Where to Order a Vegan Thanksgiving Feast in Los Angeles

Not too long ago, cooking Thanksgiving dinner at home was a non-negotiable. However, with the rising popularity of meal delivery services and subscription kits, many are leaving the cooking to the pros and ordering ready-to-eat Thanksgiving feasts, without stepping foot inside a crowded restaurant. And in this glorious age where vegan options abound, there are a number of completely plant-based Thanksgiving menus available in Los Angeles—no substitutions required. Scan the list below to call in your ultimate vegan Thanksgiving feast.

Cafe Gratitude

Multiple Locations

In the spirit of the restaurant’s namesake, Cafe Gratitude is pulling out all the stops for this gratitude-themed holiday. This chic affirmation-based restaurant group is offering “Sides & Pies”—vegan and gluten-free sides and pies available for Thanksgiving—which all feed four to six adults. Side options include Lentil & Butternut Squash Loaves; Kale, Radicchio, & Persimmon Salad; Maple Miso Brussels Sprouts; and Mashed Potatoes & Shiitake Gravy. Pie options include pecan, pumpkin, and chocolate coconut cream pies. Order yours by Monday November 19 in store or by calling, and pick up on Wednesday November 21.

Erewhon Natural Foods

Multiple Locations

This upscale natural grocer is offering several vegan dish options for family-style gatherings. Just a few menu items include stuffed kabocha squash, lentil loaf, mushroom gravy, cranberry relish, yam puree, sourdough & roasted vegetable stuffing, mac & cheese, roasted Brussels sprouts, fall harvest salad, and more. All are organic and many have gluten-free options. Order online by Wednesday November 21.

Follow Your Heart Restaurant and Market

Canoga Park

The Thanksgiving menu at Follow Your Heart is completely vegan and extensive. Order the Complete Thanksgiving Dinner for one, or choose from a medley of mains, sides, and desserts for a crowd. Just a few of the offerings include a vegan “turkey” pot pie, oven-roasted rosemary-basted vegan “turkey,” creamy country gravy, mashed potatoes, steamed organic green beans, rosemary & thyme stuffing, vegan mac and cheese, and orange cranberry relish. For dessert, take home one (or more) pies, cheesecakes, sweet breads, or cakes. Order by Monday November 19 for pickup at the market between November 20-22.

Joi Cafe

Westlake Village

Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for what we have and to support one another. Joi Cafe was spared by the tragic Woolsey Fire, and as of November 11, they’re back in business as the evacuations are lifted. This is the perfect season to support a local business, including its employees who were affected by the disaster. This quaint vegan and gluten-free cafe’s menu is definitely worth the drive to Westlake Village. Stock up on the Holiday “Meat” Loaf, Pecan Crunch Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallows, Saffron Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Baked Cheesy Mac & Joi, Soul Stuffing, Oyster Mushroom Chowder, Mushroom Gravy, and finally, your choice of Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, Chocolate-Mocha or Lemon-Raspberry Cakes. The family-style dishes will feed four to six adults. Orders are taken in-person up until Sunday November 18.

Krimsey’s Cajun Kitchen

North Hollywood

This down-home Baton Rouge-inspired hidden gem in NoHo is offering holiday meal packages for those craving some comfort classics. Both traditional and gluten-free packages are available, and you can order them for one, two, five, or ten people. Fixins’ include Chilli-Rubbed Butternut Squash Steaks, Golden Potato Mash, Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins, Creamed Collards with Vegan Bacon, Brussels Sprout and Toasted Walnut Slaw, and Cinnamon Apple Bread Pudding. Sweet Potato Pie, Pecan Pie, Cajun Cake, Pecan Pralines, White Sausage Gravy, and any of Krimsey’s famous sauces are also available as extras. Order online by Sunday November 18 (or while supplies last) for pickup on Wednesday November 21.

M Cafe

Hollywood

Get your macros in, even on Thanksgiving Day. M Cafe is offering a full vegan-friendly feast, as well as a la carte options for individuals and crowds. The menu includes a Spiced Butternut Bisque, fall-inspired Kale Salad, Organic Tempeh Loaf with Mushroom Gravy and Cranberry-Ginger Relish, Whipped Potatoes & Rutabaga, and Roasted Baby Carrot & Haricot Vert Almondine. Desserts are also available as add-ons. Order by Monday November 19 at 5 pm by calling 213-393-1837 or emailing bibiana@thechaya.com.

