As the country becomes collectively more health-conscious, holiday meals have gotten a little more difficult. Your aunt is vegan; your cousin doesn’t eat gluten; Grandma is lactose-intolerant; your sister doesn’t eat meat; Dad invited Michael Pollan to dinner—sh*t just got complicated and that Stop & Shop turkey ain’t gonna cut it.
While that scenario is a little dramatized (Me? Exaggerate?? Never…), we probably all have a person coming to dinner this Thanksgiving who doesn’t want to eat turkey. In my family, it’s my mom and I. Luckily, there are countless ways to incorporate holiday flavors into a main course without meat. As part of my collaboration with Nasoya, I experimented around with tons of vegetarian recipes in the kitchen, and these spaghetti squash boats were a home run. They’re filling, use seasonal flavors, and make for a perfect vegetarian Thanksgiving meal. If you’re vegan, just leave out the goat cheese!

Do you have any vegetarians coming to Thanksgiving dinner this year? What are you planning on serving?
