the first my mom said when i told her i was going to be a vegetarian was, 'what are you going to eat at thanksgiving?!' well that was some 6 years ago and we've come a long way! though turkey is a tradition each year, it seems that more and more vegetarians and vegans alike are coming to the table to have a turkeyless thanksgiving. no matter where you are on the scale: from being interested in having a veggie side - to expecting a vegetarian guest - to being a vegan yourself, below is something for everyone!

  • Love these! My husband and I are having our first vegan Thanksgiving this year and could not be more excited about it. All of the plant-based recipes I’ve found are just so much more exciting than the traditional Thanksgiving dishes. We’ll certainly be trying some of these delicious looking recipes!

  • oh, my – vegetable wellington is going on my menu for next week for sure!!! that looks amazing! can you still get asparagus in CA?

    • Jes, it is so good! no asparagus here but I substituted some celery root that came in our CSA box!

  • I love this post! The recipes look yum but I particularly like that you linked to a sustainable turkey site. Because while in reality not everyone will consider being vegetarian or vegan -we ALL have the choice to choose food that was raised kindly. Happy Thanksgiving!

  • bonnie – made the veggie wellington lastnight – the whole family *loved* it! left out the asparagus…will add it in come spring :)
