Recipes for Thanksgiving Dinner from Happy Herbivore

Here’s my go-to Thanksgiving menu full of easy, no fuss plant-based recipes. Start with a delicious (only 3 ingredient!) butternut soup, then head to the main event: a “meatloaf” made from pantry staples, with cornbread, mashed potatoes, savory green beans and mushroom gravy that captures all the flavors of Thanksgiving!

I’ve also included a recipe for stuffed acorn squash that’s a perfect side or potluck dish and a pumpkin sage pasta that’s unexpected but perfect for those short on time. Enjoy!
