Recipes for The Perfect Gluten Free Vegan Thanksgiving

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

Most of Thanksgiving dinner already has the potential to be plant-based and dairy-free, mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes, green beans and other vegetable sides. One of the easiest ways to navigate Thanksgiving with relatives is to eat the sides and the stuffing, but of course the turkey can be vegan too (and the turkeys will thank everyone). Unfortunately, without turkey, the main dish is the stuffing, usually made with wheat or corn bread, but there are a lot of easy ways to adapt and still have all the traditional dishes on the table. Even gravy is often made with flour. Luckily we have vegan, gluten-free recipes to keep everyone well-fed and coming back for seconds. You can also substitute the flour for our glutinous stuffings. Cheers to a happy, healthy and allergen-free Thanksgiving for you and your loved ones.

Gluten-Free Vegan Turkey

While the grocery stores are full of Tofurkey and other delish substitutes this time of year, why not make your own? Especially if you need to cut out or cut back on the glutenous options, this well-seasoned recipe will make sure you’re not missing the turkey.

Soy-Free Glamorgan ‘Sausages’ in Eggplant ‘Bacon’ Wraps

If you’re not a turkey person, but still like the idea of a meaty dish to serve, vegan sausage is a good special-occasions treat, and these festive Welsh sausages will certainly catch attention.

Thanksgiving Vegan Cornbread Stuffing with Gravy

Cornbread stuffing is a cool alternative to wheat bread stuffing, and a classic at many Southern dinner tables. Substitute gluten-free flour for all-purpose flour in the cornbread, or use another gluten-free cornbread recipe.

Biscuits and Mushroom Gravy

Biscuits and bread can be as important to the holiday spirit as the centerpiece, but they don’t have to go anywhere. Dried basil adds visual and flavorful pop to these biscuits, while the gravy is full of onion, garlic, thyme and marjoram.

Traditional Cranberry Sauce

One of the many things to love about cranberry sauce is that it’s always both vegan and gluten-free, so you may already have your own, or your grandma’s recipe. Cranberry sauce provides color and sweetness, and is one of the most exciting things to have leftovers of. With just a little maple syrup, this traditional-tasting cranberry sauce doesn’t contain any of the usual white sugar.

Orange Infused Cranberry Sauce

You can’t go wrong with more fruit. The citrus flavoring adds zest to the tart and sweet combination.

Spiced Cranberry, Ginger and Pear Sauce

Partly inspired by chutney, the pear gives the sugar a hand for healthy sweetness, and the cardamom and ginger add a special, unique twist to the classic.

Simple and Healthy Pecan Pumpkin Pie

Is it dessert time already? Heck yeah. Pies are one of the highlights of the holiday season, especially pecan and pumpkin, and with recipes like this one they can be gluten-free, vegan, healthy, and still fantastically creamy and sweet. So basically, you get to have your pie and eat it too.
