37 Plant Based Thanksgiving Recipes

Have you recently gone plant based?

Wondering what you should eat for Thanksgiving this year? Since, you know, most traditional Thanksgiving food is off the table for a whole food plant based lifestyle!

*Disclosure: some links may contain affiliate links. For more information on what this means, visit my disclosure page.

Or, maybe you’ve been eating plant based for awhile and are simply looking for a few new ideas?

Well, either way, I’ve got you covered!

I’ve been on the search as well, and although I’ve been vegetarian for the past 20 years and mostly vegan for the past few; this is the first year that my husband has joined me on eating more plant based!

Which is very exciting, but also tricky, because when it comes to plant based food; he’s more picky about the food he’ll eat than our 6 year old! Or, maybe it’s because our taste preferences are different. I like things that are a bit more sweet than what he likes.

Maybe you have others to cook a plant based Thanksgiving for this year, too?

Well, let’s get to all of the delicious recipes we can devour this year, guilt-free!
