When it comes to cooking for our family and friend group at any holiday dinner, we’re faced with quite the array of eclectic likes, dislikes, dietary restrictions, and food preferences. We strive to make each guest we invite feel valued and cared for around the holidays, however, so we’re always keeping our eyes peeled for great recipes that might apply to more than one person’s needs at once and taste great to everyone present regardless. This Thanksgiving dinner, for example, we’ve been scouring the Internet for delicious vegan recipes because those meet everyone’s needs equally and we’ve also never tried one that we didn’t like!

1. Shredded bean sprouts with walnuts
Serving a veggie and nut based salad might not seem like something you really need to make dietary adjustments for when it come to animal products, but you’d be surprised by how many salad dressings aren’t actually vegan and, of course, you’ll want an alternative for the cheese you might have sprinkled on top! Instead, take a look at how A Thought for Food made a particularly satisfying green vegan opening dish involving shredded brussel sprouts and walnuts. It’s an entree veggie served like a salad!
2. Baked vegan sweet potatoes with maple, cinnamon, and citrus
When you’re cooking for Thanksgiving with vegans, there are quite a number of things that seem vegan-friendly at face value, because they are originally, but that you have to re-evaluate once you start preparing them. For example, sweet potatoes are vegan but the butter they’re often slathered with or the milk you might use to mash them isn’t. Instead, give these delicious baked vegan sweet potatoes with maple, cinnamon, and citrus from Healthy, Happy Life a try!
