On Friday, November 19, animal-advocate and vegan talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres featured a segment on her show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, with her personal chef, Roberto Martin, on how to cook a vegan Thanksgiving. The meal included homemade seitan turkey roast, wild mushroom gravy, vegan stuffing, mashed sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and dairy-free pumpkin cheesecake, which Ellen said her wife, Portia de Rossi, loved.
