1. The Best Vegan Stuffing Recipe
Considering this recipe claims to be the best vegan stuffing, we had to include it on the list. It's not too different from a regular stuffing, though it takes about the same time to make.

2. The Best Damn Vegan Mashed Potatoes Recipe
No Thanksgiving feast is complete without a heaping bowl of mashed potatoes. Considering these are noted as being the best damn vegan mashed potatoes, it seemed fitting to include them on the list. Requiring only six ingredients, they're so unbelievably easy to make.
3. Dill Roasted Potatoes With Lemon Recipe
If making mashed potatoes feels like too much work for you, these dill roasted potatoes with lemon will work just as well. You have to have at least one potato dish on the Thanksgiving table, might as well be this one.
4. Vegan Leek & Mushroom Stuffing Recipe
You can never go wrong with stuffing, especially because there's no one way to make it. With so many different variations, we had to include another on this list. We're pretty big fans of mushrooms, so this one sold us right off the bat. Not to mention, it's hearty and delicious.

Sweet potato casseroles of any kind can be hit or miss, but because this one features butternut pecans, everyone will have some on their plate. A classic combination of sugar and cards, it really represents what Thanksgiving is all about.
8. Roasted Cauliflower Salad Recipe
We didn't want to include a salad on this list, because it's so cliché for a roundup of vegan Thanksgiving sides, but this one is too good to pass up. It's an interesting combination of veggies and trimmings, but it all works to create fireworks in your mouth. Yes, we realize we're talking about a salad.
9. Easy Vegan Gluten-Free Biscuits Recipe
