Vegetarian Friendly Thanksgiving Recipes

I've been a vegetarian for 20 years, two thirds of my life.  I like to pride myself in being an easy vegetarian guest.  I am not picky and am fill up on sides, assuming the stuffing isn't filled with gizzards and brussles sprouts with bacon.  Also, assuming that the veggie dishes are substantial enough to tide me over until second dinner.  I have hosted Thanksgiving, both vegetarian and not, and tried lots of recipes that will please everyone including meat lovers.  Today I'm sharing ten of my favorite vegetarian Thanksgiving recipes (a few are even vegan).  Guests will certainly be asking to take leftovers.
