One of the many joys of Thanksgiving is crafting a holiday menu that your guests will love - which includes all eating styles. Whether you’re looking to diversify your Thanksgiving table with plant-based appetizers or trying to steal the spotlight with stand-out meatless sides, California Giant Berry Farms berry best vegan recipes are a fabulous addition to your holiday celebration.
Let's start with vegan Thanksgiving appetizers
Small but mighty — and essential to any Thanksgiving — appetizers set the stage for the plates to come. Blueberry Hummus is great for dipping with crackers or vegetables or paired with a charcuterie board to satisfy those who aren’t vegan or vegetarian. Our Crispy Artichokes and Blackberry Pesto are a perfect savory and sweet bite with a satisfying crunch.
Everyone's true favorite: the sides
Favorite fall veggies compliment all-season berries in this collection of vegan side dishes. Our Strawberry and Grilled Asparagus Salad provide smoky flavors of the grill, while bright strawberries pair beautifully with the nutty notes of hazelnut, adding protein and healthy fats to the dish.
Pair this salad with a Shiitake & Blueberry Green Bean side dish. Crunchy green beans and pecans are tied together by the earthy flavors of shiitake mushrooms and sweet bursts of blueberries for a healthy twist on a classic Thanksgiving taste.
Don't skip the desserts!
Vegan desserts can be tricky, since butter, cream, and eggs are typically the mainstay in sweet treats. Our Paleo and Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake make it easy to enjoy a non-dairy vegan dessert this holiday season. Fresh blueberries boast beautiful color while flavors from Medjool dates, coffee, and coconut pack the filling with rich, nutty flavors.
Our favorite Dark Chocolate Blackberry Tarts make for a chocolatey vegan holiday dessert. Avocados mixed with cocoa powder create the creamy tart filling, which is topped with plump blackberries and blueberries. These can also be made in mini tartlet pans for individual bite-sized desserts.
