Recipes for The Ultimate Vegan Thanksgiving Menu: From Meatless Main Courses to Dairy-Free Pies


Whether you’re planning an all meatless or vegan menu from soup to nuts or just want to find a recipe for amazingly creamy dairy-free mashed potatoes, do we have options for you. And not only are these plant-based Thanksgiving dishes delicious, they’re easy to prepare, too! No defrosting, basting, or spatchcocking necessary (whatever that means). We have all the tools you need to create an ultimate meatless and dairy-free Thanksgiving feast that your whole family will love. Go ahead and gobble gobble up! 

  1. Appetizers and Salads

    Every part of a Thanksgiving meal is important, but it all begins with the appetizers and starters. Whether you’re building a spectacular dairy-free cheese platter, tossing up a fresh and hearty salad, or passing around a platter of stuffed mushrooms, you’ll want to start your epic feast on a high note. Need inspiration on how to do that? We’ve got you covered.

  2. Stuffing

    Stuff a bell pepper, not a bird this Thanksgiving! From cornbread to quinoa, here are some amazing options for meat, dairy, and egg-free stuffings that should grace your holiday table.

  3. Breads

    Mmm … bread. Give your Thanksgiving feast a healthy dose of comfort carbs with our treasure trove of dairy and egg-free bread recipes! You’ll definitely need something to sop up your gravy and cranberry sauce with. Might we suggest a biscuit, roll, or artisan loaf for the job?

  4. Pies

    Let’s be real – this is everyone’s favorite part of Thanksgiving. Pie!! Aside from your classic pies (apple, pumpkin, pecan), we’ve got a plethora of other pies that are sure to please. Don’t believe us? Take a look for yourself!


  5. Other Desserts

    If you want to switch up your Thanksgiving dessert game a little (or if you don’t like pie … who doesn’t like pie?), here are some non-pie options you can share with everyone you love. If you want to veganize a family recipe, you can also learn how what the Healthiest Egg Substitutions for Holiday Baking are! Your grandma’s triple-layer cinnamon cream cheesecake will never see it coming.

  6. Special Thanksgiving

    Complete a Thanksgiving meal from start to finish with one of these themed menus. Whether you want to go the traditional route, mix it up with Southern-style dishes, or need to stick within a budget, we’ve got you covered.


  7. Allergy-Friendly and Healthy Thanksgiving

    You don’t need gluten to have a delicious and satisfying Thanksgiving meal. In fact, you don’t need soy, refined sugar, or refined oils either! If you want to chow down on a healthier feast without sacrificing taste, first learn How To Make Any Dish Gluten-Free, then check out these other pro tips for a healthier Thanksgiving below!
