It’s almost that time: Thanksgiving! Simply put, there’s no space at my table for Tofurkey!! This roundup is for everyone – vegetarian, vegan, meat-eater or anyone having one at their Thanksgiving dinner. I want to indulge 100% in all the best vegan Thanksgiving recipes there are on the inter web, filled with 100% real foods. I’ve created this roundup for that exact reason. Appetizers, main dishes, side dishes and desserts and drinks (YAY!). I know main dishes are a huge focus for Thanksgiving so I made sure to include a long list of them. P.S. I put an indicator beside all the Gluten Free recipes.
