The Ultimate Vegan Thanksgiving Menu

Plenty of our recipes on TryVeg are perfect for the holidays, and we’ve put together our favorite ones to create a perfect vegan Thanksgiving menu. Just choose a main course, some sides, and a selection of desserts and drinks for good measure. Or, hey, just load up a plate with as many of our delicious sides as you can. We know those are the best part of Thanksgiving, anyway!

As you’re thinking about what you’re grateful for, consider joining Compassion Over Killing’s Month of Compassion and Gratitude. We’re giving back and offering you an opportunity to do the same by making a matched donation to protect animals.
