Take the stress out of holiday meal planning with this easy vegan Thanksgiving menu! I’ve covered all the bases from appetizers to dessert. With these recipes you’re guaranteed to have a vegan Thanksgiving dinner everyone will enjoy.
Every year I start thinking about Thanksgiving as soon as Halloween is over. Actually, that’s not the truth. I start thinking about it in early October. Okay, actually September. What can I say? I love Thanksgiving!
There are certain classic recipes that everyone expects to see on the holiday table, like mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. And others may be family favorites or regional classics.
I’m sharing with you the menu I plan on making. Maybe you’ll decide to make all the dishes or just a few. But either way, I hope I can help make planning your holiday dinner a little easier.
So let’s start our vegan Thanksgiving dinner with some appetizers!
First of all, we need something cute and festive. This Turkey Guacamole Dip from Cara of Fork & Beans is just perfect!
And we can also serve some delicious cheese and crackers for our guests to much on. I highly recommend you pick up some Miyoko’s Kitchen cheeses from your local specialty shop or online. I like to place a large order and have it shipped to me. Then grab some Mary’s Gone Crackers. They are my favorite.
At this point your friends and family may be ready for a holiday cocktail. How about a Roasted Apple Tom Collins from Becky of Glue & Glitter? It sure looks delicious to me! And if you’re in the mood for something else, check out the amazing collection of beverage recipes Becky has created.
It’s time to move on to the main event of this vegan Thanksgiving!
I know what you’re thinking: what are we going to serve instead of a turkey? I present to you this Mushroom-Walnut Meatless Loaf from Melissa of Vegan Huggs! With that glaze, I don’t know how anyone can resist going back for seconds.
Okay, I was a little excited about sharing the main course with you. But perhaps your guests would like a salad with their meal. I really like this Pomegranate and Apple Kale Salad because it’s delicious and adds a lot of color to your plate. Plus it only takes a few minutes to make and can be prepared ahead of time.
Now we need some Mashed Potatoes and Onion Gravy from Sarah of Fried Dandelions. Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without it.
And speaking of classics, we need some Maple Cinnamon Cranberry Pear Sauce from Jenn of Veggie Inspired. Isn’t the color beautiful?
My family loves Brussels sprouts, and it’s not Thanksgiving without them. I like to throw in another vegetable and serve Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Butternut Squash
Now this next dish may seem a little less traditional, but trust me, you’re going to want this on your table. May I present to you, Smoky Mac Stuffed Sweet Potatoes from Jackie of Vegan Yack Attack!
Did you save room for dessert?
If you want to go with a traditional dessert with some flair, I suggest trying No-Bake Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake from Dianne of Dianne’s Vegan Kitchen.
And don’t forget to give back this holiday season to those less fortunate. I like to contribute to my local food bank. And I also Adopt a Turkey from Farm Sanctuary.
Don’t forget to pin for later!
