3. Gluten-Free Millet Stuffing by Vegan Yack Attack

Jackie of Vegan Yack Attack loves thanksgiving side dishes! Yes, stuffing is one of her favorites. She had this recipe idea in the back of her mind for ages. She wanted to make a gluten-free stuffing that didn’t involve expensive breads, but that had a better texture than quinoa stuffing. Millet stuffing it is! The texture for this dish is incredible but you’ll have to try it yourself.

4. Squash, Cranberry, & “Chicken” Salad by Liv B.

Liv is not a salad person. However, like most people, she CAN be persuaded to enjoy salad when its really really good. And this one, is REALLY really good. It’s so fall! It has squash, dried cranberries and a dressing that tastes like apple crisp.  The dressing is sweet & spiced with ginger and cinnamon, and a tad tangy to balance it all out. The squash is sweet, cranberries are tart, and “chicken” is crispy and golden. Each bite is a delight!

For the past 13 years, Toni from Plant Based on a Budget has been hosting an annual vegan Friendsgiving potluck the weekend after Thanksgiving. This year, she perfected the famous Green Bean Casserole – vegan of course! She wanted it to be a combination of down-right-tasty, but also a recipe that doesn’t require hours in the kitchen. She found all her ingredients at Sprouts, including the fried onions– which she thought she was going to have to make from scratch.

Sophia of Veggies Don’t Bite was never a huge fan of sweet potato casserole for a Thanksgiving dish. The overly sweet flavors, without the balance of a salty finish just seemed off to her.

It’s the perfect side dish for the next holiday dinner!
