22 Vegan Thanksgiving Items from Trader Joe’s
Here’s everything you need from Trader Joe’s this Thanksgiving.
Wake up and smell the pumpkin! Start off your Thanksgiving morning with these delicious pumpkin-flavored breakfast rolls complete with pumpkin spice icing!
Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix
Another pumpkin-flavored breakfast option is this boxed muffin mix! Just add your favorite vegan egg substitute with oil and water, follow the instructions, and enjoy!
Pumpkin Tortilla Chips
And the pumpkin trend continues! These sweetly spiced tortilla chips are the perfect pre-game for your Thanksgiving feast!
Vegan Ranch Dip
This one goes out to the VegOut founder, Maggie Ortlieb (a.k.a. the #1 vegan ranch enthusiast!). This plant-based creamy creation is the perfect addition to a vegetable platter or even doused on your Thanksgiving plate––we won’t judge you! When in doubt, add ranch!
Breaded Turkey-less Stuffed Roast with Gravy
Because, duh! Trader Joe’s revives this fan favorite for another year of bountiful vegan offerings! If you haven’t tried this entree yet, get your hands on one ASAP! Even if you’re celebrating solo, it makes for great reheated leftovers!
Organic Savory Vegan Gravy
Can’t get enough of that gravy? You’re in luck! This year, Trader Joe’s will be selling individual containers of that glorious vegan liquid gold! It pairs perfectly with mashed potatoes, stuffing, bread, or the Turkey-less Roast––which already comes with gravy, but one can never have too much!
Riced Cauliflower Stuffing
Save your splurging for dessert and try this low-carb, fiber-filled stuffing! It has the perfect amount of sweetness from the dried cranberries and makes for a great flavorful addition to your dinner table!
What says “home-cooked meal” more than adding loads of butter to any recipe? Trader Joe’s has many variations of plant-based butter to lather up your favorite dish, including Smart Balance and Miyoko's brand spreads!
Cornbread is a traditional Thanksgiving accessory for a reason––it’s just so dang good and versatile! Mix the bag contents with your favorite egg substitute and non-dairy milk and you’re good to go!
Because we should probably include vegetables somewhere, right? Here it is! This item is a quick and easy way to get your veggies and please your taste buds!
Turkey and Stuffing Seasoned Kettle Chips
Kettle chips that are flavored like turkey and stuffing but are vegan?! We’re almost just as stumped as you are! Even though it doesn’t sound plant-based, all of the ingredients are actually vegan!
Gourmet Fried Onion Pieces
No green bean casserole is complete without the satisfying crunch of the fried onions on top! Trader Joe’s thought it all through and has the perfect product for you to pick up, sprinkle on your casserole, and call it a day!
It’s not Thanksgiving dinner without a generous smothering of cranberry sauce on any and everything! Grab this can, and check it off your list!
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
When it comes to potatoes, we ain’t got no type! This product saves you from the grueling process of peeling and boiling potatoes. It’s comprised of just one ingredient, sweet potatoes––no, really? And it even comes with microwave directions for those college students looking for a make-shift dorm-friendly Thanksgiving!
Who is Sweet Potatoes’ partner in crime? Marshmallows! These plush beauties are gelatin-free, making them completely vegan! Sweet potato casserole, here we come!
Coconut Milk or Cream
If you’re looking to make pie from scratch this year, you’ll probably need a can or two of coconut milk or cream! Whatever form of coconut offspring your recipe calls for, Trader Joe’s probably has it! Pick up Organic Coconut Milk, Organic Reduced-Fat Coconut Milk, or Organic Coconut Cream.
Speaking of pie, don’t forget the pumpkin! If you want to go down the classic route and make a vegan pumpkin pie, you might need a few of these!
Soy Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream
Who doesn’t love pie á la mode? This soy-based ice cream is a marvelous addition to your pie! And if your pie recipe doesn’t turn out as expected, no worries––it’s great solo, too!
Coconut Whipped Topping
While this item isn’t technically Trader Joe’s brand, we couldn’t leave it out! Elevate your dessert to the highest height with this metal can of deliciousness that’s carried at most Trader Joe’s!
Maple Leaf Cookies
There’s always room for cookies! These fall-inspired cuties are made with vegan ingredients and tasty flavors!
These Vegan Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, and Trail Mix cookies are just what you need to finish off the dessert table! If you just can’t get enough, rejoice in knowing they’re available year round!
Instead of paying an insane amount of money for chocolate chips that are clearly marked as “vegan,” save some coin with these “accidentally vegan” chocolate pieces of bliss! They’re perfect for homemade chocolate chip cookies or to sprinkle on top of your pie (on top of the ice cream, on top of the whipped cream—it’s the holiday season, anything goes!)
