“What can vegetarians eat on Thanksgiving?” Speaking as a vegetarian, I don’t need or expect a designated entrée. I’m happy enjoying hearty side dishes, like salads made with wild rice or chickpeas. Pass the mashed potatoes, please!
That said, you’ll find plenty of colorful main dishes in the list below. From veggie lasagna to stuffed acorn squash, these recipes will appeal to the whole crowd. Meat-like substitutes are typically underwhelming, so you won’t find any here.
If you’ve been wondering what to serve the vegetarian (or vegan) at your Thanksgiving table, this roundup is for you. The recipes are organized by category. You’ll find easy main dishes, filling salads, creamy soups and mostly savory side dishes. The recipes that are also gluten free and/or vegan are labeled accordingly.
At the end of the post, you’ll find links to recipes that will round out Thanksgiving Day, including breakfast options, appetizers, cocktails and desserts.
