It’s almost time for Thanksgiving! If you’re newly vegan, don’t despair. You can still celebrate our favorite holiday cruelty-free with these vegan Thanksgiving options in Las Vegas! How?
Vegan Alternatives for Thanksgiving
To re-create a vegan Thanksgiving at your house, local grocery stores make it easy! We grabbed most of the eats on KVVU TV’s More segment from Natural Grocers, which opened up earlier this year.
What to buy to prepare a vegan Thanksgiving at home:
Tofurkey Roast: This turkey-ish roast is made with organic soy and stuffed with wild rice. You’ve got to thaw it and then roast it in the over for about 1 1/2 hours. Get creative and add a little veggie broth to it and toss in some veggies, too. It’s small, but pretty hearty.
Edward & Sons Organic Mashed Potatoes: These organic potato flakes make an easy and quick side dish. Boil some water (we didn’t even put butter alternative in the pot), then add in the mix and almond/soy/coconut milk. Easy peasy and you’re quick.
Arrowhead Hills Organic Stuffing: Cooks in about 10 minutes. Boil water and oil, then throw in the stuffing and let it sit covered (heat off) for five minutes. Voila.
Don’t forget some organic cranberry sauce and mushroom gravy to add some flavor to the mix!
Heather Foods Pumpkin Pie or Pumpkin Cheesecake: What we love about Heather McLendon, the owner of Las Vegas’ Heather Foods, is how amazingly tasty her desserts are. And, they are nearly entirely guilt-free. The desserts for Thanksgiving are GMO-free, organic, oil-free and don’t have refined sugar. So, they’re basically healthy and ridiculously good. Order her vegan, gluten-free pies and cheesecakes online.
