A vegetarian side dish perfect for a Thanksgiving potluck. Pumpkin rice is simple to create with basic ingredients, but still has enough flavor to stand next to the turkey.

In the last 12+ years that I have lived in the US, I’ve gone to many Thanksgiving parties, but it wasn’t until last year that I hosted one in my house. Thanks to my dear family & friends, I didn’t really cook a lot — it was a pot luck dinner that we thoroughly enjoyed.
I wanted to post some vegetarian dishes that can be served as a main dish for vegetarians or as a side dish in the traditional turkey dinner. First up is a very simple Pumpkin Rice/ Arroz con Calabaza. Pumpkin happens to be in season this time of the year is associated with fall, so it makes perfect sense to cook or bake with it for Thanksgiving. I found this recipe in Saveur and liked the simplicity of the dish. It is a dish that can be whipped up in no time. It was mildly flavored and will go well with the other side dishes typically served at Thanksgiving dinner.Print
