Natural Grocers Vegan Thanksgiving Feast

Close your eyes, no, wait, keep reading… but imagine in your mind a typical Thanksgiving feast. Are you picturing a plethora of food and gathering with the ones you love? No matter what images come to mind, maybe it’s grandma’s signature pie or the days upon days of leftovers, we know that Thanksgiving is a very turkey-focused Holiday, which, if you’re a vegan or vegetarian, may have you feeling left out. It doesn’t have to anymore. Natural Grocers’ in-house Natural Food Chef, Karen Falbo has developed a fantastically flavorful vegan/vegetarian feast in conjunction with two vegan pioneers—a husband-and-wife team known as The Doctor & The Chef—to make your Holiday a fun and festive plant-based celebration.
