Best Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes & Menus from Top Food Blogs & Websites

by Sharon Nazarian - Big City Vegan on 5:31 pm

Thanksgiving can be challenging for vegans and omnivores alike. Food is such a huge part of the holiday and honoring family/cultural traditions is something that many hold dear.  It can be difficult to satisfy everyone, but hopefully these recipes and menu plans will make it easier.  

It’s easy to make outrageously delicious vegan meals that are hearty and nutritious.  Yes, there are vegan turkey meat analogue products on the market but you can also have a plant-based centerpiece along with side dishes and desserts without a meat substitute product. What’s more, done right, it won’t feel like your missing anything in terms of taste, satisfaction and nutrition!  

These blogs and websites have done a bang-up job of providing a plethora of ideas and recipes to make the vegan Thanksgiving meal just as exciting as any other.  With this resource, you can go full throttle, 100% vegan, or take some dishes to incorporate into your menu. 

If you’re able to celebrate with a all vegan Thanksgiving, you’ll be making a Happy Thanksgiving for all, including the turkeys!
