I have 9 of the Best Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes – Sick of Tofurky? Ya I thought so, you can have an amazing dinner with these vegan recipes. Okay, so I know that some people who are on a Vegan diet pretend that Thanksgiving doesn’t exist and therefore don’t eat a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. So, why do I have 9 of the best vegan Thanksgiving recipes? So that you can have a traditional Vegan Thanksgiving dinner like everyone else, IF you want to.
It is also for those people that have loved ones that eat a traditional dinner and they are expected to bring a dish to contribute to the meal that is vegan Maybe just so there will be something they can eat.
Some people on a vegan diet enjoy eating Tofurky in place of a turkey but I have some great alternatives for a vegan Thanksgiving turkey. I found that vegan stuffing in many different forms is a popular main dish in place of turkey. There are so many dishes that are naturally vegan if you just buy a pack of vegan butter. There is no reason you can’t have a nice dinner with sweet potatoes, cranberries, squash, rolls etc. Roasted cauliflower heads seem to be big right now, there is a great recipe for that here. You might like the Seitan roast if you haven’t ever tried it. Just don’t forget about the pumpkin and apple pies.
I want to wish you a happy Thanksgiving and hope you enjoy your vegan Thanksgiving dinner this year.
Please note – there is a popular pin for a whole cauliflower with a sauce on it that keeps getting pinned on Pinterest. It was incorrectly labeled as Vegan; it actually has cheese on it. #4 is the closest Vegan recipe we could find to replace it. Sorry for the inconvenience.
