25 Vegan Dishes for the Holidays!

25dishesheader

The holidays are here! I don’t know about you, but I’m happy to say goodbye to the goblins and ghouls and hello to mulled apple cider, fuzzy mittens and family and friends gathered around a festive table. I love this season. Maybe it’s because I was born on Thanksgiving Day but the crisp weather and the changing colors on the trees just make my heart happy.

The only down side to the holidays is the inherent stress it can cause, especially for those hosting or opening up their homes for a large family feast. Maybe you’re a vegan and are trying to figure out what to serve your omnivorous guests so that everyone’s palates will be pleased. Maybe you’re an omnivore hosting a vegan and you have no idea what to prepare. Maybe you’re just looking for some animal-friendly, plant-based options to make this Thanksgiving the healthiest and most compassionate Thanksgiving yet.

This post is your guide to preparing a vegan holiday spread, compliments of One Happy Table. You’ll find scrumptious starters and sides, elegant entrees and decadent desserts. Some recipes feature classic holiday flavors like pumpkin, cranberry and potato. Others are a bit off the beaten path but are still perfect for a hearty holiday everyone will remember.

So start scribbling or pinning your favorites and let the holiday meal planning begin!
