12 Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes


Thanksgiving is celebrated as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest, and in that spirit our festivities rightly revolve around food and lots of it.  I have collected a dozen of my favorite vegetarian and vegan dishes which would be perfect for your Thanksgiving dinner as main courses or side dishes. In keeping with the theme, most of them are stuffed or roasted and they are all deliciously vegan or vegetarian (that can easily be made vegan). I have thrown in a couple of my favorite seasonal salads to complement the roasted dishes and add a splash of color to your festive table.

Luckily, most of these recipes are healthy and naturally low fat so won’t add to the ‘winter layer’ we seem to start putting on this time of year. Clicking on any link will take you to the recipe and original blog post. Next week I will post a collection of My Favorite Soups so check back or Follow so you don’t miss it. Lots of sharing buttons below too… Share with your friends!

Happy Thanksgiving!  xoxo J

  1. Your recipes look delicious. i like the unusual combination of ingredients. I love black rice; red, too — anything but white. The darker rices have a whole different taste and texture. And I think squash is a forgotten vegetable. When I was a kid (50 years ago) it was always served plain, like mashed potatoes. While it does have its own flavor, it’s great for mixing with other ingredients. Hope your Thanksgiving was tasty.
