Still thinking about what I want to do. Think I want to try my hand at Jollof rice, sweet potato(or apple) pie from scratch among some other things. Think I'll leave tofu out this year but that seems weird.

i was thinking the same thing about leaving the tofu out of it..
was leaning more towards just fresh from scratch vegetable dishes and i made a decent pumpkin pie last month that i can pull off ten times better for thanksgiving
im definitely dooing a collard green dish and a type of stuffing
sweet potato mash or a sweet baked potato type of thing
other than that im drawing a blank

literally pisses you off?

LITERALLY?

There's a product called Field Roast, or Celebration Roast for the holidays, that have become popular. I had the Smoked Apple sausage and it was delicious. This could be the focal point og your meal. Sides are all veggies anyway until people ruin them with dairy.

Do you live near a Whole Foods? They have a vegan thanksgiving catering menu and sometimes you can buy some of those dishes in their deli section. You could probably just ask to try some. If not, I've seen people actually take a whole product home for free because it's company policy they allow you to try something for free if you ask.

incorporate quinoa someway. how about fabricate a turkey cast, and then bake a vegan turkey shell?? hmm never thought about a turkeyless giving, but i enjoy vegan stuff with my meat. quinoa is always my go to base when i donnt have meat. use some legumes possibly? squash corn chile? mashed pots. those orange potatoes. kale . and beer beer is vegan

My gf's uncle's new GF. (bit much, i know) is vegan and they have only been dating about 4 months. Anyway she told him the smell of turkey makes her queasy/light headed. So he lied to everyone and said he was staying home because he had work early. (he's a nurse) Anyway, she told him she'd suck it up and make him a turkey. Fast forward, she made him a vegan turkey loaf thing. So he told her he was running out to get more wine. (What liquor store is open at 4pm on thanksgiving). Anyway this dude comes running in the house, destroys two plates of food, asks my gf's mom(his sister) for a to-go plate, and goes "Do you think it's cold enough to leave this in my car?" My gf's 8yr old girl cousin, tells him to man up and bring it in. Mess was too funny.

Sorry for the threadjack. Question, if a vegetable was fertilized with animal manure based product, is it no longer vegan?
