40 Fab Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes
Hello & Happy Monday!!
With Thanksgiving in a few days, I thought I would put together the best of the best in vegan holiday eats to better help you navigate plant based recipes to feature with friends and family! While Thanksgiving is ubiquitous for turkey or Tofurky, there are a myriad of other concepts you can embrace for the holidays to put a modern spin on the traditional Thanksgiving dinner!
My favorite part about the holidays besides gathering with friends and family?!
All the sides!
I personally love having a bite of everything and get bored wth main dishes, so sides/apps are my go to! My approach to all plant based dishes is to combine elements of sweet and savory when possible as it adds diversity in flavor, and always aim to use minimal sugar with deriving it naturally from fruit.
What I admire about all of these recipes is that they are straightforward, pack tons of flavor, less sugar and fat, and more nutrients than your typical non vegan versions
From Apps to entrees, soups, salads, desserts and even brunch.This list is all encompassing and will cater to everyone at your dinner table this year!
