1. Vegan ‘Turkey’

Mains

Made from seitan roast, which is a plant-based meat alternative that’s made completely out of hydrated and cooked vital wheat gluten flour and tastes just like roasted meat! Plan to start preparing this dish at least one day before the day you plan on serving it.

2. Vegan Mushroom Gravy

Condiments

Cremini mushrooms are the star of this vegan mushroom gravy, which goes perfectly with the vegan turkey. It’s also versatile enough to go with mashed potatoes, bread, or mix in with another recipe.

5. Vegan Butternut Squash Mac ‘N Cheese

12. Vegan Candied Yams

Sides

Organic brown sugar, spices, and a splash of orange juice give these sweet potatoes a decadently sweet flavor. You can have them as a dessert with vegan coconut ice cream, a side dish, or a snack.

See the recipe HERE

 

13. Vegan Brussels Sprouts

Sides

Brussels sprouts are often overlooked and many people shy away from them. But, not only are they high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, these sprouts are caramelized with balsamic vinegar with notes of fig, molasses, cherry, chocolate, or prune. No bacon needed!

See the recipe HERE

 

14. Vegan Corn Casserole

Mains

Corn casserole is one of my all-time favorites and in my opinion, one of the easiest and fastest holiday dishes you can make. Not to mention it tastes great! It’s fluffy and slightly crunchy from the whole-kernel corn. Dairy-free yogurt and plant-based butter are used to make this vegan-approved!

15. Vegan Roasted Carrots

Sides

This recipe takes just 30 minutes to finish and only 7 ingredients are needed to make it. The carrots will be soft with a roasted flavor and slightly naturally sweetened with maple syrup.

16. Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms

Appetizers/Sides

Stuffed mushrooms make a great snack, appetizer, or smaller side dish. Perfect for a party with finger food to take a break from all the sweets.

17. Vegan 10-Minute Pumpkin Butter

Condiments

This pumpkin butter is incredibly easy and better for you as it’s sweetened with coconut sugar and maple syrup. You can make it in the microwave or stovetop. Lasts up to 2 weeks.

18. Vegan Sweet Potato Rolls

Sides

No Thanksgiving meal is complete with rolls. The best thing is you can freeze these to have whenever you want, or if you want to make your meals ahead of time. So, you could consider doubling or tripling the recipe so you’ll have plenty to pull from whenever you have company.

See the recipe HERE

 

19. Vegan Butternut Squash Soup

Sides

Butternut squash is my go-to fall comfort soup. It’s good for weight loss and is so creamy and tasty. It’s also surprisingly filling from just one bowl. You could serve this for lunch and have the other meals for dinner or have it as an option for a minimal Thanksgiving.

See the recipe HERE

 

20. Vegan Pumpkin Soup

Sides

Another great soup option to go all in on fall vegetables. I think this soup would work well in an Instant Pot. And, an immersion blender will make your life a whole lot easier when cooking soups like this and many other recipes!

21. Vegan French Toast Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast

You can refrigerate this French Toast Casserole overnight and bake it the next morning to make things easy peasy. You’ll enjoy a touch of sweetness with your morning coffee. And, it’s something the whole family could enjoy!

22. Vegan Classic Pumpkin Pie

Desserts

I can’t imagine anyone not liking pumpkin pie. It’s one of those desserts that is not that sweet but it’s soft and chewy. Pair it with your favorite vegan ice cream or vegan whipped cream and you’ll be in heaven!

23. Vegan Pecan Pie Cheesecake

Desserts

This recipe looks absolutely amazing! Normally, there’s a process to making really good cheesecake, but this recipe only has a few steps, and waiting for it to come out of the freezer is the hardest part. If you love pecans, cashews, coconut milk, and oats, you’ll love this recipe!

See the recipe HERE

 

24. Vegan Pecan Pie

Desserts

This pecan pie has 1/4 of the sugar that a traditional pie has in it. There’s no corn syrup, which is great, and it’s gluten-free. It goes to show that creating healthy dishes doesn’t have to be hard at all.

25. Vegan Apple Pie

Desserts

I’ve followed Martha Stewart for years, and I love her recipes, crafting, etc. This apple pie is made with natural cane sugar, but I think you could swap it for organic brown sugar if you wanted. The ingredients are minimal, and actually, apple pie is not as hard as other desserts. The longest part of it is peeling the apples, so you could get a helper to make it go a little faster.

26. Vegan Molten Chocolate Pie

Desserts

Lava cake combined with brownies? Yes, please! This is an alternative to the traditional chocolate cream pie. And, I wanted to add it to give you a little something different for any chocolate lovers at your Thanksgiving table this year.

See the recipe HERE

 

27. Vegan Sweet Potato Pie

Desserts

Sweet potato pie isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. But, for those of you who are, you’re going to love this recipe! Maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a tasty crust are a win-win!

See the recipe HERE

 

28. Vegan Rice Krispie Treats

Snacks

A recipe that kids can also enjoy. The difference is, it’s made with brown rice cereal, almond butter, and coconut oil. So, you’ll get fiber, protein, and healthy fats!

29. Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte

Drinks

You can’t go wrong with a good pumpkin spice latte. Like the Starbucks drink, but better. Actually, I find the Starbucks version a bit too sweet and sickly. This recipe is only sweetened with maple syrup. So, if you are sensitive to drinking too much sugar, you won’t have that problem with this latte!

See the recipe HERE

 

30. Vegan Mocktail Punch

Drinks

Of course, I had to include a punch drink for further celebrations, or even on Black Friday. This mocktail is friendly for those under 21 since there’s no alcohol in it and only has ginger beer. It’s definitely a fruity and warmingly spicy festive drink.
