5 Vegan Fall Recipes That Are Perfect for Thanksgiving

by Carley, Move to Root

Leaves are transitioning from vibrant green to burnt orange, there’s a slight chill in the air, and pumpkin-spiced everything has, once again, taken its rightful place, well, everywhere. It can all only mean one thing: fall is in full swing. 

Fall marks the end of summer. But it also signifies the beginning of sweater weather, mugs of hot beverages, and one of our all-time favorite types of food: cozy autumn-inspired dishes. Read on for a list of our favorite vegan fall recipes—all of which are ideal additions to any Thanksgiving menu. 

Fall Vegan Recipes We Can’t Get Enough Of

We’ve collected some of our most popular fungi-based dishes that are ideal vegan recipes for Thanksgiving or any other autumn meal. We guarantee your guests will love them whether you’re celebrating with vegans, vegetarians, or omnivores.

1. Sausage Stuffing

Stuffing may very well be the most quintessential player in any Thanksgiving lineup. This Vegan Sausage and Butternut Squash Stuffing recipe is mouth-wateringly delicious, nutrient-dense, and completely animal-free (though we’d be willing to guess your meat-eating relatives won’t have the slightest idea). The sausage is made with Fy™, a fungi-based complete protein with all nine essential amino acids. This savory dish is a must when mapping out your vegan Thanksgiving sides. Check out the full recipe here.

2. Vegan Sweet Potato Soup

While we’re on the topic of sweet potatoes, let us introduce you to one of our coziest fall recipes: Vegan Sausage, Kale, and Sweet Potato Soup. This dish is more satisfying than other soups because it contains protein-rich vegan sausage and fiber-filled sweet potato. The combination of whole food ingredients makes for a filling, balanced dish so that you can serve this as a Thanksgiving appetizer or as the main course of any other fall meal. Check out the full recipe here.

3. Meatless Chili

Nothing gives fall vibes more than a steamy bowl of chili. Just picture yourself coming in from raking up leaves (or watching your significant other do it, as is our preference). Your cheeks are tinted pink from the crisp air, and the fragrant chili is bubbling on the stove. It doesn’t get cozier than that. This Meatless Chili with Dairy-Free Crema is a nutritious take on a classic dish that is loaded with veggies, herbs, spices, and delicious alternative proteins. So go ahead, have that second bowl. Check out the full recipe here.

4. Scalloped Potatoes with Vegan Sausage

If your goal is to bring the most revered dish to the Thanksgiving potluck, this Vegan Chive Scalloped Potatoes with Meatless Maple Sausage Crumble recipe is for you. Buttery potatoes are the ultimate comfort food, and the fungi-based sausage crumble and breadcrumb mix provide the perfect amount of crunch on top. The addition of Nature’s Fynd Chive & Onion Dairy-Free Cream Cheese provides a delicious boost of flavor that you wouldn’t experience with traditional scalloped potatoes. This recipe makes for an ideal vegan Thanksgiving side. Check out the full recipe here.

5. No-Bake Cheesecake Bites

Cheescake Bites Square

No Thanksgiving menu (or really any menu for that matter) would be complete without dessert. Enter these Mini No-Bake Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecakes. Rich dairy-free cream cheese meets sweet graham cracker crumbles meets earthy and herbaceous pumpkin flavor for this crowd-pleasing treat. These raw bites are super simple to make and require no baking, so they take just 15 minutes (plus chilling time)! Check out the full recipe here.
