127+ Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes Everyone* Will Love

For weeks now, I’ve had this blog post on my calendar as “BIG THANKSGIVING ROUND-UP.” Bold words. All caps. And it is! Big, that is. The biggest round-up I’ve ever done. But totally worth it, because after drooling over all of these fabulous recipes from food blogger friends far and wide, I’m feeling seriously inspired for Thanksgiving.

I set out to gather links to mains, sides, sides that could easily double as mains, and all kinds of meatless Thanksgiving recipes that can easily be incorporated into your family feast. I specifically searched for recipes with relatively mainstream ingredients that even staunch meat-and-potatoes carnivores are likely to devour. Appetizers and soups. Main dishes, meatless stuffing, potatoes and gravy. Pasta dishes, rice, sweet potatoes, winter squash, and all kinds of veggies sides – green ones, creamed ones, irresistible ones. And salads, too. They’re all here. Except cranberry sauce because who would put meat in cranberry sauce?!

Here are 127 (yes, 127!) Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes that EVERYONE* Will Love. All caps. With an asterisk. Here’s the asterisk:

* Except for our picky toddler, or particularly selective people, or people with allergies, or or or. Basically, what I’m trying to say is that these recipes are about as far from “tofu bean sprout foo foo” (my guy’s words for weird vegetarian food) as you can get – vegetarian Thanksgiving recipes that are perfectly delicious and also happen to be meat-free. 

By the way, I’ve been adding more to this round-up as time goes by, so now it’s officially “127+ Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes.”

Okay! Let’s do this!
