Mouth-watering (and turkey-free) Recipes for your Holiday Table.

It’s one of my favorite times of the year: the season of gratitude.

It’s a time when family and friends come together over a meal—or a Zoom call—and we share our love for each other, for this life, for those blessings in our lives—and we feast.

Here at Elephant, we know not everyone is vegan, or even vegetarian, and the holidays can be full of pitfalls and stumbling blocks for those of us who are, or even those of us who try to bring more plant-based options into our daily lives.

Thanksgiving is a beautiful opportunity to include plant-based, planet and animal-friendly food options on your table without losing out on taste, or the experience of a delicious meal.
