Vegan Thanksgiving Menu

/Vegan Thanksgiving Menu

Happy Thanksgiving!

My sister and I both spend a lot of time reading cookbooks, thinking and talking about recipes and, of course, cooking. We love to make and eat good food and we both love to feed people! I have been working on creating a classic Vegan Thanksgiving menu for a few years now, but this year I asked my sister to help me perfect it. We’ve been working hard to adapt, create, test and write these recipes. This picture is from September, when we did our huge test of the recipes.

Here’s the menu:

White Bean Pot Pies
Green Bean Casserole
Mashed Potatoes with Mushroom Gravy
Braised Brussels Sprouts
Cranberry Sauce
Pecan Pie (with chocolate and bourbon)
Squash Pie (for breakfast!)

English Cranberry Pudding

We also put out some fancy olives, pickles and nuts for snacking in between the breakfast pie and the feast!

We also like to organize things… And we’ve learned from past experience that trying to cook everything on Thanksgiving Day is hard and can be stressful. If you do a little everyday throughout the week then you can relax and enjoy your family and the feast on Thursday.

Here’s a suggested timeline: Thanksgiving Timeline (Have fun crossing things off your list!!)

Whether you use one of these recipes or create the entire menu, we hope that you enjoy them. We would love to hear any feedback that could be helpful in the future editing of these recipes. We’re already planning a few additions for next year!

Oh, and we didn’t forget the turkey. Please consider making a donation to Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey program!

Adopt a Turkey

We wish you a joyful, peaceful holiday.


In gratitude,
Summer & Jessica

    Great job on the Vegan menu. At our house we go for a vegeterian menu and have butternut squash lasagna rolls, a recipe from the Beekman Boys cookbook. But maybe this year is the vegan year.

      Go for it, Mark!! I’ve been doing vegan Thanksgivings with omnivores for years now and they’re always a huge hit. Summer and her sis have provided some outstanding ideas.
