A Three-Course Vegetarian Menu to Satisfy Any Carnivore
Even the most hardcore carnivore is going to have a hard time resisting savory-sweet pumpkin risotto, crispy roasted Brussels sprouts, and creamy caramel pots de crème, no? We got to know LA-based cookbook author Virginie Degryse—founder of the fantastic food site Crave and Cook, known for healthy, but super tasty family-style menus—while working with her last year on our holiday cooking series. This year, she’s developed the ultimate vegetarian holiday feast: It’s as simple as it is insanely delicious.
Just when we thought we’d reached our threshold for pumpkin-flavored-everything, this risotto made us believers again. The savory combination of onions, wine, pumpkin, and Parmesan is beyond. For an added treat, Virginie suggests garnishing with maple glazed pecans if you can find them.
