The first vegan Thanksgiving recipe is the classic sweet potato casserole, a layer of creamy sweet potatoes flavored with ginger covered with a topping made of savory pecans. You won’t even come close to missing the marshmallows!
2. Stuffed Acorn Squash
One of the dishes that I often prepare for Thanksgiving is stuffed acorn squash.

This dish proves that a satisfying vegan Thanksgiving recipe does not need a lot of effort on the cook’s part. Although it only consists of sautéed mushrooms and creamy polenta, this dish is reassuring and delectable despite its apparent lack of complexity.
4. Roasted Delicata Squash
Although I like spaghetti squash, acorn squash, and butternut squash, if I had to choose just one kind of winter squash as my favorite, it would be delicate. The naturally sweet and creamy squash combines kale, apples, fresh herbs, and an apple cider vinaigrette in a vegan Thanksgiving recipe. It’s like an autumn taste bomb went off in your mouth!
5. Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes
Although I like all of the ingredients of a vegan Thanksgiving recipe, including the comforting baked sweet potatoes and the refreshing broccoli filling, the sauce is, without a doubt, my favorite component of this meal. It is prepared with the flesh of the sweet potato that has been scooped out, rosemary, and lemon juice, and it has an appealing sweet and salty taste.
