VEGAN WHOLE TURKEY [5]

Going meat-free on Thanksgiving doesn’t have to mean giving up the bird— VegeUSA [11]‘s Vegan Whole Turkey [5] looks just like the real thing! The delectable-looking faux bird is made from soy and wheat protein and it feeds 8 to 10 people—plus it can be filled with stuffing for the complete effect.

GARDEIN STUFFED VEGGIE TURKEY ROAST [6]

Gardein’s tender stuffed roast leans more toward gourmet than its faux meat [13] counterparts. The meat, made from soy, wheat, peas, beets and carrots, has a flavor and texture that may confuse even hardcore carnivores. The  flavors, along with the included gravy, can pass for an extremely succulent bird, or just an amazing vegetarian dish.

TOFURKY VEGETARIAN FEAST [7]

An industry pioneer, the Tofurky [7] has been a staple for vegetarians everywhere. Their Thanksgiving [15] Roast comes with a bevy of trimmings including Wild Rice Stuffing, Giblet and Mushroom Gravy, and Tofurky Jurky Wishstix—their vegetarian version of wish bones. Wrapped in savory wheat gluten and tofu, the roast is juicy, and great for sandwich leftovers.

FIELD ROAST CELEBRATION ROAST [10]

Field Roast Grain Meat Company [10] makes a full line of faux meat products, and their Celebration Loaf, which looks more like a Beef Wellington than a turkey, is perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas [17]. The  wheat-protein loaf is stuffed with a hearty, sweet butternut squash, apple and mushroom stuffing, and marinated with a smoky, garlicky finish.

MAGIC VEGAN LOAF MAKER [9]

If you love the tradition of cooking your own meal from scratch [18], the Magic Vegan Loaf Maker [9] is for you.  The loaf recipes are seemingly endless: simply choose a protein, a nut or seed, a carbohydrate, vegetables, liquid, herbs, oil and a binder from a provided list. After choosing your desired combination, press “submit” and your personal recipe is created for you! The combinations are endless, allowing you to adjust according to what you have in your cupboards, and it is perfect for any time of year.

QUORN TURK’Y [8]

Quorn [20]’s products have been acclaimed far and wide by vegetarians to be the most “meaty tasting.” Made from mycoprotein fungus [21], the vegetarian Quorn Turk’y Roast may not come with any fixings, but it can be dressed with a side of homemade stuffing and some mushroom gravy for a complete meal.

With one of these savory delights, you and  your guests are sure to enjoy a tasty meat-free Thanksgiving!
