Sweet Potato Crisp
Whenever I'm invited to a party, they always ask me to bring my Sweet Potato Crisp. I could be concerned and wonder if they only want me for my food, but I don't mind because it is a super easy casserole to bring to parties.
I'm a vegetarian, so I always bring meatless dishes to parties to make sure that there is something yummy for the vegetarians and to show the meat eaters that vegetarian food is delicious. Sweet Potato Crisp is the most popular meatless dish that I prepare. It's super easy to prepare, and it's a one-dish meal that's super easy to transport to parties.
This book features a nice selection of vegetarian recipes for Thanksgiving and other holidays and family celebrations.

- Easy Broccoli and Cheese
A super simple way to get your kids to eat more broccoli. Vegans can skip the butter and replace the mayonnaise with Veganaise. Also, replace the cow's milk with plain almond milk or soy milk. A great vegan cheese is Vegan Gourmet.
- Pumpkin Bread
Pumpkin bread is a fantastic hostess gift when you are invited to someone else's house for Thanksgiving dinner.
- Tofurky Roast
The men in my family really love the Tofurky Roast for Thanksgiving dinner. It's super tasty and stuffed with wild rice and whole wheat bread crumb stuffing.
