Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes. Mega Recipe Round-up.

Here is my annual recipe guide to help you host a healthy, happy, Vegan Thanksgiving feast!

A very vegan holiday. I remember my very first vegan Thanksgiving quite well. My homemade cranberry sauce was chilling in the fridge, my sweet potatoes were baking and caramelizing in the oven. I pulled my heavy, ice-covered Tofurky box out of the freezer and started reading the instructions, yanking out the box components. Some vegan "wishbones" and vegan gravy and that round firm Tofurky. I must say, I do love the Tofurky. But I haven't made one in a few years. I remember it baking up a tad dry. I slathered it in gravy and Dijon mustard sauce. My meal was pretty good, but in the end I just felt so satisfied to have celebrated an entire meal, cruelty free. I had such a light and happy heart. A vegan meal can be delicious, easy, fun and life-changing. If you have never done "vegan Thanksgiving" before, I high recommend you give it a try!

The categorized lists ahead include my personal favorite dishes featured here on my blog. Both traditional favorites (stuffing, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie galore) and a few less than traditional ideas as well..
