If you’re hosting Thanksgiving and have a few vegans joining you to celebrate, finding something they can safely enjoy may seem impossible. As a vegan, I can tell you that every time I am served something that is more than an after-thought, I get a little excited. Your vegan guests will feel welcomed at your dinner if they know you took the time to make something more than a glorified side dish. And your meat-eating guests won’t feel slighted in the least.

You can make an entire vegan feast with the recipes below, or choose a few to supplement the menu you’ve planned.

Vegan Roast Stuffed with Mushrooms and Lentils

While you can always purchase a stuffed vegan loaf, this recipe brings the concept to a whole new level. Vegans and meat-eaters alike will enjoy this savory roast featuring tofu and lentils. Tender tofu surrounds a flavorful filling of sautéed mushrooms, spinach, and lentils. Chestnuts and cranberries give it a holiday feel. And unlike the store-bought kind, this one doesn’t skimp on the filling.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Shallots and Sunchokes

  • 1 lb Brussels Sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • ½ lb sunchokes, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 3 shallots, sliced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Almost nothing could be easier than this recipe. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until vegetables are well-coated with seasoning and oil. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes. Brussel sprouts should be caramelized, and sunchokes should be tender. Place in a large bowl or platter and serve warm.

Mom’s Stuffing Recipe Veganized

  • ½ cup or 1 stick of Earth Balance baking sticks
  • 1 package pre-seasoned stuffing cubes
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 2 tbsp poultry seasoning
  • Vegetable broth as needed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup roasted chestnuts (optional)
  • ½ cup chopped apples (optional)
  • ½ cup dried cranberries (optional)

Melt butter in a stockpot. My mom always started with a stockpot, so she could mix everything together and only use one pot. Sautee onions and celery until soft. Add seasoning and rest of ingredients. If stuffing seems dry, add vegetable broth. I like to make mine on the soupy side, so it doesn’t dry out during cooking. Place stuffing into a baking dish and bake for 40 minutes in a 350-degree oven.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Of course, you can serve mashed potatoes and make them vegan by using plenty of vegetable broth for flavor. But sometimes, when a meal is as carb-laden as the traditional Thanksgiving feast, I like to serve mashed cauliflower instead. Made with just 6 ingredients, this cauliflower swap is easy to make, and even easier to eat.

Vegetable Wellington

This is a great dish to bring when you are a guest at someone else’s Thanksgiving feast. Or serve the next day for visiting relatives. Once I stumbled upon this recipe, I couldn’t help but think up all the occasions I could serve it. You can even use it as an alternative main dish for your own Thanksgiving meal. Use store-bought vegan pie crust or puff pastry dough. Or make your own if you want to be super fancy.

Dinner Rolls

You can easily buy vegan dinner rolls, but if you want something a little extra, try this recipe for whole wheat vegan dinner rolls. Soft, fluffy, and delicious, these rolls are easy to make, and if by some chance you have leftovers, are great for breakfast with a little jam and vegan butter.

Vegan Gravy

I went for years without gravy until I found this recipe for vegan gravy. Let me rephrase. I went for years without good gravy until I found this recipe. Even better, this recipe is also fat-free. I know, it’s Thanksgiving, and probably not the lightest meal ever, but why not save some fat and calories where you can? Paired with cauliflower mash, you have a lighter version of one of the all-time favorite comfort foods.

Recipe for best vegan gravy ever.
