15 tasty recipe ideas for making your vegan Thanksgiving table totally fabulous, whether you are hosting a large gathering, chillaxing at home, or need to take something super yum to a pot luck.
I’ve been so busy working on my cookbook that I totally forgot that it’s Thanksgiving here in Canada in less than two weeks. As usual I am totally disorganized, but I do have my Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner Menu & Shopping List from last year if I get stuck. It includes an entire and downloadable menu, timeline and shopping list so makes it all super easy.
I envy you guys in the U.S who have a lot more time to prep for the holidays. Our Thanksgiving always comes around far too quickly almost as soon as summer is over.
I’ve been browsing through my recipes looking for inspiration and thought that a collection of Thanksgiving suitable recipes might be useful for me, and for you, so here it is.
It will help you make your Thanksgiving table totally fabulous, whether you are hosting a large gathering, chillaxing at home, or need to take something super yum to a pot luck.
