(Main Thanksgiving post here.)
Just a quick pre-Thanksgiving update: Last night I stumbled on, cooked and ate this really special (like, serve-to-guests-for-the-holidays) butternut squash dish from Martha Stewart's site, not usually the first place I look for vegan recipes. Full of protein and fall flavors, and smells wonderful.
It's a little more involved than some of the dishes I post. For example, I had to make my own harissa. But it's worth it. (Harissa is a North African spice mix, and if you've never had it you should definitely try it. There's a link right in the recipe). I did simplify things by using pre-chopped squash (you can get it fresh or frozen) and canned chickpeas.
