It’s finally here! The ULTIMATE Vegan Thanksgiving Feast- an epic collection of our favorite vegan Thanksgiving recipes. From healthy to indulgent, sweet, savory, gluten-free, and everything in between, we’ve got you covered for the best vegan Thanksgiving ever.
Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. It means the weather’s cooling down and Christmas is just around the corner. Of course, the real reason I love Thanksgiving is because it’s a food holiday and I love to eat!
Now that I’m a vegan, I love creating new traditions- like celebrating Thanks-Living with friends where we eat giant plates of plant-based food and leave turkeys off the table! This Ultimate Vegan Thanksgiving Menu includes two hearty, delicious main courses, a bounty of sides, and two perfectly flaky pie recipes by friend Josie of Sugar & Satire. If you love vegan baking and reading the work funny, talented writers, you will love her blog!
We wanted to do a collaboration like this last year but between our busy schedules, time got away from us. So we are extra excited to present this vegan Thanksgiving feast! I hope you love the recipes as much as we loved making (and eating!) them. Shall we dig in?
1. BBQ Lentil Loaf (Vegan + GF)
Every vegan Thanksgiving spread needs an epic main course to build the spread around. This BBQ Glazed Lentil Loaf is the perfect dish! It’s hearty, flavorful, perfectly spiced with a delicious texture. If you love BBQ and food so good, you can eat three slices with your hands over the kitchen sink without batting an eye, this is the recipe for you!
2. Vegan Sausage and Mushroom Stuffing
This vegan sausage and mushroom stuffing is the perfect traditional stuffing recipe, perfected with plant-based ingredients and a few extra delicious elements thrown in. Think dried cherries, toasted pecans, and TONS of savory flavors. This vegan stuffing recipe is perfect smothered in gravy or by itself!
3. Cream Cheese Stuffed Cornbread Muffins (1-Bowl)
This 1-Bowl Vegan Cream Cheese Stuffed Cornbread is one of my absolute favorite recipes I’ve ever created. It’s a sweet, moist cornbread in perfectly wonderful muffin form with a mound of vegan cream cheese in the center. You’ll want to bake a double batch of these for your vegan Thanksgiving spread for sure!
4. Best Ever Mushroom Gravy (Vegan + GF)
This vegan, gluten-free mushroom gravy has SO MUCH FLAVOR y’all. That’s why I call it “Slap Yo Mama” gravy (don’t ask, it’s a Southern thing!) Full of tender mushrooms and fresh herbs, this is the perfect gravy to cover every inch of your vegan Thanksgiving plate! Throw in a large handful of chopped walnuts while you’re at it!
5. Creamy Green Bean Casserole (Vegan + GF)
You’ll love everything about this Vegan Green Bean Casserole! It’s saucy, crunchy, and SO easy to make.
6. Portobello Lentil Shepherd’s Pie (Vegan + GF)
Portobello Lentil Shepherd’s Pie in a rich, saucy, red wine gravy topped with fluffy, buttery mashed potatoes. *Drools on screen.*
7. Perfect Vegan Pumpkin Pie
There are a lot of vegan pumpkin pie recipes our there, but THIS vegan pumpkin pie is the best! Rich, perfectly spiced pumpkin in a tender, flaky crust. Vegan magic at it’s finest by Sugar & Satire.
8. 15 Minute Cranberry Chia Jam (Refined Sugar-free)
Vegan Thanksgiving is too special for canned cranberry sauce! Liven up your table this year with a vibrant cranberry orange chia jam. So good, you’ll be eating it with a spoon!
9. Pomegranate Persimmon Gem Lettuce Salad
This Pomegranate Persimmon Salad is light, colorful, and full of fall flavors. It’s the perfect way to lighten up your vegan Thanksgiving menu and brighten your table spread!
10. Vegan Chai Spiced Apple Pie
A delicious twist on an old favorite. This Chai Spiced Apple Pie recipe by Sugar & Satire can be made into mini personal pies (I’ll take four please!) or baked into one regular sized pie. (I still want the whole thing!)
