Post updated in November 2019 to add some new and popular recipes (for a total of 11 recipes). Therecipe (pictured above) was swapped out for the newer Sage & Garlic Pecan Roasted Vegetables recipe (below).

The All-In-One Thanksgiving Meal

Roasted Vegan Thanksgiving Bowl

Easy peasy vegan Thanksgiving in a bowl! Roasted veggies, toasty pecans, mashed potatoes, and easy vegan gravy, all in 1 bowl and ready in less than 1 hour. Serves 2-3.

Main Courses

How To Cook A Tofurky Roast

This Tofurky “how to” guide will help you get the most out of your roast. This post covers how to cook a Tofurky Roast (thawed or frozen), make vegan gravy from the “drippings”, serve the roast, and how to heat and use up leftovers.

The Ultimate Vegan Thanksgiving Loaf with Cranberry Glaze

This loaf offers the perfect savoury-sweet contrast of the tart-but-sweet cranberry glaze and the hearty loaf. This holiday loaf is vegan, gluten-free, soy free, and can be easily made nut free by omitting the walnuts.

Side Dishes

Sage & Garlic Pecan Roasted Vegetables

A chic and simple side dish of roasted potatoes, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, and pecans in a sage-y garlic butter. Gluten Free.

Vegan Vegetable Walnut Stuffing

An easy recipe for classic veganized stuffing with a deliciously crisp golden-brown top and a perfectly soft center. Finely chopped walnuts, nutritional yeast and mushrooms add depth and create a hearty, flavourful side dish.

Date Candied Sweet Potatoes

A healthy twist on sweet potato casserole. Gluten free.

Simple Herb Roasted Potatoes

A just-as-easy alternative to mashed potatoes! (Don’t let that stop you from slathering them in vegan gravy though!) Gluten Free.


Vegan Mushroom Gravy

This vegan mushroom gravy is deep, flavourful, and luscious. Sliced cremini mushrooms, minced onion and garlic, vegetable broth, soy sauce, and miso make this vegan gravy hearty and robust.

Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Tangy-sweet cranberry sauce is a holiday essential! Homemade cranberry sauce tastes so much better than store-bought and takes just 15 minutes and 3 ingredients to make!


Rustic Oat Crisp Pumpkin Pie

Traditional pumpkin pie flavour with a simple, no-fail oat crisp crust! (Or see our Vegan Pumpkin Pie with Caramel Walnut Sauce + Flaky Vegan Pie Crust Tutorial.)

Healthy Pumpkin Pie Parfait with Coconut Whip

Looking for a lighter dessert? This one’s for you! Creamy, cool pumpkin spice parfaits are the perfect way to wrap up your Thanksgiving feast! Gluten Free & Soy Free.
