Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

Tempeh Stew with Brussels Sprouts, Sweet Potatoes, and Shiitakes

Tempeh, Brussels Sprouts, and Sweet Potato stew

Just about any type of tempeh—soy, quinoa, sesame, wild rice—works well in this stew, which tastes even better the next day. It’s a lovely main dish option for the Thanksgiving table, though you can make it any time you crave something hearty and warming.  Cranberry-Orange Sauce is a perfect accompaniment.

Red Quinoa Pilaf with Kale and Corn

red quinoa pilaf with kale and corn

I love recipes that are impressive enough to serve guests, yet easy enough to make as an everyday dish. In Vegan Holiday Kitchen, this recipe is offered as a Thanksgiving side dish; it’s so hearty that the addition of a cup or two of  beans (yummy with black beans), can make it plentiful entree. Or, to dress it up even more, use it to stuff small squashes like golden acorn or delicata. Can’t find red quinoa? Regular is fine; it will taste just as good, even if it won’t be as photogenic. Photo by Susan Voisin.
