Whether you’re serving a big family or entertaining a few friends, you won’t want to miss out on these festive goodies. Check out our list of 13 vegan Thanksgiving items from Trader Joe’s.

Everything But the Leftovers Seasoning Blend

Picture everything you love about Thanksgiving dinner. It’s the potatoes, gravy, and stuffing for us! Now, imagine that in a seasoning blend. The Everything but the Leftovers Seasoning Blend is a vegan Thanksgiving Trader Joe’s favorite.

Sparkling Cranberry & Ginger Beverage

ISO a seasonal sipper? Let Trader Joe’s be your guide. Bring a four-pack of the Sparkling Cranberry & Ginger Beverage to your Friendsgiving dinner. While these drinks are tasty as-is, they also make a killer mocktail ingredient. Cheers!

Holiday Vegetable Hash

You won’t find us skimping on our veggies this year! The Holiday Vegetable Hash is a vegan Thanksgiving Trader Joe’s fave! It’s the perfect side dish to pair with traditional holiday foods—we see you, mashed potatoes & gravy.

Thanksgiving Stuffing Seasoned Kettle Chips

While potato chips may not seem like the most festive dish to pass, these are different. Bring a bag of the Thanksgiving Stuffing Seasoned Kettle Chips to the pre-dinner football snack session. Your fam will love these seasonal crisps.

Breaded Turkey-less Stuffed Roast with Gravy

When the Breaded Turkey-less Stuffed Roast with Gravy returns to Trader Joe’s, we know Thanksgiving is near. This vegan roast is one of our fave holiday entrees. But don’t forget those side dishes. This roast pairs well with all the fixings.

Mini Marshmallows

From sweet potato casserole to after-dinner hot cocoa, the Mini Marshmallows are a vegan Thanksgiving favorite from Trader Joe’s. Additionally, the inclusive grocery store offers Peppermint Mini Marshmallows for sleighing into the winter months.

Vegan Gingerbread Loaf

When you’re in the mood for something other than pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha, gingerbread to the rescue! While the Vegan Gingerbread Loaf does contain pumpkin puree, the festive flavor always gives Thanksgiving dinner a unique send-off.

Cornbread Crisps

We love a cornbread stuffing moment, but what about Cornbread Crisps? Hear us out. Pair these with a homemade creamy cranberry dip for the most festive appetizer ever. Vegan cream cheese, cranberry sauce, and Cornbread Crisps: check! TJ’s has it all.

Gourmet Fried Onion Pieces

Three words: green bean casserole. But what’s a classic GBC without Gourmet Fried Onion Pieces? Leave it to our favorite store to come through with the festive classics. Find us doing our vegan Thanksgiving shopping at Trader Joe’s.

Sparkling Pomegranate Punch Beverage

Set up a DIY drink station at your Friendsgiving party. Display the Trader Joe’s Sparkling Pomegranate Punch Beverage along with seasonal garnishes. Think pomegranate jewels, blood orange slices, and sprigs of rosemary. Go boozy—or not, and enjoy.

Cranberry Sauce

Some people hate it—some people love it. But it’s Thanksgiving, so you gotta have it! When you’re doing your vegan Thanksgiving shopping at Trader Joe’s, note that the store has three cranberry options to purchase. The Cranberry Sauce, Fresh Cranberry Sauce, and Fresh Cranberry Orange Relish are all vegan!

Roasted Vegetables

We love to see some color on our vegan Thanksgiving table. Trader Joe’s is here to help us make that a reality. The Roasted Vegetables Simply Dressed with Garlic and Herbs are an easy way to add veggies to your holiday spread.

Red Pepper, Cranberry & Walnut Dip

TJ’s is coming through with even more appetizer inspo for the holiday season! Pair this with fresh veggies and crackers for a tasty starter. Be sure to add the Red Pepper, Cranberry & Walnut Dip to your Vegan Thanksgiving Trader Joe’s shopping list.
