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 hiring 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.

Vegan Thanksgiving food

For new vegans, one of the most common barriers to going plant-based is Thanksgiving food. From the omnivore’s point of view, this holiday is vegan-prohibitive—from the turkey to its fat-rendered gravy. Does giving up animal foods mean no more Thanksgiving, too? 

Not in the least. A very minor tweak in perspective is all that’s needed to enjoy Thanksgiving in all its glory while also eschewing meat, dairy, and eggs. The restaurants below offer the traditional foods we’ve all grown up with, simply made with plant-based ingredients.

Puff pastry Wellingtons are stuffed with seitan instead of turkey, sumptuous gravy is crafted with wild mushrooms in lieu of animal fat and beef stock, and classic Thanksgiving pies are effortlessly whipped up with the help of indetectable tofu and plenty of non-dairy butter.

No matter what your Thanksgiving food traditions are, there is a delicious and satisfying vegan interpretation. If you’re not yet a confident vegan cook or don’t need the stress of preparing a holiday feast, lean on these exceptional vegan restaurants throughout the US to deliver a crowd-pleasing, plant-based Thanksgiving meal.
