If you are looking for a vegan main dish for Thanksgiving, you are in the right place! Whether you want to make a vegan turkey, vegan ham, vegan Wellington, or a more plant-based main like a whole roasted cauliflower, I've got you covered!
I've been vegan since the year 2000, so I have had many years of vegan Thanksgiving to test recipes and see what dishes both the vegans and the omnivores at the table liked the best.
Here are the 10 vegan main dishes that my friends and family have loved for Thanksgiving over the years...
This vegan turkey is made from wheat gluten. It's meaty, juicy, and delicious and tastes so authentic, that no one will feel like they are missing out by eating vegan.
My family loves this faux ham recipe and requests it for every holiday. (I usually have to make 2 of them and the vegan kids in the family fight over the last pieces every year.)
A gluten-free, low-carb, plant-based main dish that is as delicious as it is beautiful!
Aka cottage pie. This is one of the easiest and most delicious vegan mains that you can make! It's always a hit and it can also be made ahead of time and easily reheated.
This is great because you can make it ahead of time and bake it before serving. I have never met anyone who doesn't like this lasagna. plus it feeds a crowd.
Made with seasoned tofu and filled with stuffing then basted and baked to perfection. (Use cauliflower stuffing in the center to make it gluten-free.)
Filled with seasoned tofu, mushrooms, and caramelized onions wrapped and baked in a puff pastry!
Jumbo shells stuffed with vegan pumpkin ricotta and vegan sausage then topped with pumpkin alfredo and baked to perfection.
This vegan lentil loaf is made with green lentils and brown rice, and packed with plant-based protein!
Made quick and easy in 1-pot filled with veggies, vegan chicken, and gravy topped with a puff pastry crust to make it super simple.
