Thanksgiving Leftovers

Cranberry Yogurt

Did You Know? It was not until 1941, that congress declared Thanksgiving as a national holiday.

I said I would share a few tips or suggestions for all those Thanksgiving leftovers, so here's some recipes that my family loves...

-Turkey and Cranberry Quesadillas
-Butternut Squash Soup, thin out my squash recipe with some broth
-Turkey Soup (and don't forget any extra gravy or stuffing-according to my mom)
-Cranberry Yogurt: yogurt w/ cranberry sauce mixed in and topped with toasted walnuts (pictured above)
-Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal: cooked oats, roasted pumpkin puree, toasted pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice (pictured below)...

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

-Toss leftover veggies (brussels sprouts, carrots, string beans) and stuffing with some rice or pasta and bake with a little parmesan cheese on top
-Potato or Squash Pancakes
-Add a few eggs to a mixture of stuffing, squash, finely chopped veggies, cranberry sauce, etc., and make your own Thanksgiving Veggie Burger

Be creative, almost anything goes with these versatile flavors!

  1. Your pumpkin pie oatmeal looks fabulous, I need to try adding pumpkin seeds and cranberries to mine. I think you'll like my version of Pumpkin Pie & Peanut Butter Oatmeal. I have some fresh cranberries in the fridge though so I'll add them to my oats tomorrow, thanks for the tip!

    VeggieGirl: Thanks so much! I've always loved your site for vegan inspiration (you'll be glad to hear the yogurt above is soy), I can't believe you're visiting mine as well!
