If there's anything we love here at the VNHQ, it's putting a decidedly compassionate spin on holiday celebrations. For us, Thanksgiving conjures images of baking vegan desserts, whipping up stellar meat-free entrées, and enjoying a vegan-friendly feast with the whole family. In fact, we love veganizing holiday menus so much that we created a collection of our favorite festive recipes for compassionate dinner tables: the VegNews Holiday Cookbook. In addition to stocking up on this can't-miss recipe collection, enter for your chance to win our annual VegNews Thanksgiving Feast, featuring a delicious Wellington centerpiece from Native Foods and a pound of Apple Pie Fudge from Allison's Gourmet. It's our pleasure to share the very best recipes, supper shortcuts, and Thanksgiving tips and tricks to make this year's celebration your best yet.

Thanks to these hearty, holiday vegan recipes, giving thanks at the dinner table has never been easier. If you're starting your Thanksgiving menu from scratch, be sure to start with some obligatory sides, including Mashed Potatoes and Cranberry Sauce, and then up the holiday ante with fancier fare such as a Green Bean Casserole and Squash with Wild Rice Stuffing. Worried about lacking in the meat-free entrée department? Allay those fears by preparing a sumptuous Seitan Roast or Maple Tofu with Stuffing and Apple Cranberry Chutney, and show guests the true meaning of "food coma" by finishing off your T-Giving gourmet dinner with a to-die-for dessert—to be more specific, Chocolate-Pumpkin Cheesecake. By planning the ultimate vegan Thanksgiving menu in advance, you'll have even more time to spend catching up with family and friends, which, we believe, is definitely the number one reason for the holiday season.
