7 Vegan Side Dishes for Thanksgiving
Warm Roasted Butternut Squash Salad
Roasted squash can be delicious on its own - but throw them on top of spinach with some toasted, caramelized pecans, and you have a festive fall salad with texture and taste. This recipe from the Minimalist Baker will have even your squash-skeptic family members eager to try!
Green Bean Casserole
Creamy, savory, and healthy! The Minimalist Baker also has a 30 minute, ten ingredient take on this classic holiday dish. The kid’s table won’t be able to stay away from their green beans this year.
Maple Roasted Carrots
Toss your carrots in extra virgin olive oil and pure maple syrup, throw on some salt and pepper, fresh herbs like rosemary and sage, bake at 400 degrees, and voila! Your delicious, sweet, caramelized roasted carrots are done in 20 minutes.
Vegan Cornbread Stuffing
Savory, sweet, AND gluten-free! This vegan cornbread stuffing incorporates cranberries and even pecans or walnuts if your heart desires.
Scalloped potatoes are a warm, cozy dish for the holidays. Using a mandolin, food processor or by hand, slice your potatoes nice and thin so they can soak up all the delicious flavor. This dish feels more like a casserole than typical roasted potatoes, perfect for Thanksgiving. This vegan version achieves the cheesy taste with nutritional yeast and keeps the flavors powerful with tons of spices.
Mushrooms are packed with hearty flavor on their own, so there’s not much work to do here! Heat some olive oil in a large pan, add minced garlic. Once the garlic is browned and thrown in your mushrooms. Salt and pepper to taste or even add in some balsamic vinegar.
Three Ingredient Cranberry Sauce
Every Last Bite’s cranberry sauce will have everyone scooping for seconds! All you need is 15 minutes, cranberries, an orange and honey (or maple syrup), and a pot!