Native Foods Cafe

Westwood and Costa Mesa

In line with the past year’s innovations and constant flow of new menu items, this national vegan chain is trying something different this year. Instead of the Wellington of years past, the company has introduced a new main entree: the Holiday Roast. It’s a plant-based meat base stuffed with sweet potato, kale, cranberries, apple, and garlic mashed potatoes, served with a side of mushroom shallot gravy. The roast feeds 5 to 6 adults, but guests can also complete the meal with a pumpkin pie or pumpkin cheesecake. Just plan ahead—all items require a 3 days advance order prior to in-store pickup. You can order online or through the Native Foods app.

Real Food Daily

Pasadena and West Hollywood

This restaurant is an LA icon; it’s been serving plant-based patrons since 1993, so in a way, it’s like family. This year, their “Thanksgiving To Go” meal includes individual servings of roasted vegetables, cranberry sauce, pecan praline yams, mashed potatoes and gravy, sage walnut corn stuffing, butternut squash or potato leek soup, hickory smoked maple-carved jackfruit, and a slice of pumpkin pie. Order via phone by Sunday November 18 for pickup in store on Wednesday November 21.

Sage Plant Based Bistro

Culver City, Echo Park, and Pasadena

Order an individual meal or fixings for a family of 4 or more from Sage. They have all the Thanksgiving staples covered, plus a few unexpected extras. Choose from Seitan Turkey, Lentil “Meat” Loaf, or tamales, then go to town with mac and cheese, cranberry sauce, green beans, gravy, stuffing, kale salad, collard greens, maple yams, and butternut squash soup. If you’re not in a food coma yet, dig in to the apple crisp, peach cobbler, sweet potato pumpkin pie, sweet potato cake, or sticky sweet cinnamon rolls and pecan buns.

SunCafe

Studio City

Just want to order one set Thanksgiving meal for yourself? Then order an individual box meal from SunCafe, and you’ll be good to go. You won’t go hungry with this all-in-one dinner; it includes a mixed green salad with cranberries, green bean casserole, candied sweet potatoes with marshmallows, pumpkin stuffing, mushroom gravy, filo-stuffed portobello mushroom, and a slice of pumpkin pie. Gluten-free options are also available. Call the restaurant at 818-927-4100 to place your order for pickup on Wednesday November 21.

Whole Foods

Multiple Locations

2018 has truly been the year of vegan, and while Whole Foods carried a plethora of packaged vegan options in years before, this year they’ve really stepped up their game in the prepared foods and hot bar categories. The same carries into their vegan Thanksgiving options—shoppers can stock up on a vegan feast, including a Romanesco Cauliflower Roast with Miso Bagna Cauda, Cremini Mushroom Stuffing with Kimchi, Charred Escarole with Tomatoes and Chickpeas, Roasted Acorn Squash with Maple and Hazelnut Dukkah, and Frosted Sweet Potato Blondies with Spiced Cashews. And of course, there’s the regular selection of vegan-friendly pies, from apple to pumpkin. Order online and pickup at your nearest location. Each dish serves two adults.

Veestro

Multiple Locations

Veestro is another great option to look at, if you’re looking to just order for yourself. Order a full Thanksgiving feast perfect for one, choosing from the Cauliflower Milanese Dinner, Turk’y Scallopini Dinner, Herb Crusted Turk’y Dinner, or Holiday Roast. All come with two sides, but you can also order the Hearty Roasted Medley for some extra veg, and round out the meal with a slice of pumpkin or pecan pie. Orders are shipped on Mondays and Tuesdays, so plan accordingly.

Veggie Grill

Multiple Locations

This popular vegan fast-casual restaurant has you covered this holiday. The national chain’s Holiday Feast includes a stuffed holiday roast, cornbread stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed yams, cauli-mashed potatoes with porcini gravy, and cranberry sauce. The meal feeds four adults, although additional sides and pumpkin cake are available to add on too. Order online by Saturday November 17.

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.
