Jasmine Briones was nervous during her first vegan Thanksgiving. She wasn’t sure how her family of omnivores would react to the plant-based Thanksgiving foods she had made for them. 

It was 2012, Briones’ first year of veganism, which her parents thought was a phase, though it eventually led to her becoming the Sweet Simple Vegan. She had done the best she could with the ingredients and recipes she had on hand for vegan biscuits, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. 

“My parents didn’t really enjoy it, but I could do a much better job now,” Briones said. “Nowadays, there’s a plethora of vegan products and recipes to help make Thanksgiving food vegan.”

While strictly vegan Thanksgivings probably won’t slow the demand for turkey anytime soon, interest in plant-based foods and Thanksgiving recipes has grown in recent years, and companies are responding to demand.

Vegan Thanksgivings are bigger and tasting better than ever
