Thanksgiving Recipes – vegan & gluten free – peace. love. quinoa

Nov 20

As Thanksgiving nears, I am scrambling to put together the menu for my Annual Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner that I prepare on Black Friday. Over the years, whether I have been alone or not, I have made bountiful meals every Black Friday since the day I went vegan. I can have the day all to myself and I can eat as much yummy vegan food as I want. I don’t bother my family much with my vegan food on Thanksgiving – they just don’t understand.

The last few months have been hectic for us and I have had very little time to spend in the kitchen. Thanksgiving this year will be tricky because I don’t have my own kitchen to work in, which means that I share preparation and storage space as well. I decided to reach out to some of my favorite bloggers for recipe inspiration because I just don’t have time to think up a meal on my own – and I found some damn good recipes. I have narrowed down my menu to the dishes pictured below. I am hoping that my boyfriends family will eat some of my vegan cooking even though they’ll have leftovers from their own Thanksgiving feast.
