Today, modern Thanksgiving dinners feature a massive stuffed and roasted turkey; in fact, Thanksgiving is often called ‘turkey day’. However, at the same time more and more people across the world are turning vegetarian and vegan, and would rather not have a turkey as their centrepiece, thank you very much. Just for them, we’ve put together a list of vegetarian and vegan recipes to try for Thanksgiving.
