I don't replace the meat - I just don't cook it obviously. My usual recipes are :

Mushroom gravy, Cranberry sauce (I just boil a package of cranberries with some orange juice and water),
Mashed Potatoes/Sweet potatoes mixed
Cranberry Apple Sage stuffing
Corn, grilled or boiled and shucked
French cut beans with earth balance, salt and pepper
Butternut Squash bake or casserole

Dessert-wise :
Apple pie, pumpkin pie + NutriWhip
Peanut butter Nutriwhip frozen pie with crushes oreos
Gingerbread with earth balance+powdered sugar icing
Chai spiced muffins
Black bean brownies with peppermint candies

I try to make at least one new thing every holiday season but these are the things I make every year.

Ugh.. I know... I don't like most of those vegan meat substitutes either! One Thanksgiving I made a Tofurkey roast.... OMG it was NOT good at all!
I live with (and have many relatives) that eat meat..... Someone else in the family usually makes the meat and I make all sorts of other goodies... And that's what I eat. I don't miss the "main" dish at all. Plenty of other veggie items to eat. I'm not strict "vegan" so, I eat desserts that may contain eggs. My problem is I can't have dairy (lactose intolerant) so that puts a damper on my celebration (unless I have made the item myself).

Well, sometimes the same things one would usually eat, minus the animal products: Mashed Potatoes or Candied Sweet Potatoes, Dressing, Peas with Pearl Onions, Fruit Salad, Pumpkin Pie or Apple Pie or Mince Pie.

For Thanksgiving I've also done this: Spicy Tomato Juice, Vegetable Barley Soup, Rice & Lentils, Apple Prune Dressing, Brussels Sprouts with Walnuts, Sweet Potatoes a l'Orange, Waldorf Salad, Pumpkin-Bran Muffins, Banana Bread.

I used to eat some veggie meat but I end up over the years liking so many other veggies that I have skipped the veggie meat

I like baby peas, I just heat them up, then sauteed mushrooms, greens, onions, red pepper. Along with baked sweet potato and butternut squash.

you could take cut acorn squash in half and bake then add warmed up baby peas in the squash for a cool decoration

What do vegans eat for holiday dinners? I really don't like the taste of anything made from vital wheat gluten (vegan roasts). I did see a vegan "Vegetable Wellington" that looked incredible. Has anyone tried this?

I've been looking for some vegan holiday recipes. Now most of my regular holiday dishes will just take a little tweaking to become vegan. I don't think I will miss the turkey and/or ham eating the side dishes.

I want to take recipes on a trial run before serving my entire family come Thanksgiving Day or Christmas. I know a vegetarian family that always has spaghetti but my family would balk at that.
