I’ve had so many requests for Vegetarian Thanksgiving Meal Ideas and if you know me, you know I love to plan a menu. While I do have plenty of recipes marked ‘Thanksgiving’ and ‘Holiday’ on the blog--I’m so excited to have all of these festive vegetarian recipes to share in one place.
Many of these dishes have become part of our family’s Thanksgiving tradition and I hope they bring as much joy and as many happy memories to your table as they have brought to ours!
I’ve organized this guide by course so you can easily pick one from each category to create an entirely plant-based menu! Or simply fill in where you need a dish or two to round out the meal. Hosting a holiday can be stressful, but menu planning doesn’t have to be!
Here you’ll find a variety of flavors, ingredients, and cooking methods. From Thanksgiving classics to favorites with an Indian twist--there’s something here for everyone. As always my recipes come with tips for making substitutions and adjusting spice levels.
I often get questions like "What do vegetarians eat for Thanksgiving?" Having a few friends and family members who do not eat meat, over the years I have developed this collection of plant-based recipes that everyone can enjoy. These meatless meals are not only colorful, and packed with nutrition but they are flavorful and hearty.
Keep this guide handy through the entire holiday season! Whether you’re hosting a party or looking for the perfect dish to bring to a potluck--just refer to the list 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving!! And scroll to the end of this post to see a sneak peek at my family's menu.
