This Veggie Turkey Platter is the perfect appetizer for a healthy plant-based Thanksgiving! You'll increase your family's vegetable intake and it is so easy to whip up. You'll only need a few and easy to find ingredients and some creativity to make the cute avocado turkey.
Veggie platters have been a staple of big celebrations or gathering for many generations back and they are not going anywhere. Friends and family love them and they can be a great way to add some gorgeous colors to a not so colorful dinner party. The basic formula is very simple. You'll need one or a couple of dips, and a variety of "dippers", in this case, vegetable sticks.
The dips can be anything from a classic hummus, a baba ganoush, or some guacamole (like in this recipe). All of these take almost no time or effort to prepare and are loved by (almost) everyone. When it comes to the veggies, any would work (as long as they can be eaten raw). Peppers, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cherry tomatoes, radishes, asparagus, or mushrooms would be perfect!
There's no denying my immense love for avocado. It's one of my favorite foods in the world and for that reason, a classic guacamole is one of my favorite dips. This guacamole recipe is very straightforward and simple. You can use it for a casual nachos and guac appetizer, as a topping for your lentil tacos, or as a topping for a fully loaded sweet potato. It's so good and creamy, you'll be making it time and time again.
Will you give this Veggie Turkey Platter a try? It will be a big hit!
