Main dishes have a special place on the Thanksgiving dinner table. For most celebrating this fall holiday, a turkey is usually the centerpiece of the table, but for vegans and vegetarians alike, seasonal produce, along with flavorful grains and hearty legumes, build dishes that are worthy of being a centerpiece. Choose comforting recipes, like Zucchini Lasagna and Vegetable Paella, or take a lighter approach with a dish like Tempeh with Sweet Potato Medallions with Almond Sauce and Chickpea Salad. Either way, these vegan Thanksgiving main dish recipes are sure to satisfy even the heartiest of meat-eaters.
