Thanksgiving is right around the corner, but eating turkey doesn’t have to be. Check out these awesome alternatives to a meat-eating holiday — and maybe start a new tradition!

Tofurky Roast

Tofurky has practically become a household name, and of course offers a holiday feast! You can buy just the roast, the roast with gravy, or the entire feast. Though their marketing says vegetarian, it is 100% vegan.

Gardein Holiday Roast

Only 150 calories per serving, this turkey substitute has the looks and taste that befit a holiday. The roast is made with soy protein and wheat. Comes with gravy!

Vegetarian Plus, Whole Vegan Turkey

If you want the look of a traditional Thanksgiving, Vegetarian Plus makes an entire turkey, entirely vegan. You may even be able to fool your guests! There is stuffing inside and the “bird” comes with gravy. Four pounds and primarily soy based, it contains 140 calories per serving and costs around $50.00.



Field Roast Celebration Roast

The Seattle company has made grain meat since 1997 and improved their celebration roast over the years. You can get a 1lb roast with “sausage” and sage stuffing, or the 2lb roast with gravy and cranberry and butternut squash stuffing. At around 230 calories per serving, a Field Roast will impress both your meat eating and non meat eating friends and family!


Trader Joe’s Turkey-less Stuffed Roast with Gravy

At only $9.99 for a 40oz package, TJ’s breaded roast is by far the most attractive on this list when it comes to price. The wild rice stuffing and crispy herbed breading also set it apart from the other brands. Made with soy and grain and 200 calories per serving.
