November is National Vegan Month, so it's only fitting that we offer up some Thanksgiving options for those who don't eat meat. Suggestions for eating in, ordering in, and dining out are below. (And for the carnivorous, here's our previous roundup on where to dine on Thanksgiving, how to cook the bird, and tips for throwing your own cheap and lowbrow Thanksgiving party.)
The "Turkey: Fresh Direct has the entire Tofurky Feast for just $24.99. It includes the Tofurky roast, eight cranberry apple potato dumplings, giblet gravy, herbed stuffing, and a Tofurky Jurky Wishstix (which is just like a wishbone but with 100% less animal cruelty).
You can also get just the roast at local stores for around $13.99—you can find a store that carries the product right here. Wanna try something new? VegNews has tried just about every other fake turkey option out there, if you want options... though they don't include this amazing Vegan Whole Turkey!
The Sides Fresh Direct is still accepting orders for pre-Thanksgiving delivery, and they've even got vegetarians covered, with this hearty list of veggie recipes—including an alternative to Tofurkey: Sweet Potato, Caramelized Onion, and Butternut Squash Lasagna.
And once again, the NY Times is offering up an outstanding selection of vegetarian recipes for Thanksgiving.
