For me, the best part of the holiday season is the warmth of the kitchen and the aroma of fresh baked cookies. I love making classic cookies with a modern twist like using gluten free oat flour in place of wheat flour or coconut oil in place of butter. Here are links to some of my favorite cookie and treat recipes from this site, and Kingfield Kitchen, my new recipe blog.
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 and Roasted Squash Quinoa Salad
Hearty quinoa salad with roasted butternut squash, baby kale, apple and a sherry-orange dressing.
Butter Lettuce Salad with Pomegranate and Walnuts
A simple green salad with toasted thyme walnuts, fresh orange segments and pomegranate arils.
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 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.
Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Squash from Kingfield Kitchen
Two favorite veggies, Brussels sprouts and delicata squash, in one easy side dish.
