How to Make Incredible Vegan Options for Thanksgiving

Why not try a vegan meal this Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving originated as a harvest festival of thanks for the Pilgrims in 1621. Today, we take time to be grateful for all that we have in life. While it’s easy to get stuck in tradition, diets change as our preferences change. Why not try a vegan Thanksgiving? You’ll feel good knowing your meal is cruelty-free and thankful that no animals were harmed or killed for it. If you’re worrying about it not tasting as good as a traditional meal or afraid that others won’t like it, think again! A vegan Thanksgiving can be just as tasty as a celebration with meat. Your guests will appreciate the fact their meal is 100% cruelty free!


If you don’t know where to begin, don’t worry. It is a simple and easy thing to do.  Let’s begin with the turkey itself. Did you know that there are several soy based products that are similar to turkey? They taste great and are good for you, too! Some that we really like are Gardein Stuffed Veggie Turkey Roast, Tofurky Vegetarian Feast, and Field Roast Celebration Roast.


Sides are pretty easy too! Simply use no dairy, eggs, or animal products in them. For example, instead of chicken stock and butter in your mashed potatoes use vegetable stock and vegan butter. For your stuffing, use vegetable stock rather than chicken stock. And for topping baked potatoes, use vegan soy cheese shreds, soy bacon crumbles, and vegan sour cream!  It’s pretty easy once you get the hang of it.


Chances are, your guests won’t even know you have substituted vegan options in your sides anyways! They will all taste just as good, only they are now 100% cruelty-free!

We can think of no better way to celebrate the holidays with friends and family than with a nutritious and satisfying vegan Thanksgiving! Happy Holidays Everyone!
