Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

Maybe you’re like me and you have heard the word “Vegan,” but you weren’t entirely sure what being Vegan was all about yet you were curious. Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products, and all other animal-derived ingredients. Many vegans also do not eat foods that are processed using animal products, such as refined white sugar and some wines. 

Vegan refers to either a person who follows this way of eating, or to the diet itself. That is, the word vegan can be an adjective used to describe a food item, as in, “This curry is vegan”, or, it can be used as a noun, as in, “Vegans like cookies, too.”

Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

So, keeping this in mind, I did a search to find out what Vegans would make for Thanksgiving. Quite honestly, I was pleasantly surprised. Many of the recipes included food that I would be happy to add to my family feast. 

Below I have listed several of my favorite Vegan Recipes for different Thanksgiving courses. Please try to keep your mouth from watering as you read.
