Thanksvegan Ideas


Welcome veg-friends! As Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I thought of posting what I plan on making for the special occasion. These are all fantastic recipes that vegans and non-vegans alike will love and enjoy. These are some ideas to help inspire you in case you’re at a lost for what to cook for the holiday! By eating compassionately on Thanksgiving, you are not are contributing to the 45 million turkeys each year who are slaughtered for this holiday alone. Be peaceful and proud, enjoy!


Field Roast Celebration Roast

Get this incredible roast at your local Whole Foods or health food store. I am getting the 1 lb roast only because there will be a couple people at my Thanksgiving feast, but they do have larger sizes for families! We plan on roasting it with onions and carrots for some extra veggies and flavour. I am very excited to try this product from Field Roast because all their products are SO delicious. I highly doubt this one will be an exception!

Gluten-Free Wild Rice and Mushroom Stuffing

I am looking forward to this variation of stuffing because usually I’m not a big fan the original style. I am choosing to do rice instead of traditional breaded stuffing for a couple of reasons. 1. Because I honestly don’t like the traditional style of stuffing… never have. 2. I am having someone over for Thanksgiving who doesn’t eat gluten. It’ll give them more food options at dinner and plus, we all don’t need to have gluten in everything!

Miso Gravy

I’ve used this recipe before and it’s very tasty, much better than mushroom gravy! Perfect for over the roast, stuffing, and the deviled potatoes (below). Actually over everything! Probably not the pumpkin pie HA! Make it gluten-free using tamarind instead of soy sauce.

Deviled Potatoes

Who needs eggs when you have potatoes? Potatoes are just all around better! You can get the look of deviled eggs easily with this recipe.

Lemon Garlic Green Beans

Green beans are a classic for Thanksgiving. Spice up this “rabbit food” with lemon and garlic, yum!

Rosemary Dinner Rolls

I have used this classic bread recipe time and time again. Mostly bread loafs, but I have made dinner rolls out of it as well. Just follow the recipe as stated, but if you have a bread maker, use the dough setting. Shape into balls on a greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees F until slightly golden brown. Remember to add pinches of rosemary to your dough before you bake them!

Gluten-Free Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Love love pumpkin pie, it’s one of my favourites. I bought a vegan and gluten-free pie shell at Whole Foods. I plan on topping it with coconut cool whip! Great way to finish the delicious feast.
