7 Plant-Based Dishes To Make for Vegetarians This Thanksgiving

The thought of a vegetarian Thanksgiving may make some people’s skin crawl. After all, the entire day is centered around gobbling up a juicy turkey. Nonetheless, chances are someone coming to your Thanksgiving celebration is not a meat eater OR you’re looking for some ways to get more veggies in the mix. If that’s the case, here are seven recipes you can whip up to satisfy plant-eaters and meat-eaters alike.

Honey Roasted Carrots with Goat Cheese and Pomegranates

Add some color to the mix with this refreshing and healthy side. And to make your life easier buy seeds that have already been removed from the shell of a pomegranate. It might mean spending a few extra bucks, but it’s money well spent. Recipe here.

Creamy Leeks in Puff Pastry Cups


While your guests wait for the main event, they’ll be happy to munch on these creamy leek and feta bites. Use this handy appetizer hack to easily serve up these yummy bites. Recipe here.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts

Brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes are fall food staples and will be an easy addition to your spread. Recipe here.

Sweet Potato Goat Cheese Bites

Maybe you bought way too many sweet potatoes (hey, it happens). If that’s the case, this is another awesome appetizer idea, that’s light enough not to fill anyone up. Recipe here.

Vegetarian Herbed Stuffing

Stuffing is a Thanksgiving staple, but it’s often loaded with parts of the Turkey or some other meat. Create a vegetarian friendly option instead that everyone can enjoy. Recipe here.

Curried Root Vegetable Soup

Look at this creamy goodness! This soup will warm your guests up and possibly leave them wanting seconds. Recipe here.

Vegetarian Gravy

It might seem silly to have vegetarian gravy if it’s just going to go on top of a fat turkey, but gravy is a comfort condiment that everyone should be able to enjoy and add to their mashed potatoes or rice. You know your plate ends up being one big mess of food anyway. Recipe here.
