I spent 24 Thanksgivings not vegan. I’m going to guess that I ate turkey every time the fourth Thursday in November rolled around. I understand the desire to have something familiar and the nostalgia that comes with holiday foods. Those tastes can remind you of times spent gathered with family and friends.
However, just because something is a tradition doesn’t mean you can’t change that tradition up a bit and try something new. Here are 5 reasons to consider taking turkey off of your plate this Thanksgiving.
And here are some of my turkey friends I’ve made since choosing to not be a participant in unnecessary cruelty and harm towards animals.
Today, I wanted to share 10 turkey-less Thanksgiving main dish options for you all so that you can have a delicious Thanksgiving meal without harming sentient turkeys. These options are packed with flavor so you don’t have to feel like you are missing out in the least bit.
I have included store-bought and homemade dishes so that you have a variety to choose from. Let’s begin, shall we?

I could honestly just end this list right here because these are the best option I’ve found. They will be what Alex and I have this Thanksgiving. We bought and stored our packages months ago so we wouldn’t have any trouble finding them as Thanksgiving got closer.
Will you be trying any of these options this year? Or are you trying something completely different? I’d love to hear from you!
