Vegan Thanksgiving Recipe Guide!



Later this week, homes across the US will be celebrating a day of gratitude with the Thanksgiving holiday!  Yummy Plants has created a special vegan Thanksgiving Recipes section to share some delicious vegan menu ideas.  We’ve featured vegan versions of old favorites like Pumpkin Pie, Herb Stuffing, and Whipped Potatoes with Gravy, as well some exciting new dishes like Kamut Berries with Porcini Mushrooms and Butternut Squash. 


Whether it’s your first Thanksgiving following a plant-based diet, or you’d just like to have a more veggie-focused celebration, these vegan Thanksgiving recipes give you some super yummy vegan menu options.  Thanks so much to the Jazzy Vegetarian, Dr. Joel Furhman, Great Sage restaurant, Calafia restaurant, and Robin Robertson, for sharing their vegan Thanksgiving recipes with the Yummy Plants community!

Alexandra Jamieson, author of Vegan Cooking for Dummies and Living Vegan for Dummies, offers this advice: “Thanksgiving traditions center on sharing the bounty of autumn’s harvest with loved ones. Whether you’re making your first plant-based feast or just including more vegan options for a new veggie friend, make the meal easier by practicing a couple of the new recipes early. Choose a couple recipes that can be made the day before, so you’re not overwhelmed on the big day. Seasonal vegetables offer color, delicious flavors, and can be made simply, taking the pressure off of fancy preparation. Try to enjoy the process of creating a healthy feast and share the love of cooking.”

It is so easy to create a delicious plant-based Thanksgiving dinner.  Enjoy creating your own vegan Thanksgiving traditions!
