The 10 Ultimate Crowd-Pleasing Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes To Make This Year

The time has come to start getting excited about the holidays! And of course, the keyword for a joyous holiday season is… PLANNING!

Delicious food brings people together, and Thanksgiving is a great time to spread the love with some awesomely drool-worthy dishes that your friends and family will absolutely enjoy. This can only come true with proper planning, because who can put together a great dish when they are stressed? Not even me, and I am known among my family and friends to be able to turn any food into a rich, mouthwatering delight (not meaning to brag, just trying to point out how important a good mental state is).

So, in my quest to help you achieve the confident, joyous mental state you need to plan and prepare an amazing vegan Thanksgiving feast, I have picked out 10 ultimate crowd-pleasers! I am not a fan of the looong long lists of 50+ holiday recipes you would often see online – I find these overwhelming.

I prefer to give you a shorter list of recipe picks that I am most confident will be appreciated by vegans and non-vegans alike! You can also Download The Vegan Holiday Avalanche guide, featuring a full recipe plan for each of the holidays here:
