My 2018 Vegan Thanksgiving Menu
It's almost that time!
In case it's your first fully vegan Thanksgiving, or you just need some cooking inspiration, here is my exact menu that I will be cooking this year and bringing to the boyfriend's big family get-together, as well as my own family's.
If in doubt, and needing to veganize one of your family's favorites, Pinterest/Google never fails! There's nothing I can't find a vegan version for at this point (I'm confident, what can I say,) so if you get stuck and need some help, reach out!
"Turkey"I'm obsessed with several faux-turkey options out there, but picked up Trader Joe's this year. Here's a great guide to other options, because no one should have to die for your main course, and thanks to these delicious options, you don't have to feel deprived of your "Turkey"-fix.
I will say, my own mother doubted that good old classic Southern cornbread could be made right, egg-less. Enter, aquafaba, the super easy egg replacement in this recipe. Not only does it work, it was better than the original, egg-y version I've eaten most of my life!
GravyI make this mushroom gravy every year, and every year, it's one of the first things to run out.
Mashed PotatoesThe only thing you need to do to veganize your favorite mashed potatoes are of course, sub out vegan butter, cheese or sour cream if you use it, and bam, vegan mashed potatoes! If you're more the step-by-step recipe type though, this one's great.
Mac and CheeseI don't think this needs any explanation! Make it--everyone will love it, vegans and non-vegans alike.
Vegan Green Bean CasseroleI'm so obsessed with this recipe, last year I ended up making it basically all October-November long, just cause.
Roast VeggiesI've whipped up this recipe for years now, and it never fails to please.
Wild Rice CasseroleNow this isn't even close to vegan, in the original version, but I will be making swaps and tweaking where necessary to make it vegan! I've done it for years and it totally works.
Pumpkin PieAre you team pumpkin or pecan pie? I'm pumpkin all the way, and it isn't Thanksgiving without a good old pumpkin pie if you ask me. Will be serving this with vegan whipped cream from the grocery store!
Pecan PieMost of my family and boyfriend are team pecan pie, so we'll have to have at least one of these as well.
What will you be making this Thanksgiving? Would love to hear your menu plan and any great Thanksgiving day recipes you have!
