For vegetarians (and vegans!), Thanksgiving can be kind of scary, what with the giant turkey carcass and sausage-ladden stuffings galore! But just because meat isn't on the menu doesn't have to mean missing out on the belly-filling festivities! These sweet potato and quinoa stuffed mushroom caps are just as filling as a hunk-o'-turkey and can be enjoyed by anyone around the dinner table, meat eaters or not.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
