I secretly LOVE Tofurkey, it’s a guilty pleasure of mine. What I don’t love about it is how processed it is, and how much soya in contains. Here is my vegan holiday recipe roundup to carry us into the holiday season- free of animal products, soya, and if you wish, easily substitutable to make gluten-free options.

Mmmmm... I love that this receipt is heavy on the veggies, and doesn’t use artificial cheese substitutes like Diya. No matter how hard I try to like it, Diya tastes like plastic to me.
An adult twist on a childhood favorite!
I have been following Smitten Kitchen for years on Instagram. Every recipe looks better than the last. I love Indian flavours, but realize they are not for everyone, this soup is mild enough for even blandest of eaters.
Garlicky citrus dressing, and a crumble made with pecans, nutritional yeast, and cranberries on a bed of kale. This is one of those salads that tastes so good it’s hard to believe it’s healthy. And, I can never get enough nutritional yeast.
Although tofurkey holds a special place in my heart and stomach, lentil loaf is my go-to vegan, gluten-free, and soya free option.
A vegan-friendly version of a Thanksgiving tradition. Everything, including the vegan cream of mushroom soup and caramelized onions, are made from scratch!
Hearty and delicious, even your non-veg guests will want to eat this up.
I have never been crazy about whipped yams with marshmallows on top. I much prefer something a little more nourishing with natural sweeteners.
It’s like a gluten-free, vegan lasagna.
Made with cashews and chilies, a surprisingly unstoppable duo
I am especially excited to get my pumpkin season fix with this vegan pumpkin cheesecake. I’m a beginner baker, and I love how simple this recipe is, and how delicious it looks!
