My Vegan Thanksgiving Menu, 2013

Thanksgiving 2013 collage

Tis the day before Thanksgiving, and I’m sure that many readers are planning some sort of menu to enjoy and share with others. I’ll be at the home of a friend, and I’ll be contributing my sweet potato and lentil loaf to what I’m sure will be a lovely spread.

In the meantime, I wanted to share recent recipes that might help to make your Thanksgiving a little tastier this year.

  1. Your Thanksgiving menu looks delicious – it makes me wish we would celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK!

  2. Girl. Your roasted rutabaga and parsnip soup is DIVINE. I made it a couple of weeks ago with the addition of coconut milk and celeriac, and I wanted to cry of happiness. Thank you for inspiring a fabulous meal. Have the happiest of Thanksgivings!

  3. Hope you have a wonderful, fun, relaxing and delicious Thanksgiving, Gena! Everything looks so good. 🙂 xoxo

  4. Oh my! I wish we had Thanksgiving here. Though I don’t really need an excuse to make those beautiful dishes. The sweet potato lentil loaf sound especially tasty.

  5. That red cabbage and green apple slaw is one of my favorites; it’s the recipe that really got me into liking red cabbage. Thanks for posting it because now I definitively know what salads I am making for Thanksgiving!

  6. What a wonderfully comprehensive post!! So many of my first years in this lifestyle I would spend my holidays scouring the internet for recipe ideas.. You have probably saved so many people so much time! Thank you!! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving 🙂

  7. Gorgeous roundup!! I want that butternut squash stuffing right now! Hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving, love. xoxox

  8. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Gena! I think if I could have this whole menu I’d be in heaven. Just lovely.

    I’m making a meal tonight specifically for my husband–he LOVES these veggie cutlets I make (which I don’t actually eat because it’s made out of gluten) & then tomorrow we’re eating out at our vegan (the only one in this city of a million+) restaurant’s Thanksgiving buffet. Excited for no clean-up!
