Very Frustrating!
Ok, first off let me say I love my husband dearly, but, he can be such a pain in the butt!

Ugh...Ok, he is the pickiest eater I have EVER known! I'm trying to think of something I can cook for Thanksgiving that he will eat...My family all gets together at my mom and dad's house and my sister, sister in law, and I each bring a dish...I used to bring green bean casserole, but, he won't eat it, then, last year, I made a really good potato casserole (the kind with the corn flakes) that he also refused to eat...He won't eat anything that contains potatoes (on very rare occasions he'll eat a couple french fries or tater tots, but that's it), he doesn't like stuffing or gravy, he doesn't like anything with the word "casserole" in it, and there are other things he refuses to eat just because he thinks it "looks gross"...GAH!

It's also important to note we are vegetarians...

We have a huge variety of food at Thanksgiving but he's so picky he eats hardly any of it! We have corn, mashed potatoes and gravy (plus a delicious vegetarian gravy my dad makes), stuffing (my dad makes a wonderful vegetarian stuffing as well), cauliflower with cheese, a vegetable tray, salad, rolls, cranberry sauce, my mom makes a ham for the meat eaters...I'm sure there's more but I can't think of the rest...lol...Anyway, all hubby will eat is the salad, rolls, corn, and cauliflower with cheese. I want to bring something he will eat and every time I ask him what he'd like me to make, his response is, "I don't know."

I have been looking at all sorts of vegetarian recipe sites for ideas but most of what I have found is potato based or casseroles!

My mom and I were joking that if I found a casserole that I think hubby might like I'd tell him it was called a "combination" instead of casserole.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has any vegetarian (or simply non-meat) Thanksgiving type recipes they wouldn't mind sharing that don't contain potatoes and aren't casseroles...lol...It doesn't have to be an entree, just like a side dish or appetizer...I'm driving myself crazy trying to find something and I'm about ready to give up and tell hubby too damn bad...lol

Thanks!!
