This Thanksgiving, let’s give turkeys something to be thankful for – compassionate cooking.

Sadly, around 45 million turkeys are slaughtered each year for Thanksgiving alone. During this time of gratitude, we can all help these smart and social birds by leaving them off our holiday tables.

Thankfully, there are so many delicious plant-based options available for your compassionate celebration.

Here are our tips for a vegan Thanksgiving feast that will delight every eater around your holiday table:

For a compassionate centerpiece dish for your holiday table, try one of these oven-ready main courses: Gardein Holiday Roast, Savory Stuffed Turk’yTofurky Feast, Field Roast Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute or The Edgy Veg’s Vegan Holiday Roast.

What would the entree be without the comfort-food sides that are the stars of any Thanksgiving menu? Try Minimalist Baker’s Vegan Green Bean Casserole,’s mashed potatoes and herbed vegan gravy, and everyone’s favorite, holiday stuffing.

Pumpkin pie is the classic Thanksgiving treat. You could also try pecan pie or apple crisp. Oh She Glows even has a breakfast casserole to whip up with any leftover pumpkin pie that hasn’t been gobbled up.

Want a delicious drink to wash it all down? Try this egg-free festive nog.
