While the recipes from our cookbook, Vegeterranean, are Italian, there are many wonderful ideas we thought would make a superb and unique vegetarian Thanksgiving menu. Of course, you could create these recipes any day of the year, and there are many more found inside the 296-page book, but these are just a sampling of our favorites.
