The holidays aren’t the most wonderful time of year for turkeys. So if you’d rather not participate in the cruelty, disease, filth — the toxic waste in the conditions in which the birds are forced to live—then look no further than the mouthwatering vegan dishes we’ve compiled for you here. The star of the meal this year is a delightful butternut squash and mushroom Wellington which can be accompanied by two delectable side dishes!

We guarantee you’ll be thankful for this meal.
