Vegetarian Thanksgiving

Put a spin on traditional Thanksgiving specialties and prepare them vegetarian-style.




Tofu Turkey

A tofu turkey can be packed with stuffing, basted and baked like a bird for several hours. Serve with all the trimmings--gravy, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce.



Thanksgiving Sides


Roasted root vegetables, salads featuring hearty greens, and spicy condiments round out the meal.


Vegan Desserts


Unless you favor lard-based pie crusts, you should be able to serve your favorite desserts to the entire table. If you need a vegan option, try one of these recipes. (For the chocolate pie, make an oil crust using soy or almond milk in place of the dairy.)


Vegetarians on the Guest List

Are you cooking a traditional Thanksgiving meal but having guests who don't eat meat?

Ask your guests if they eat eggs and dairy, and avoid serving the following (or have vegetarian versions to offer):

  • Stuffing that has been cooked in the turkey (or contains chicken broth)
  • Bacon drippings
  • Oysters
  • Gelatin
  • Marshmallows (they contain gelatin)
  • Meat gravy

If your guests are vegan, consider making a vegan entree. Ask your guests to bring one or two side dishes that they can eat, as many Thanksgiving favorites don't easily translate into vegan dishes.
