Healthy Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

This Thanksgiving be thankful for your health and prepare a meal that is good for you, light on calories and carbs, and still delicious. Recipes do not have to be dripping in fat or carbs to taste good.

I'm making 5 plant based recipes ( all gluten free of course) that can accompany the turkey or be eaten as the vegan meal.

I realized that almost everything that is traditional for Thanksgiving can easily be prepared vegan and gluten free except the turkey. Most families eat sides of mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, and roasted vegetables.

My vegan menu usually includes soup,  cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes or butternut squash, cauliflower mashed potatoes, Vegan blender pumpkin pie, etc. I'm sharing a few recipes: acorn squash with chestnut soup
