Thanksgiving can be a stressful time for everybody (I’ll take “Unsolicited Questions About My Relationship Status’ for $200, Alex), but it’s especially tough when everyone around the table has different food preferences and dietary restrictions. I mean, you’d need a full repertoire of vegan Thanksgiving recipes, Whole30 eats, and DASH-friendly dishes to make everyone happy these days.
If you don’t do turkey, buttery mashed potatoes, and cream-based green bean casserole, though, don’t sweat. There are PLENTY of vegan Thanksgiving recipes out there that are just as tasty, filling, and nutritious as their meat- and dairy-filled counterparts to add to your menu. Whether you’re catering a full vegan feast or you just want to offer a wider array of options, these fall-themed vegan recipes will fit seamlessly into your spread. From naturally plant-based staples like roasted Brussels sprouts and colorful fall salads to vegan-ified versions of the classics (the lentil Wellington is no joke!), I promise you won’t feel like you’re missing out.I’ve even got an umami-packed mushroom gravy that you’ll want to pour over everything (including straight into your mouth) and a vegan mac and cheese that’ll hook even non-vegans for you, too. Trust me, no one at your feast will ever hate on dairy alternatives again.
From the savory to the sweet, the following vegan Thanksgiving recipes (35 of them!) will satisfy all of your holiday cravings–and some are even paleo and gluten-free, too.
