Okay, so maybe the title is a wee bit misleading. I will be making a turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner. I do have to make my omnivorous husband happy. But the rest of my recipes are vegetarian or vegan. I make him happy with a turkey and he doesn’t complain that the stuffing is made without sausage, or that the gravy is made without turkey drippings. Since I have been sharing all of my recipes the last week or two, I thought I would put it all together in a nice, neat Vegetarian Thanksgiving Menu (easily adapted to a Vegan Thanksgiving Menu).
Vegetarian Thanksgiving Menu
My recipes offer vegan ingredient options allowing you to have a Vegan Thanksgiving Menu if you are looking for one.
- Cheese and crackers
- Relish Tray (pickles, sweet pickles, black olives, green olives, cocktail onions, pickled green beans)
- Stuffed Celery
- Tofurky® Roast – for the veggies
- Roasted Turkey – for the omnis
- Mashed Potatoes and Cauliflower made with Roasted Garlic
- My Favorite Vegetarian Stuffing Recipe
- Savory Sweet Potato Kugel
- Vegan Gravy; serving both the basic vegan gravy recipe and the vegan mushroom gravy variation
- Lilah’s Green Bean Casserole Recipe
- Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Dijon Sauce
- Cranberry Sauce
- Parkerhouse Rolls
I adapt or create a good many of my recipes. When it comes to baking, I am a lot less adventurous, sticking with the tried and true. So the most of the recipes (the recipes I enjoy making for my family) below will take you to the original source.
- Pumpkin Pie from Paula Deen
- Pecan Pie from Pioneer Woman
- Lattice Top Apple Pie
- Blueberry Pie (I admit, with full-disclosure, my family prefers canned blueberries so that is what I use. Canned blueberry pie filling. Don’t judge, sometimes it is just easier this way LOL)
My pie crusts are made using my mother-in-law’s recipe.
Yes, these are simply store bought.
- Apple Cider
- Egg Nog
What do you include in your Thanksgiving menu plans that would be considered traditional for your family; something you couldn’t imagine not having? For me, it is the stuffing that reminds me of being at my grandma’s growing up. And I don’t suppose I can imagine Thanksgiving without green bean casserole, mashed potatoes or pumpkin pie. The rest seems negotiable. But stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and pumpkin pie, what would a Thanksgiving menu be without them?
Something that seems unique to my family, however, would be the stuffed celery. I have never seen stuffed celery on the table of anyone else I have had the blessing of sharing this holiday with. Just those in my own family. What seems unique to your family?
I hope you enjoy the vegetarian Thanksgiving menu. If you include any of the recipes we have shared with you in your Thanksgiving menu plans, please stop back by to let us know what your family thought of them.
