Gluten-Free Vegan Recipes for Thanksgiving

by Valerie on November 20, 2012 · 2 comments

Happy two days before Thanksgiving!! I am kind of a last minute Thanksgiving person – usually my husband and I plan the menu the weekend before, but sometimes we have been known to go shopping as late as the morning of Thanksgiving. I know, I know … but we can do this because (1) there is no advance planning regarding a turkey involved, seeing as there is no turkey involved and (2) Thanksgiving for us tends to be very small. It is a lot easier to be last minute about a meal when only a handful of people are involved, or just the two of us.  I have been seeing many beautiful round-ups on the web – including my friend Iris who featured my Vegan Pumpkin Parfait on her beautiful Thanksgiving Desserts Post.  My friend Johnna also wrote a fantastic post on what to do when a guest has special dietary considerations, quoting many of my favorite gluten-free bloggers and me as well.

If you are still looking for recipes close to Thanksgiving, here are some of my favorites, in addition to the Grain-Free Cranberry Sage Dressing which you see pictured above,

And finally, a note of gratitude – I feel so grateful for so many of you who join me on this blog, year after year. My life has also changed quite a bit in the last year, mostly for the better, and for that I am also very grateful. Happy Thanksgiving!
