Although many people may think that no holiday meal is complete without ham, turkey, or some other meat, this doesn’t ring true for vegetarians. There are many unique and flavorful alternatives to traditional holiday dishes that even your meat-loving friends will enjoy. Take a look at some of these fresh and tasty vegetarian dishes recommended by Callen Construction, your expert remodeling company in Milwaukee, to try at your next holiday meal.
For a quick and easy side dish to complement your meal, try this recipe for Honey Roasted Butternut Squash. Large pieces make prep a snap and are perfect for capturing the flavor of the honey-butter drizzle. You can also incorporate other favorite winter vegetables with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Butternut Squash or Sheet Pan Roasted Vegetables.
Many people find mac and cheese to be the ultimate comfort food. Fontina and Mascarpone Baked Pasta, made with Italian cheeses and topped with garlicky goodness, is a version of mac and cheese fit for a more discriminating adult palate, and could be a great addition to your holiday spread. Lasagna, another popular Italian favorite, takes on new life in this recipe for Butternut Squash Lasagna made with spinach and caramelized onions.
Mushrooms are a great source of vitamin D and other nutrients, and their dense and meaty texture make them a great meat substitute. Add Portobello Mushrooms Stuffed with Eggplant and Gorgonzola to your menu for a rich and filling main dish, or try replacing the chicken broth with vegetable broth in this recipe for Soft Polenta with Wild Mushroom Sauté for an appetizing side dish.
