This year I wanted to create more balance in our Thanksgiving meal with some vegetarian options. I wanted to come up with a side dish recipe that could be served at a holiday table and have as much flavor, spice and fanfare as all the other dishes being served.

Our cauliflower and pecan stuffing checks all those boxes for a delicious side dish. Unlike some vegetarian dishes that can be a little lackluster, this recipe will not disappoint even the pickiest meat eater at the table.
