Vegan Side Dishes for Thanksgiving

These vegan Thanksgiving side dishes cover everything from roasted veggies to soups, salads and pies. We’d understand if it’s too difficult to choose from these options – you can just prepare a couple of them instead of one large main meal so everyone can try all the different flavors. Plus, they are great to bring to someone else’s house, too!

For a little twist on the standard pumpkin pies, we thought we should share these little parfaits. They are made of only 10 ingredients which include pumpkin butter, coconut whipped cream, and cinnamon-maple granola and pecans!

  1. I’m not vegan but our granddaughters are and their brother is vegetarian. I’m the only one of their relatives that makes food specifically for them. I was looking for an entree for them and have decided on the Stuffed Butternut Roast. I make almost all the sides vegan friendly. For their dessert I plan on making the Upside Down Pecan Praline Pumpkin Cake. I think these will be a hit.

    • Wow, Barbara! You’re an amazing grandmother and your family is so lucky :)
      Thank you very much for sharing, all of this sounds wonderful and will be tasty to everyone on the table I’m sure!
      Best wishes to you and your grandkids,

  2. YES! ALL of them! My husband and I have changed our eating habits to plant based. No sugar (because my husband has cancer. He is not doing chemo or radiation). He had 2 kinds of cancer which are in remission because of his diet of plant based eating however he has still eaten chicken. We are trying to go vegan all the way. No meat!
    I look forward to getting these recipes
