Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful. For the vegans and vegetarians, it’s also a time of having little to eat at your relative’s house. Thanksgiving dishes often include butter, turkey, and lots of bacon, however, this year, I had the pleasure of creating a plant-based Thanksgiving menu for the Kitchn’s Thanksgiving Fest 2021 and it was so fun! Now, I wanted to share the same type of options for you! 

Bring your own dish or host your holiday festivities this year with a fabulous plant-based menu! Drinks, sides, main courses, and desserts can all be made vegan for Thanksgiving. Don’t believe me? I’ll show you!
