30 Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes for Every Course

Happy Thanksgiving week!

I’m going to take the rest of the week off from the blog because we have family visiting and I want to make the most of their time here with us. But, before I go, I wanted to leave you with a collection of my favorite vegetarian Thanksgiving recipes in case you are still in need of some ideas. There are options for every course: drinks, appetizers, main dish, sides, and, most importantly, dessert. :)

I hope you find something you like and that you have a wonderful holiday!
