60+ Tasty Recipes for the Ultimate Vegan Thanksgiving Feast (2024)

60+ Tasty Recipes for the Ultimate Vegan Thanksgiving Feast (1)
Thanksgiving is right around the corner! I have no idea how these holidays always creep up on me. This year, I decided I would make sure to plan ahead. To help you plan ahead as well, here are a few tips to have a successful vegan thanksgiving feast!

What do I need to have a successful Thanksgiving?

  1. Plan a menu!
    Write down a list of which recipes you plan on making if you are doubling the recipe, and what ingredients are needed. Take note of any ideas you have whether it be place settings, music, recipes, or how you will make sure Uncle Bobby stays happy the whole time.60+ Tasty Recipes for the Ultimate Vegan Thanksgiving Feast (2)
  2. Cook confidently.
    Give your recipes a test run a few days or even weeks in advance. I'm all for trying out new recipes but if you are hosting a big Thanksgiving dinner then this isn't the time. Cookies, salads, sauces, and most soups are pretty straightforward and you can probably get away with not testing those out first. Test any new, big, or complicated recipes out first though. There's nothing worse than trying out a recipe the day of and it failing completely or finding out that the cooking time isn't really 30 minutes but 3 hours!
  3. Cookahead!
    If you can make an entire recipe the day before Thanksgiving then do that! Dips, apple chips, and some salads can easily be made in advance. If that is just not possible, then at least try to do some prep work ahead of time. Cut up veggies and fruits that you might need for the next day. Put them in Ziploc bags and keep them in the fridge to keep veggies fresh and crisp for the next day.60+ Tasty Recipes for the Ultimate Vegan Thanksgiving Feast (3)
  4. Know everyone's dietary restrictions, allergies, or preferences.
    Be sure to double-check if anyone has nut or gluten allergies. Ask if others are gluten-free vegan, raw vegan, paleo, or oil-free. Plan to at least have 1 appetizer, 2 sides, 1 entree, and 1 dessert that everyone can eat. Being vegan you definitely build some sympathy for those who can't eat what's being served. I once went to a BBQ where all I was able to eat was watermelon. Even the salads were slathered in mayonnaise and had bacon bits. Not fun.
  5. Ask and accepthelp.
    When most people ask if they can bring something, they aren't asking just to be polite. Most people like bringing dishes to Thanksgiving. Accept their help! Ask others to bring an appetizer, salad, side, or dessert. Anything that doesn't need to be heated up again in the oven. There's nothing worse than having 5 people bring 5 dishes that all still need to be baked. Unless you have 5 ovens in your kitchen...then this obviously doesn't apply to you :)
  6. Don't depend on help.
    This might seem like the exact opposite of #4 but let's be honest, people forget. Just because Sally said she would bring 2 salads and that you don't need to make any, doesn't mean it will happen. Life sometimes gets in the way. Sally's twin toddlers locked her out of the house and now she can't bring a salad or she got no sleep the night before so she simply forgot. It happens. Sure, everyone could manage without a salad if they needed to but have a backup plan just in case. Have some extra lettuce and veggies in the fridge just in case you need to make a last-minute salad.60+ Tasty Recipes for the Ultimate Vegan Thanksgiving Feast (4)
  7. Start cooking early.
    Most guests and family members won't mind waiting for dinner, especially if you have enough appetizers. However, no one wants to wait until 10 pm to start eating dinner. Give yourself plenty of time to make the recipes, have a glass of wine, and get dressed at some point (showering wouldn't hurt either).
  8. More is better than less.
    Thanksgiving is basicallythe holiday of leftovers. Most people want to take a slice of pie (or an entire pie) home with them and there is nothing better than turning mashed sweet potatoes into potato pancakesthe next day. That's why it's so important to make slightly more than you think you might actually need. Better to have leftovers than hungry friends and family :)
