Are you a vegetarian? Thanksgiving dinner is a tough time for vegetarians unless the whole family is also vegetarians then there is no problem. But, what if you or someone in your family doesn’t eat meat, it would be nice to have something for vegetarians that even non-vegetarians can enjoy. With this in mind, I have searched the net to find yummy and easy to prepare vegan Thanksgiving dinner ideas to save you time.
By the way, before you browse the recipes below, let me share a few tips that you may find helpful. Finding recipe is not the only problem you need to think about, it’s also finding a substitute to ingredients. For example, if you want to bake a cake but want a healthy option then eliminate flour on your list of ingredients and substitute it with almond or coconut flour. Both flours are great for plant lovers and carb-conscious eater. Plus! They have more nutritional value than regular flour. You can still achieve the same result with your bread, cake and other desserts with these healthier flour. Come to think of it! Using almond flour as a thickener for gravy is going to make the sauce even tastier.

If you are into meatloaf, there is a recipe for a meatless loaf in this article. Enough of the talk, here are 24 of vegetarian dishes that looks yummy and far from tasteless, or boring.
