With Thanksgiving around the corner, many vegans in the United States are gearing up for some awkward meals and conversations with their not-so-vegan families. With over 300,000 vegan meals given this year already, the Million Dollar Vegan team has seen the transformative power of offering delicious plant-based options to our non-vegan counterparts. After all, the key to a person’s heart is often through their stomach.

Skipping the turkey and bringing something plant-based that’s sure-to-please has never been easier. We’ve compiled some of our favorite turkey alternatives below!
