Thanksgiving is just around the corner which means the holiday season is quickly approaching … and I’ve rounded up my favorite 30 vegan Thanksgiving side dishes to help inspire you in putting together your holiday menu!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for a day of cooking, eating, lounging and spending time with loved ones.

Every year for Thanksgiving, I always like to try out at least one new dish. Sometimes, they are a winning success and other times, they’ve been a kitchen fail. I still can’t live down a pumpkin banana pie I attempted about eight years ago. It’s usually a topic of conversation anytime Thanksgiving menu planning is involved!
