My 1st Vegan Thanksgiving Recipe Round Up blog title

I am so excited to celebrate my 1st Vegan Thanksgiving this year!  I have been spending some (ok...who am I kidding...lots of time 😏) of time pinning recipes and watching You Tube videos.  Keep reading to check out my Top 🔟

This year we will celebrating Thanksgiving at a good friend's house.  This means I am not really cooking a full meal, but I am bringing two dishes to make my vegan meal a little easier.  Plus, I know there will be a few items I can eat that she is making that are "accidentally vegan." Yayyyy!  I also thought this would be a great post for the #GratefulNovember challenge...Check that out here!

My main priority was figuring out what my main dish was going to be while everyone else had turkey. After watching this video, I knew exactly what I wanted to pick up at the store.  P.S. This one doesn't count in my Top 10👍  Keep scrolling!!!


Yep you guessed it!  I went with the Tofurky Holiday Vegetarian Roast & Gravy!  I can't wait to try this..I have been trying a few different Tofurky products lately and have been loving them all.  I highly recommend their Spinach Pesto Sausages...so delicious!  This vegan roast comes with its own wild rice stuffing (already stuffed) and a separate container of vegan gravy.  I would definitely recommend getting two or more roasts for more than 4 people.  Looking at the size of the actual roast when I opened the box, I would say that comfortably serves two very hungry or three moderately hungry people...don't forget about leftovers too!  Those are very important 🍲

I did a little digging on Pinterest for some recipes to dress up the Tofurky Vegetarian Roast a bit and found these that sounded absolutely delish...

I am taking both of these recipes and creating my own hybrid version..one because I'm missing some of the ingredients in each, and two, because I want the best of both worlds! 😉

Next up I wanted to bring a side dish to help keep my plate (and my stomach) full!  There were so many amazing vegan Thanksgiving side dishes to choose from.  I really wanted to go with a vegan corn casserole, you know the one...Its usually packed with tons of dairy products!  Unfortunately, I was not able to find a decent recipe online for this...I may have to work on my own, but I didn't want to do a trial run before the big day...

I opted for my next favorite dish, vegan sweet potato casserole 🍠 I found this one on Pinterest...

This is actually meant to be a Paleo sweet potato casserole..I think it might actually be "accidentally vegan" and I am about to de-Paleo it by adding a generous layer of vegan Trader Joe's marshmallows under the Pecan topping 💓

I was all set with my two dishes, but of course, I wanted to share the vegan Thanksgiving love on this post so enjoy the rest of these videos and recipes!!!  All I'm going to say is keep scrolling if you are a fan of Vegan Pumpkin Mac & Cheese...oh yeah!
