In the age of food delivery, meal kits, and nightly takeout culture, it is perfectly acceptable to keep your kitchen spotless this holiday and order your Thanksgiving to-go. Think of it as ordering a catering service for an event, and there’s no shame in that. Vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants are offering more plant-based Thanksgiving packages than ever before, so we might as well take advantage of this delicious convenience. Pick your favorite restaurant from the list below and place your order today—really, don’t wait, because most order deadlines are coming up soon.

This Minneapolis-based vegan butchery and deli is first on the list for a reason—they sell out fast! The epic Turkey-Fee feast includes all the meaty mains you need for Thanksgiving, plus a few extras. You’ll receive one Stuffed Turkey, Maple Sage Breakfast Sausage, Herb Cheddar, Camembert Sauce, Road’s End Savory Herb Gravy, Hickory Bacon, and a package of Dandies Marshmallows. Most of these items are also available à la carte, which is a preferable option for smaller holiday gatherings.

For those who don’t love cooking, it’s hard to justify preparing an entire Thanksgiving spread for just one or two people. And this year, there are sure to be plenty of intimate or solo Thanksgiving dinners. Veestro offers individual-sized holiday plates just for these occasions. Choose from the classic Herb Crusted Turk’y Dinner, Turk’y Scaloppini, Cauliflower Milanese Dinner, or Holiday Shepherd’s Pie. Top it all off with a half-sized vegan pumpkin pie from Whole Foods and you’re set.

This year will likely be the first time many people attempt to prepare Thanksgiving dinner on their own. Purple Carrot is here to offer a bit of help. The five-course box includes everything you need to prepare a feast—the menu is set, the ingredients are pre-measured, and the instructions are clear. Just follow the directions and you can whip up an impressive meal for four including Hasselback Butternut Squash, Rustic Ciabatta Stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, roasted Brussels sprouts, and Pear Cranberry Crisp.

MamaSezz is looking out for everyone who follows a special diet—even on Thanksgiving. The oil- and gluten-free Thanksvegan bundle includes a fully prepared feast for three to four people or about five days worth of holiday-themed meals for one. The hefty, 10-item box includes Veggie Sausage, Veggie Loaf, cranberry chutney, cornbread, rice pudding, scalloped potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, Hungarian Mushroom Soup, and more. We’re always pleasantly surprised when healthy food tastes this good.

For those who have yet to master the art of vegan mac and cheese, you can have it shipped to your door. Formerly confined to the hot bar at Whole Foods, Chef Ayindé’s Mac and Yease (and new Jalapeño Cheddar Mac and Yease) is now available for nationwide shipping. Heat and eat has never been so satisfying.

Can’t make it to a Matthew Kenney restaurant for Thanksgiving? This vegan celebrity chef’s line of frozen meals is the next best thing. Order a few single-serve entreés to piece together your holiday meal. Our top Thanksgiving picks include the Grilled Cauliflower Steak with Wild Rice, Mac and Cheeze, and Coconut Cream Pie. It may be a bit unorthodox, but it’s fitting for 2020.
