Thanksgiving is that magical time of year when friends and family gather to celebrate shared connections, express gratitude, and to enjoy home-cooked meals in a warm and festive environment. You may already be thinking: What kind of meal do I make? How do I cook it? Will my guests like what I serve? Thankfully, there are resources aplenty for those who want to prepare delicious, comforting, plant-based meals that will satisfy guests of all dietary persuasions.

The sweet allure of those ubiquitous holiday treats is hard to resist this time of year, especially when you toss in the homey smell of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, revered author and founder of Compassionate Cook, teaches us how to veganize our holiday favorites. Tell us what you’d most like to veganize this holiday for your chance to win a membership to Colleen’s 30-day Vegan Challenge program!
