50 Vegan Thanksgiving Dishes to Please a Crowd

  • 2.6K

Thanksgiving is one holiday that can be puzzling both for vegans (“What the heck are we going to eat?!”) and non-vegans (“What the heck are we going to serve our vegan guests?!”). The search for vegan Thanksgiving dishes and recipes heats up on the internet in the weeks leading to the biggest meal of the year.

Luckily, the vegan blogosphere has plenty of ideas for every part of a good Thanksgiving dinner. Today I’m going to share 50+ vegan Thanksgiving recipes from other vegan or vegan-friendly websites to save you time and effort prepping your perfect feast.

50 vegan Thanksgiving recipes to please a crowd | vegan Thanksgiving | vegan Thanksgiving recipes | vegan Thanksgiving tips | vegan Thanksgiving main course | vegan Thanksgiving side dishes | vegan Thanksgiving dessertsThis is going to be the sixth Thanksgiving that I’ll be celebrating as a vegan, so I am confident to say that a vegan Thanksgiving table can be just as abundant and delicious as a non-vegan one. Before you know it, your belly will be just as full after this big holiday meal – and if you’re the host, your guests might even forget that the whole spread was vegan!

(Please note that not all websites linked in my list are 100% vegan – however, all recipes below are vegan.)
