I love, love, love this idea for making turkey the star at your table this Thanksgiving!  Not only is it animal free, but it's full of veggies and fun!  Family Fun magazine is the creative mind behind this genius veggie platter.  I am definitely making this as an appetizer for my mom's Thanksgiving table this year.

To make it, line a plate with lettuce leaves.  Layer on broccoli, bell peppers, and baby carrots.  Include a bowl of your favorite dip (hummus for me!), plus mushrooms around the bottom.  Add a mushroom cap with peppercorn eyes and bell pepper wings, feet, and facial features.
