Posted in : Food, Drink and Restaurant, Health on by : Tags: , ,

Thanksgiving may not be a traditionally vegetarian or vegan meal, but who’s stopping you from making it so? With our ideas and recipes below, you won’t be skimping on flavor while sticking to your meal plan or dietary restrictions this holiday. Let’s “veg out” this Thanksgiving with these vegetarian and vegan options:

Add something new to the table with the help of The Tofurky Company. Choose from a ham roast or a veggie roast for a flavorful meat-free option. The veggie roast is pre-filled with wild rice and bread stuffing and it’s ready for basting, roasting and sharing with the whole table. Dress up any of Tofurky’s products by grabbing some inspiration from its recipe page.

Eat Nice

Eat Nice, Philly’s vegan food company also referred to as “that vegan ravioli company,” has the perfect side for your Thanksgiving meal. Whether you choose the Meaty Walnut or the Tofu Ricotta ravioli, you’ll be eating well while knowing what you’re eating is all vegan, always. All of Eat Nice’s products are 100% animal-, egg-, and dairy-free. They are also convenient, delicious and perfect for your holiday meal!

24 Vegan Dessert Recipes from Minimalist Baker

Creating a beautiful and delicious vegan dessert doesn’t have to be difficult. Take a page out of Minimalist Baker‘s book and try one—or more—of Dana’s easy Thanksgiving dessert recipes. Expect everything from classic pumpkin pie to perfectly tender chocolate zucchini bread. They’re so good, even the meatheads will want a slice!

Savory Mushroom Gravy

Gravy is usually made from the juices and fat from the meat you are roasting. Well, scrap that and try this recipe for savory mushroom gravy from Isa Chandra Moskowitz, world-renowned vegan chef, author and restaurateur. This gravy begs to be poured over mashed potatoes and Tofurky… and everything else on your plate!

Pro tip: Use nutritional yeast to make the gravy creamier and to add extra-savory flavor.
