UnTurkey Recipes

On this day before Thanksgiving the Internets are sure to be chock full of swoon worthy recipes perfect for your Turkey Day table.  For those of us who choose to give thanks with something other than Meleagris gallopavo, here are a few UnTurkey ideas.

Is pork more your flavor?  Then perhaps you should invite David Lebovitz’s Carnitas to dinner.

Looking for a vegetarian option?  How about a nice big bowl of Lentil Soup with Vegetables from Delicieux?  Metric conversions aside, this is a quick and easy soup you will be thankful for.

And if you want to jazz up some sweet potatoes, how about a Warm Lentil and Sweet Potato Salad with Maple Vinaigrette from The Washington Post?

Happy Thanksgiving y’all.  May your table, and your day, be full.

    Thanks Beth. Have a safe trip to the beach. I’ll be thinking of you when I bake that apple spice cake tonight. Smitten’s cake, your frosting.

    happy turkey break! i’m making duck, it’ll be my first attempt. i’ll text you to let you know how it goes!

    • Wendi says:

      Duck? That’s a fantastic idea. If you decide you want some company, come on over. Dinner will be 4ish and dessert sometime around 5 or 5:30.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving, Wendi! We’re eating Greek for T-day! Hooray! No big bird!

    Hope you guys have a great Thanksgiving! We are having turkey at Cal and Alice’s tomorrow, but both Bryan and I prefer to have something different. One year we had lasagna-it was fabulous!!

    • Wendi says:

      Happy Thanksgiving Celina. I’ve already decided that we’re doing lasagna for Christmas. Hope all is well with Cal, Alice, and the gang. Please give them all a big Happy Thanksgiving for me.

  7. My tart pan is raring to go. All that’s missing is a BAH sponsor sticker on the side.

    Hope you and The Mistah have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Wendi.

    • Wendi says:

      If I were graphically inclined and could doodle together a BAH Seal of Approval, I’d totally send it your way for that tart. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

      Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. The Mistah and I have Harry Potter on our agenda for Friday.

  8. Oh well done Wendi 🙂 Loving your suggestions for some alternatives, big fan of David Lebovitz, so I think I’d borrow some of his awesome dishes. Happy Thanksgiving 🙂

    Maple vinaigrette sounds lovely! It’s too late now, but I’ll keep that recipe in mind for Christmas Eve. I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!
