It's almost Thanksgiving time, and my family has started to plan out our menu. But there's one thing we haven't figured out: a main dish that my younger brother, a vegan, can enjoy, while the rest of us chow down on turkey. Sure, we'll make the sweet potatoes without butter, the Brussels sprouts without bacon. (At least, some of them.) I might do a special take-out run for him; there are great, inexpensive Mediterranean and Japanese options within a few blocks. But eating cucumber sushi alongside mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie just doesn't seem right.
Vegetarians out there, or those cooking for one: What's your veggie-friendly Thanksgiving plan? Do you have a meatless holiday tradition? Or are the Thanksgiving sides enough?
