Preparing for the (Flexitarian) Feast

Two weeks from today, many of this country’s citizens will still be recovering from what is traditionally the heaviest feast day of the American calendar year- Thanksgiving. Now I could never knock a holiday built around food (let’s be honest, most holidays are built around food so far as I’m concerned) but the Mushroom Channel would love to help you avoid that overstuffed food hangover that sets the stage for the kind of winter layer we can’t pull off like a wool sweater once the heat kicks on.

Mushrooms are a key ingredient to filling your feast with a lot of beloved fall flavors, minus the big time calories. For the next two weeks, we’ll be highlighting a few recipes per post that would make for a meal the whole family can enjoy- including the vegans or vegetarians at the table (or in the kitchen, for that matter).

The goal is simple: providing options so that no one feels like they need to skip their favorite dishes to keep from feeling like they swallowed Plymouth rock for days afterward. Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving dish you think we should feature? Leave us a link in the comments!
