Vegan Thanksgiving – What I’m Making in 2017

Plantivores’ Vegan Thanksgiving Menu 2017

7 fantastic vegan recipes I'm making for Thanksgiving this year. All gluten-free. Options for soy-free, oil-free and nut-free.

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays and since adopting a plant-based diet 6 years ago that hasn’t changed. Ditch the turkey, remove the dairy and voila, vegan Thanksgiving!

Every year I spend many hours looking for new recipes to make for Thanksgiving. This year not only am I a bit short on time, but I’ve found some really clutch recipes the past few years that I want to make again. What’s nice about this menu is that it features many various flavors and foods of the season — cranberries, pumpkin, squash, sweet potatoes, and green beans. It is also gluten-free.

This might be a lot of food, but, Thanksgiving. And leftovers. 🙂

Here goes and enjoy your Vegan Thanksgiving!
