The mushroom and farro pie, above, is only the beginning. There are braised artichokes and potatoes with a roasted garlic gravy. It does feel a bit like a collection of sides, with no real standout as the main course (we're guessing the farro pie plays that role), and filling the table with almost a dozen dishes seems like a lot of work. Salads and vegetables can be more time consuming (for the hands-on part, anyway) than a turkey.
We're curious what you vegetarians are planning for Thanksgiving. Is this kind of menu helpful? Or do you plan a more hearty main dish? Either way, this slideshow offers some beautiful options to think about.
