Our Vegan Thanksgiving Menu 2012


After a trip to Trader Joe’s (hello, cheap vino!), a mad dash to Market Street and a dreaded race through Whole Foods (soy whipped cream and pre-made vegan pie crusts FTW!) today, I can finally say that I’m ready for Thanksgiving.  Last year was my first time doing most of the cooking for the occasion and I was still a vegan newbie, so naturally I was thrilled when everything turned out even better than expected.  I’m very excited about our menu for this year and wanted to share it here with you.  I also want to hear what you’ll be cooking/eating tomorrow!


Vegan Thanksgiving Menu 2012

Wine, wine and more wine

Daiya Havarti, crackers and hummus for an appetizer

Meaty Vegan Green Bean Casserole (with extra vegan apple-sage sausage thrown in!)

Sweet Potato Casserole with a coconut-maple-pecan topping (I actually just made this up to the baking point today and it took everything I had in me to not eat all the topping with a spoon)

Creamy Vegan Broccoli and Rice Casserole (the rice is cooking as we speak!)

Vegan Pull-Apart Fluffy White Dinner Rolls (my Mom is making these- they were amazing last year)

Cranberry Sauce (Mom is also making this)

Green Salad (sister C is bringing this)

Pumpkin Pie (Mom is making this, too- with a pre-made spelt flour vegan crust)

Vegan Molasses Cookies (sister E is bringing these)

I think we’re also having wine ;)


What are you having for Thanksgiving?  I really want to know!

  1. Since my 2 year old and I are sick and alone for the holiday we are doing it low stress. I think I’m going to steal the sweet potato casserole idea and tweak it. I’m going to make a gf stuffing with cranberry sauce and a yummy gf pumpkin pie. Lots of sugar and carbohydrates and vino of course.

    • Ah, sorry you’re sick, Dr. J! I, too, am fighting the sniffles but it’s nothing an extra glass of wine can’t fix. ;) Have a happy Thanksgiving! Carbs for all!
