and Walnuts
A simple green salad with toasted thyme walnuts, fresh orange segments and pomegranate arils.

Easy Wild Rice Salad Wild Rice Salad with Broccoli
My Minnesota heritage obligates me to serve a wild rice dish during the holidays. Good thing I adore this simple wild rice salad with broccoli, sugar snap peas, dried cherries and pecans.

Vegetarian Carrot Soup Vegetarian Roasted Carrot Soup
Roasting the carrots makes this velvety carrot soup sweet and delicious. The addition of coconut milk adds creaminess, and keeps it vegan.

Veggie Sides
Brussels Sprouts and Squash Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Squash from Kingfield Kitchen
Two favorite veggies, Brussels sprouts and delicata squash, in one easy side dish.

Parsnips and Carrots Roasted Parsnips and Carrots with Hazelnuts
Stop ignoring parsnips! This overlooked vegetable is crazy good.

Ras El Hanout Cauliflower and Sweet Potatoes Moroccan Spiced Cauliflower and Sweet Potatoes
Ras el hanout is the secret seasoning that takes roasted cauliflower and sweet potatoes from good to great.

Vegan Stuffed Peppers Vegan Stuffed Peppers from Kingfield Kitchen
Here’s a tip. Many vegetarians don’t miss turkey, and don’t care to be served bizarre tofu turkey sculptures. Veggies are just fine, thank you. I’d rather have a vegan stuffed pepper any day of the week, including Thanksgiving. (rant over) Oh, try these sweet peppers stuffed with rice, mushrooms and greens.

Vegan Oatmeal Apple Crisp Easy Vegan Apple Crisp from Kingfield Kitchen
A vegan dessert that is worth sharing! Spiced apples with a crumb topping made with old-fashioned oats, almond meal, brown sugar and coconut oil.

Traditional Pumpkin Pie Traditional Pumpkin Pie
Because some traditions are here to stay, I made traditional pumpkin pie every Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Everyone-
Where the heck have I been? It’s been so quiet around here lately because I’ve been working on another project. I’m super excited to share that I have a new food blog called Kingfield Kitchen!

Why Kingfield Kitchen? This summer I moved twice, finally ending up in the Kingfield neighborhood of Minneapolis. I love my new neighborhood, my new kitchen and the opportunity for a fresh start. Kingfield Kitchen is a mostly healthy food blog that leaves room for indulgent recipes and a cocktail or two. Simple vegetarian recipes and clean eating will remain key focus areas. I hope you’ll visit my new blog and say hi!

In the meantime, here’s a look at my “natural light photo studio” (a.k.a. my side porch).

And here’s a peek at some of the things I’ve been making over at Kingfield Kitchen:
