Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

Shepherd’s pie for the main course. Traditionally, this dish contains meat and vegetables. But lentils and mushrooms make this shepherd’s pie deliciously vegan. If your taste buds crave a little more, you can always improvise and add a colorful array of vegetables. Your family will surely want seconds.

No turkey stuffing. There will be no turkey in this stuffing. No matter what you choose for the main course, you can accompany it with a completely vegan walnut-apple stuffing. Your guests, both vegans and meat eaters, will enjoy this dish.

Tasty sides. The very thought of this red cabbage, apple, carrot and ginger slaw made my mouth water. Best of all, it only takes about 15 minutes to make! This recipe is courtesy of a vegan celeb.

Sauces. Whether you choose mushroom gravy or cranberry chutney, you must also try this easy apple-cranberry relish. It will go great with the stuffing or with your main course.

Vegan Dessert. What’s a holiday meal without dessert? Try this chocolate chip cookie dough blizzard from Oh She Glows. And yes, it is vegan!
