1. Yippee-Ki-Yay Holiday Vegan Cheeseball

When I was newly vegan, I brought this to a family gathering. Some in-law family members still don’t know that they enthusiastically took down a vegan cheeseball. This is a crowd-pleaser.

Serve over Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes or pasta with IKEA vegan lingonberry jam or cranberry sauce on the side. These also make a great appetizer sans a starch.

7. No-Boil Vegan Ricotta Stuffed Pasta Shells In Red Sauce

It’s a great make-ahead dish to serve for special occasions or when you want that ace-in-the-hole, smell the house up good, family meal. If you are a two-person household, you will love the leftovers.

8. Classic Vegan Muffin Tin Stuffing

Why do people sometimes call it dressing? Perhaps dressing sounds more polite than stuffing? This post is all about how to make Classic Vegan Muffin Tin Stuffing and it’s super yummy.

I don’t care what it’s called. It’s my favorite part of Thanksgiving. Seriously, this stuffing dressing plus Amazing No-Chicken Vegan Gravy, equals Thanksgiving bliss.

Although it goes without saying, you don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving or the holidays to make this. This is true comfort food.

I made two batches this year and it was still the first leftovers item to go.

12. Pan-Seared Vegan Gnocchi With Brussels, Kale, Toasted Walnuts & Garlic Shake

Occasionally while watching The Food Network, I see awesome things. While flipping channels, I came across the tail end of an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. I watched in awe as The Google Chef prepared beautiful, vegan pan-seared gnocchi with kale and Brussels sprouts.

I did some digging and I found a version of the recipe on The Food Network website. It was a good start, but it was missing a few quantities. I got to work, weighed some potatoes, and measured my ingredients. I’ve made this several times, adapting it to this more precise recipe. Additionally, I added 5-Minute Vegan Garlic Hemp Seed Parm to really make this dish sing.
