Oh hey! Who’s awesome at procrastinating on getting this post up?… This girl. I’m so sorry this is going up late, I mean’t to have something ready weeks ago and the time just seems to fly by lately.
Below I’ve grouped a few recipes of mine that I think would be perfect to include on your Thanksgiving day dinner. Keeping it completely vegan and celebrating this day by honoring animals everywhere, all the while appreciating what we have in our lives, surrounded by the ones we love most. I couldn’t ask for anything better!
Wishing you all a day full of love and yummy food!
Cranberry Chia Jam
The classic addition to everyones Thanksgiving meal, revamped with omega-3 goodness! I promise this version of cranberry jam will have you forgetting all about that tired, old cranberry sauce.
Who doesn’t love potatoes as a side? I love mixing different kinds and topping them with lots of plant-strong hemp seeds and green onions! A pinch of pink salt & black pepper really make this side perfect!
Baked Zucchini Fries
If you’re already set with potato dishes, why not make a vegetable in a fun new way?! Zucchini fires are my life. I swear these can be made just as crisp as classic fries, but these offer a carb-free version just as good, if not better! #guiltfree
You can’t have dinner without something loaded with cheezy goodness! I highly recommend mac’ n cheeze using my cashew based, extra cheezy sauce. It’s full of flavor and yet another way to have something you love without the guilt!
Stuffed Butternut Squash
As a vegan, sometimes finding a main protein can be hard. You can always buy a vegan loaf, make one homemade or go a completely different route. I’m loving these stuffed butternut squashes. You could totally cover these in cheezy sauce and be set!
Homemade Pumpkin Puree
If you’re making anything with pumpkin, you MUST make it fresh. I swear it will taste a million times better plus, you can brag to all your relatives how you made everything from scratch. That’s a pretty exciting accomplishment!
Pumpkin Spice Bliss Bites
A perfect example of using that homemade pumpkin puree. These are super quick to throw together for any holiday party. They taste like heaven and only you have to know they took you less than 10 minutes to make, no baking required!
Pumpkin Cheesecake Loafs
If you’re feeling ambitious, make homemade puree and then bake a batch of these glorious loafs. I can’t get over how delicious these are, I could eat a whole loaf… You might want to double the batch, these go quick!
Orange Carrot Cupcakes + Maple Cashew Frosting
I’m a fan of orange and carrot together. Something about the two makes for a combo that’s irresistible to me. If you agree, you’ll love these! They taste even better the next day. Just be sure to leave them unfrosted and store your frosting in the fridge, adding it just before serving.
I hope there’s something here that you decide to add to your next meal, Thanksgiving day or not. I’m wishing you all a lovely holiday season! Be sure to have fun, eat lots of plant-strong foods and most importantly – be thankful! <30
