What do vegans eat for the holidays?
For starters, vegans each the same things that everyone else eats. Only, there are no animal products involved in their meals.
A traditional Thanksgiving meal has turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy, macaroni and cheese, pumpkin or sweet potato pie, and usually a lot more!
A vegan Thanksgiving menu has all of these things or some variation of them, just made in a way that doesn’t contain animal products, including eggs and dairy.
No matter what you choose, we hope you have a delicious and fun filled holiday!
All of the recipes below are vegan, which means they are naturally dairy and egg free if you have those allergies. We do our best to make our recipes allergen friendly, and describe that in each post.
