Thanksgiving is already on my mind! I know it is still October, but just barely. We’ve already made plans to host this year and we will be joined by two other families that we’ve spent most of the last 4 Thanksgivings with.
Favorite Plant-Based Thanksgiving Recipes
I know some people worry and fret about what to make for Thanksgiving but I never do. I usually make the same things every year. In my mind there are six must-haves when it comes to Thanksgiving.
- Dressing (this is similar but different that stuffing)
- Mashed Potatoes
- Thanksgiving Gravy
- Mashed Sweet Potatoes
- Green Bean Casserole
- Pumpkin Pie
I’ve been eating these things every Thanksgiving for my whole life. In 2012 I gave them a healthy makeover for a plant-based Thanksgiving that is also oil-free and gluten-free.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and “Thanksgiving food” is my favorite food. Even though we don’t live near any of our extended family when we gather with friends and enjoy these traditional Thanksgiving foods it feels like it did when I was a kid.
More Plant-Based Thanksgiving Recipes
I’ve gathered all of my favorite recipes and have them available in a Holiday Meal Plan and Cook Book. In addition to the six recipes mentioned above this also contains the following recipes.
- Cranberry Sauce
- Holiday Lentil Loaf
- Cheezy Potatoes (Vegan Scalloped Potatoes)
- Faux Cheese Sauce
- Dry Veggie Broth Mix
- Butternut Squash & Quinoa Salad with Oil-Free Cranberry Dressing
- Oil-Free Cranberry Salad Dressing
- Lentil Shepherd’s Pie
- Veggie Pot Pie (this recipe contains gluten but can be made GF using the GF Pie Crust Recipe)
- Recipe for Easy All Purpose Sauce for Veggie Pot Pie
- Roasted Asparagus
- Maple Glazed Carrots
- Gluten-Free Pie Crust
- Apple Pie
- Creamy Apple Pie Bars
With the exception of Veggie Pot Pie every recipe is gluten-free.
I know that choosing the recipes isn’t even the most stressful part. It’s the planning.
The Planning Guide
The planning guide will give you several different options to get my six favorite recipes ready at the right time. For example if you need to cook everything on Thanksgiving Day it will tell you what time to start. If you can start a few days early the planning guide will tell you what to cook early and what to cook on Thanksgiving Day. It includes lots of other helpful tips too.
I almost forgot to mention that I include a shopping list for the first six recipes mentioned above. Basically, I assume you want to make those because they ARE Thanksgiving (to me anyway) and put them all on a well-organized shopping list. You can add additional ingredients if you are going to make more of the recipes or cross ingredients off if you are going to skip something. Easy Peasy!
When Anne got her copy she said, “Thanks for making my thanksgiving so much easier.” That is exactly the point! I want to make Thanksgiving a fun, stress free holiday that you actually enjoy!
These recipes are just limited to Thanksgiving, it’s my Christmas dinner recipe too. If we decide to make a big Easter dinner I use these recipes! I told you, this is my favorite kind of food.
Get Your Copy
I went a step further to give you two purchasing options. You can buy this on Amazon for kindle or download a PDF to print. I prefer my recipes printed out so I can make notes but I know a lot of you like to keep them on your phone or iPad. That is why I have two options.
You won’t be disappointed with this Healthy Holiday Meal Plan and Cook Book. It makes preparing a big holiday meal so much easier.
