There are so many recipes I love to make during this week-long Thanksgiving holiday celebration. But one thing I think everyone can agree on is the pumpkin pie dessert.
Find the Pie Recipe for You. And over the years here on HHL I have made a few different vegan pumpkin pies. One with a homemade gingersnap crust, one with only four ingredients, a no-bake dream made with walnuts, one with a sour cream swirl and a few more. Ahead, pick out the pie recipe of your dreams.
And I have also shared many recipes that are inspired by pumpkin pie and pumpkin-spice flavors. Both savory and sweet. So here are 21 of my favorite pumpkin pie and pumpkin pie inspired vegan recipes for your Thanksgiving holiday. Because no matter what is for dinner, dessert is a must!..
If we took a holiday-ay. In my house, and probably yours, Thanksgiving has become more than just one meal on one day. It is a sprawling feast that includes family, friends, food and a seriously cozy, feel-good departure from your "normal life." Holiday time. It is a happiness-infused holiday where you can sit back and take in all the blessings in your life. Blessings like family, jobs, homes, health, joy, pets, kids, love and of course delicious food. No matter what is on your table, there is always something to feel gratititude for in your life. Now is the time to close your eyes and soak that in. Focus on the positive and shake away anything negative swirling around your busy mind.
Food. Vegan Food. Because I agree with Isa (see quote below), vegans are kinda obsessed with Thanksgiving. We have truly taken back this "turkey day" and turned it into an opportunity to spread a message of compassion for all living creatures. We come joyfully into homes, unloading our vegan marshmallow-topped yam casseroles, vegan butter-topped mashed potatoes, amazing veggies or all sorts, creative side dishes, vegan spins on stuffing and dreamy, amazing vegan desserts.
We love Thanksgiving. As Isa Chandra hilariously says on CNN's Eatocracy, (so true!)..
"I guess I should also mention that vegans love Thanksgiving. I don’t know why. They love it more than anything. And they will be happy to help you in the kitchen until the cows come home (to the farm sanctuary, of course.) Honestly, you could go get a pedicure and they will make the whole darn thing."
So. Lets all make some vegan dessert first. Because pies can totally be made 1-2 days ahead of time for a less-stressful Thursday. Vegan Pumpkin Pie for all..
