In the age of food delivery, meal kits, and nightly takeout culture, it is perfectly acceptable to keep your kitchen spotless this holiday and order your Thanksgiving to-go. Think of it as ordering a catering service for an event, and there’s no shame in that. Vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants are offering more plant-based Thanksgiving packages than ever before, so we might as well take advantage of this delicious convenience. Pick your favorite restaurant from the list below and place your order today—really, don’t wait, because most order deadlines are coming up soon.

1 Herbivorous Butcher 

This Minneapolis-based vegan butchery and deli is first on the list for a reason—they sell out fast! The epic Turkey-Fee feast includes all the meaty mains you need for Thanksgiving, plus a few extras. You’ll receive two 2.5-pound Stuffed Turkeys, Maple Bacon, Portuguese Sausage, Fig Brie, Olive Havarti, and a package of Kelly’s Croutons to make stuffing from scratch. Most of these items are also available à la carte, which is a preferable option for smaller holiday gatherings.

2 Veestro

For those who don’t love cooking, it’s hard to justify preparing an entire Thanksgiving spread just for yourself. Veestro’s single-serve options are ideal for those traveling to non-vegan homes. Pack up your convenient Herb Crusted Turk’y Dinner, Turk’y Scaloppini, Cauliflower Milanese Dinner, or Holiday Shepherd’s Pie and you’ll have a Thanksgiving meal for one ready to pop into the oven. Swing by Whole Foods for its half-sized vegan pumpkin pie to ensure you have something sweet.

3 Purple Carrot

This year will likely be the first time many people attempt to prepare Thanksgiving dinner on their own. Purple Carrot is here to offer a bit of help. The five-course box includes everything you need to prepare a feast—the menu is set, the ingredients are pre-measured, and the instructions are clear. Just follow the directions and you can whip up an impressive meal for four including Quinoa Stuffed Delicata Squash, Rustic Ciabatta Stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, roasted brussels sprouts, and Pear Cranberry Crisp.

4 MamaSezz

MamaSezz is looking out for everyone who follows a special diet—even on Thanksgiving. The oil- and gluten-free Holiday Bundle includes a fully prepared feast for three to four people or about five days worth of holiday-themed meals for one. The hefty, 10-item box includes Veggie Sausage, Veggie Loaf, cranberry chutney, cornbread, rice pudding, scalloped potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, Hungarian Mushroom Soup, and more. We’re always pleasantly surprised when healthy food tastes this good.

5 Mac and Yease

For those who have yet to master the art of vegan mac and cheese, you can have it shipped to your door. Formerly confined to the hot bar at Whole Foods, Chef Ayindé’s Original Mac and Yease, Jalapeño Cheddar Mac and Yease, and BKLN Bolognese are now available for nationwide shipping. Heat and eat has never been so satisfying.

6 Plantable 

We were blown away by this vegan meal delivery company back when we did our taste test, and we’re extremely excited for the brand’s first Thanksgiving Box. The five-course meal for six upholds Plantable’s standards—refined sugar free, gluten-free, and nourishing, minimally processed plant foods—while still delivering on the holiday’s tasty classics. Expect a lentil-based Thanksgiving Loaf with orange cranberry sauce, Not-So-Stuffing Stuffing with Plantable Gravy, creamed spinach, mashed sweet potatoes with rosemary pecans, and pumpkin pie mousse with walnut crumble. Already have your feast planned out? Order this for the week after when you’re craving something lighter but can’t shake the taste for festive foods.
