4 Vegetarian Thanksgiving Menus

Food brings people together. No American Holiday emphasizes this more than Thanksgiving. But sometimes, dietary restrictions make menu planning a little bit complicated.

Today, I’m sharing four vegetarian Thanksgiving menu options to make your holiday a little bit easier! Instead of the standard vegetarian pasta options found on many menus, you’ll find more balanced dishes that bring together vegetables, beans and legumes, and whole grains. These menus include traditional Thanksgiving flavors, vegan options, gluten free thanksgiving options, and a menu with an international twist, my personal favorite.

Traditional Vegetarian Thanksgiving Menu

For this menu, I’ve kept the recipes to traditional Thanksgiving flavors, creating a seamless transition from omnivore to vegetarian. In addition, each of these recipes would pair nicely if you’ve got some friends and family who are turkey eaters at your table.

  1. Appetizer: Mini Cheddar Cauliflower Bites
  2. Salad: Shaved Carrot Salad
  3. Main: Brown Rice Risotto with Apple, Fennel and Sage
  4. Side: Pecorino Roasted Potatoes

 

Vegan Thanksgiving Menu

Many of my vegan dishes are whole food recipes. Instead of trying to recreate something else, I want to feature the vegetable I have on hand. These recipes are uncomplicated, vegetable forward options for your vegan Thanksgiving dinners.

  1. Appetizer: Sweet Potato Dumplings
  2. Main: Baked Brussels Sprouts Pasta
  3. Side: Vegan Potato Salad
  4. Salad: Shaved Carrot Salad

 

Gluten Free Vegetarian Thanksgiving Menu

Gluten free options abound at Thanksgiving! I typically steer away from gluten-free swaps for my dishes. Instead, I focus on naturally gluten free options, like the ones listed below. Of course, you can always add on your favorite traditional Thanksgiving foods.

  1. Appetizer: Risotto Stuffed Mushrooms
  2. Side: Pecorino Roasted Potatoes
  3. Main: Roasted Beets with Goat Cheese Polenta
  4. Salad: Pomegranate Kale Salad
