Most people associate Thanksgiving with turkey. A vegan Thanksgiving is whatever the heck you want it to be, and for Maša Ofei of The Minimalist Vegan blog, that means a showstopping dish with seasonal produce. “When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of rich fall flavors,” Ofei said. “That’s why I picked this specific dish that’s a little different, but so delicious!”

Mashed Potatoes With Vegan Miso Garlic Butter
Rainbow Plant Life
Thanksgiving dinner is incomplete without sides. Yes, vegan mashed potatoes are available without cream or butter. But plain mashed potatoes are also a bit … plain That’s why Nisha Vora of the blog Rainbow Plant Life has a simple plan to kick up the flavor of mashed potatoes without the help of dairy products. “I’ve been making Thanksgiving mashed potatoes for my family since I was 16, so when I went vegan they were worried I wouldn’t be able to deliver,” Vora said. “But the combination of roasted garlic and miso butter makes these mashed potatoes just as indulgent and delicious as the classic.” Or if cheesy mashed potatoes are more your speed, you can’t go wrong with Dolly and Oatmeal’s Hasselback Potato and Shallot Gratin.

Emliie Eats
Emilie Hebert’s entree has plenty of protein. She is the registered dietician nutritionist behind Emilie Eats. That’s thanks in part to the magical fermented soy product known as tempeh, which has 18 grams of protein per three-ounce serving. “This stuffed squash recipe is filling enough to serve as your turkey alternative, thanks to the tempeh!” Hebert said. “It’s got everything: winter squash, tempeh, wild rice and a burst of sweetness from the pomegranates.”

Get Plant-Based Foods
Jaroudi Family
It seems absurd to require a vegan recipe of baked bread, even though it may seem ridiculous. Turkey stuffing often contains butter, eggs, and chicken broth. Brittany Jaroudi from The Jaroudi Family blog shares a quick and easy recipe. It replaces butter, eggs, chicken broth and white miso paste with plant-based alternatives. “One thing I love to see at our Thanksgiving table is comfort food without the bloating, yucky feeling you get at the end of the night,” Jaroudi said. “You can enjoy all the typical Thanksgiving food with your family and still feel good at the end of night (without the after dinner nap).”

Warm Cannellini with Browned Carrot Salad
My Bowl
A lot of traditional Thanksgiving sides are delicious. Simply because a side dish doesn’t include dairy or meat products doesn’t mean it can’t also satisfy you in the same way. “This is packed to the brim with sweet carrots and hearty little beans, warming pops of maple and bright wisps of dill,” said Alexandra Tallulah of the In My Bowl blog. “It’s the kind of bite that feels both indulgent and replenishing.” We’ll have seconds.

Vegan Shepherds Pie
A Couple Cooks
The negative reputation that plant-based foods get is for being bland and filling. But dishes such as this vegan shepherd’s pie by Sonja Overhiser and Alex Overhiser from A Couple Cooks are strong counterpoints. “This vegan shepherd’s pie is a fan favorite and a perfect Thanksgiving entree!” Overhiser said. “It’s creamy and gravy-filled with tender vegetables, lentils and scented with fennel and sage. Next, add a layer of fluffy golden brown mashed potatoes and fresh rosemary. It’s seriously satisfying.”

Cashew Corn Chowder and Cilantro Cream
My New Roots
You don’t need dairy to make a creamy soup, and Sarah Britton of the blog My New Roots knows this very well. “Classic chowder relies heavily on milk and cream, and perhaps a little butter for extra unctuousness,” Britton said. “As yum as that is, if you’ve never used cashews to replace [dairy]This soup is something that I’ve never made before. Even if you’re cooking for someone on the dairy train, it’s a lovely change of pace and gives a different flavor profile that adds something rich and satisfying to this simple soup.”

Vegan Mini Pecan Pies
Dada Eats
Samah Dada of the Dada Eats blog speaks for all of us when she asks, “Does Thanksgiving even exist without pecan pie?” No. The answer is no. “My Mini Vegan Pecan Pies are a crowd-pleasing staple, and I haven’t gone a single Thanksgiving without them in years,” Dada said. “The crust leans more towards cookie in texture, which is embraced by a chewy-sweet filling made from maple syrup, coconut sugar and pecans. Not to mention, they’re mini, and you and I both know that everything is cuter in miniature form.”
