Manhattan (Greenwich Village & Upper West Side)
If you prefer a less traditional approach to Thanksgiving cuisine, Blossom is the spot for you! The restaurant is offering a holiday menu that includes a four-course meal with dishes such as beet carpaccio, Caesar salad, cream of sweet potato soup, parsnip ravioli, stuffed acorn squash, walnut-crusted seitan, savory soy-sausage stuffing, and pumpkin pie with coconut whipped cream. Blossom is offering the option to dine in or to pre-order Thanksgiving meals to enjoy at home.
Want to feast like royalty this Thanksgiving? Veggie Castle has you covered! Their holiday menu includes roasted herb vegan “turkey” with gravy, garlic mashed potatoes, vegan sausage & herb stuffing, roasted butternut squash & cauliflower medley, baked mac ‘n’ cheese, yellow rice, cranberry walnut & kale quinoa, cornbread, and Impossible baked ziti. The Thanksgiving menu will be available to order in-store only on Wednesday, November 24 and will be served on a first come, first served basis with the exception of catering-sized orders, which can be placed now up until November 24.
For a more traditional take on Thanksgiving cuisine, head over to Greenwich Village’s Red Bamboo, where you can feast on vegan herbed turkey, vegan smoked ham, and vegan Creole soul chicken. Sides such as mac ‘n’ cheese, stuffing, collard greens, and garlic mashed potatoes are also included, as well as pumpkin squares for dessert.

Stop by this NYC deli to pick up the Tabitha, which features breaded and fried stuffing, house-made holiday roast slices, mushroom gravy, Brussels sprout-scallion slaw, and cranberry sauce on a fresh baked roll. The sandwich is available now through Thanksgiving Day and pairs perfectly with the deli’s pumpkin spice milkshake!

Tofu Tikkā Recipe
Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
