Vegan Holiday Feast (Photos)

The following article was written by Keegan Baur.

I am proud to announce that this year, for the first time ever, I made an entire vegan Thanksgiving spread! Because I’d never done anything like this before, I chose simple recipes and didn’t go too overboard on the number of dishes that I created. That being said, everything was incredibly tasty, and we devoured every delectable morsel on our plates. We couldn’t move for the next six hours. Take a look at the photos below, then save the recipes and prepare these dishes for your next holiday meal!

Red Peppers Stuffed With Wild Rice Pilaf and Butternut Squash, Cranberries, and Pecans

Tip: You can stuff the peppers with any filling that you’d like. The night before Thanksgiving, I prepared the rice according to the directions. The next day, I simply cut the tops off my peppers, seeded and cleaned out the insides, stuffed them, and baked them at 350°F for about 25 to 30 minutes.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Biscuits From ‘Vegan Yum Yum‘ (p. 5)

Field Roast Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute

As someone who doesn’t particularly care for vegetarian meats, let me tell you that this one was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and that’s saying a lot!

Chestnut Stuffing From ‘Clean Food‘ (p. 228)

Irish Crème Kiss Cookies From ‘Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar (p. 155)

And here’s the entire spread, including melt-in-your-mouth Fluffy Mashed Potatoes and Savory Mushroom Gravy:

So yummy!

Also, have you seen the books Vegan Holiday Kitchen and Vegan for the Holidays? Although I didn’t have either at my disposal this Thanksgiving, perhaps I will get one for my Christmas meal or for the holidays next year.

    Thank you for doing what you do. I came across your website on sept 1st browsing for vegan alternatives to meat. Up until that moment I ate meat daily, but after seeing a video about slaughterhouses, I gave it up completely from that day, and haven’t looked back since. And I feel better in all ways. Thank you so much.

    I have been rescuing animals for more than fifteen years. It is the most gratifying feeling, to be able to save an animal from hunger, danger and abuse. It is not easy task,especially with so many humans that do not understand that saving an animal is more important than going to eat dinner at a fine restaurant, or buy expensive cloth. I am a Realtor and things have been very challenging for the past four years, but the animals that I encounter or they find me will eat, have some shelter and especially lot’s of love. I love all animals, I do not have a preference, they are all loving, beautiful and especially loyal. Hurray for the people that dedicate their lives to helping save an animals. We give a lot of ourselves, but what we receive is priceless. Thank you for excisting PETA and let us all continue the labor of love, SAVING ANIMALS!
