There’s no better way to spend Thanksgiving than with fresh, local produce.
And there are tons of delicious options for making delicious meals for the entire family.
Whether you’re a vegetarian or a vegan, there’s a recipe for every need.
Here are our favorite Thanksgiving dinners for vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike.
Brominated Vegetable Oil This is one of the best things you can buy at the store, but we’re sure it’s not for everyone.
It has a slightly sweet flavor, and it’s also pretty expensive.
But it can be made vegan-friendly and it also has a nice crunchy texture.
We love it on salads, wraps, or as a dip for vegetables.
You can make it vegan- and gluten-free-friendly too.

It’s perfect for Thanksgiving, too.
(You can use the same recipe if you’re making it for someone else.)
This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups of soup, so you could easily make 2 cups.
It’ll keep for up to 2 days in the fridge.

You could also serve this with quinoa, brown rice, or brown beans.
(We suggest adding quinoa or brown rice as a side dish.)
