We are just over a week out from Thanksgiving. Are you ready for it? Fall didn’t hit me until the end of October this year, when the weather started dipping below freezing at night (too soon!) and I suddenly realized with my entire being that it was definitely not summer anymore. Not surprisingly, Thanksgiving is sneaking up on me too, which is why I’ll be keeping it extra low-key. Here are 7 of my favorite vegan Thanksgiving recipes that are all about keeping life easy and stress-free…
My go-to salad for guests? Sweet Potato Salad with Tempeh and Maple Mustard Dressing (it’s always a crowd-pleaser).
I love brussels sprouts and this 20-minute Creamy Vegan Brussels Sprouts Coleslaw is simple, fresh, and totally crave-worthy. Feel free to add chickpeas for extra protein!
Freezer-Friendly Pumpkin Soup. Roast veggies, combine with a handful of ingredients, serve (or freeze and defrost later, if you’d like to tackle some of your holiday cooking in advance). Butternut squash or sweet potato would be delicious here.
A Stuffed Butternut Squash with Quinoa Salad makes the most beautiful Thanksgiving centerpiece.
I say let someone else bake the pumpkin and pecan pies this year. 😉 This 10-Minute Stovetop Apple Crisp is vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and 100% delicious. Serve it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream (creamy cashew or coconut milk gets my vote).
