From vegan centrepieces which don’t involve meat (and aren’t nut roast) to deliciously gooey maple pecan pie. This list of Thanksgiving recipes is perfect for your whole plant-based menu, no planning needed!
The perfect centrepiece for any vegan Thanksgiving meal instead of turkey. This tart has a deliciously nutty crust enriched with walnuts and olive oil. The filling uses roasted butternut squash, tahini, lemon and thyme for a savoury take on pumpkin pie. On top are shallots caramelised with balsamic vinegar to really make this a special dinner.
A creamy cashew-based ‘cheese’ sauce which is completely vegan! It includes blended, cooked potato which helps to thicken the sauce and adds a gooey texture.
A dash of marmite (or soy sauce/miso), nutritional yeast, mustard and smoked paprika add the cheesy, salty flavour instead of cheddar. Just whizz up the sauce, pour over the steamed veg and pop under the grill to brown briefly until bubbling and caramelised.
A plant-based alternative to having Brussels sprouts with bacon and chestnuts – using olives and chipotle paste to bring that salty, smoky flavour instead of the meat.
Pan roasting the Brussels sprouts gives them a caramelised flavour and crispy edges. The chestnuts bring a nutty sweetness and the olives add a savoury salinity.
Crusty cubes of sourdough mixed with leeks, rosemary, thyme and white pepper are soaked in vegetable stock and baked until soft in the middle and crispy on top.
A scattering of soy-infused mushrooms adds a savoury, meaty flavour in a vegan friendly way.
A soft, squishy loaf made using sourdough discard (perfect for using it up as it needs a full 150g of starter!) and pumpkin puree. No egg or dairy substitutes needed in this simple loaf. Just stir together and bake.
If you don’t have sourdough starter, just replace the discard with 75g (2/3 cup) plain white flour and 75g (1/3 cup) water, mixed together until smooth.
