just in time for thanksgiving, these vegan recipes will get you through holiday season

Posted by on

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.

All photo credits are from the recipe's websites; because my homemade photos do not do these recipes justice. If you like what you see click the link to learn how to make it!

appetizers

spinach artichoke dip

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.

polenta fries, with tomato sauce dip

An adult twist on a childhood favorite!

soup

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.

salad

shredded kale salad, with vegan pecan “parmesan” crumbs

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.

sides

green bean casserole

A vegan-friendly version of a Thanksgiving tradition. Everything, including the vegan cream of mushroom soup and caramelized onions, are made from scratch!

stuffing

Hearty and delicious, even your non-veg guests will want to eat this up.

maple glazed sweet potatoes

candied sweet potatoes

I have never been crazy about whipped yams with marshmallows on top. I much prefer something a little more nourishing with natural sweeteners.

root vegetables au gratin

It’s like a gluten-free, vegan lasagna.

spicy mac and cheese

Made with cashews and chilies, a surprisingly unstoppable duo

 

dessert

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!
