My favorite plant-based Thanksgiving sides that are also hearty, delicious, and gluten-free! Mix and match to create a cozy vegan Thanksgiving spread.
I’ve seen 33 Thanksgivings but this will be the first year that I’m hosting people!
In preparation to be a good hostess, I have a lot of questions about hosting etiquette, like:
Is it too soon to decorate the house for Christmas?
How many camping chairs can I fit around the kitchen table?
Is there such a thing as too many Thanksgiving sides?
Thanksgiving sides are my *favorite* part of the whole holiday menu.
I’ve never found it hard to have an entirely plant-based Thanksgiving loading up on my favorite side dish recipes.
This collection of My Favorite Plant-Based Thanksgiving Sides has something for everyone this Thanksgiving Day.
I wish I could have you *all* over for Thanksgiving, friends, but I’m pretty sure I don’t own enough camping chairs for that, so this is the next best thing!
Mix and match these vegan and gluten-free dishes to create a beautiful bountiful holiday spread to share.
And these sassy sides aren’t just for Thanksgiving!
