I tried the Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts from the NY Times website tonight. OMG, what a happy bunch of taste buds I have!

Hey Guys! Here's the stuffed squash recipe. I use about 1/2 the sage just because I'm not a fan.

www.food.com/recipe/stuffed-acorn-sq
ua

Fall Fruit Crisp
Recipe from The Joys of Vegan Baking

FILLING
6-8 cups cored & sliced or shopped pears and/or apples
1 c blueberries, fresh or frozen (optional)
1 c raisins (optional)
Juice from 1 lemon
1/4 c pure maple syrup
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t allspice

TOPPING
1 c rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
1 c chopped walnuts or pecans, toasted for 10 minutes
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c non-hydrogenated, nondairy butter
1/4 c firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t allspice
1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 t salt
1/2 t anise seeds (optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 350. Have ready an ungreased 8 or 9 inch square baking pan at least 2 inches deep.
2. To make the filling, in a medium-size bowl, combine the pears, blueberries (if using), raisins (if using), lemon juice, maple syrup, cinnamon, and allspice and pour into the baking pan.
3. To make the topping, in a separate bowl (or simply rinse out the one you just used), combine the oats, walnuts, flour, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, salt and anise seeds (if using). The topping should be crumbly (and chunky from the walnuts) and have the texture of wet sand. If it's too dry, add a little more butter or a couple teaspoons of water.
4. Sprinkle the topping over the fruit mixture, make sure it's evenly distributed. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the pears and apples are soft when pierced with a toothpick or fork. Remove from the oven and serve hot, warm or at room temperature; you can also serve it a la mode

I am trying something new myself. I am cookin' up some squash and mushrooms and other herbs and spices and then I am going to wrap it in puff pastry and bake it nice and golden. I also have my family's "secret" recipe for candied sweet potatoes. I altered the cornbread recipe from the Happy Herbivore because my son loves my version. Still trying to decide on desert.

Liv2ride, I'd love your fall fruit crumble and stuffed squash recipes, too.

Bonidale, you are one cool lady. I'm sure your brother-in-law will be blown away.

Yum! Both those dishes sound delicious, I will try them. Live2ride, may I have your fall fruit crumble recipe if you can find it? Sounds like a perfect finish to a meal. My brother-in-law is coming to dinner - my late husband's brother. He was the one who mocked my food choices till he had a major wake-up call last fall from his doctor (cholesterol through the roof, borderline diabetic, high blood pressure, cancer scare) - I want to rock his socks off with this meal. emoticon

I make a stuffed acorn squash, roasted root veggies and brussel sprouts and a fall fruit crumble for dessert. I don't do the tofurkey stuff and can't make seitan either. Squash is in season and yummy. Let me know if you need a recipe I will dig mine out.

I don't have any links to share, but I am planning on a carb overload -- stuffing, lots of stuffing. I am going to try to make my own, maybe with some tofu crumbled into it. Mashed sweet potatoes and chard with cranberries, I think. Though a lentil loaf might be good too. Hmm.

Bonidale, my brother sent me this link last year and the recipes that I've tried from it...don't ask me 'what,' it was a long time ago...were great. They're not all vegan, but enough of them are or could be adapted.

Usually, I try to post a new topic every week with a link that I think that you might find interesting. This week, I am asking for your help. The Canadian Thanksgiving is coming up next weekend - the American Columbus Day. Does anyone have a really great tried-and-true link to a vegan Thanksgiving menu that I could try? I really hate tofurky and seitan - anything that looks like meat. I want some colourful vegetable dishes made from local produce if possible and a really great nut loaf recipe?
