Vegan Thanksgiving Appetizer Recipes

I don’t know about you, but Thanksgiving always seems to sneak up on me before I’ve had time to do the proper planning. Since we are now T – 16 days until the big day we wanted to give you some ideas on what yummy foods you can make. Just because you are avoiding animals in your food doesn’t mean you can’t have an amazingly tasty Thanksgiving meal. Whether you are attempting your own entire meal or making something to bring elsewhere we hope you will find some new and yummy recipes to try.

We’ve been scouring the web for plant-based and Vegan Thanksgiving recipes. Some are oil-free, some are gluten-free, some are soy-free and we have labeled them to make menu planning easier for you. Our mission at Plantivores is to make a plant-based lifestyle more convenient, accessible and sustainable. Having an enjoyable Thanksgiving is one way to help you feel that a plant-based lifestyle is not only possible, but a wonderful way to eat!

We will have a post for Vegan Thanksgiving appetizers, main courses, side dishes and desserts. Without further adieu, Plantivores’ proudly presents our first annual Vegan Thanksgiving Appetizer post.

    What a wonderful list of recipes! We’ve already had our Thanksgiving here in Canada, but I’m saving this for December. And, well, any time! 😉 Thanks so much for including the Quinoa Pizza Balls from my blog! 😀
