Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate with family and friends, eat a lot of food, and for many watch football. Thanksgiving dinner, which traditionally features a main dish usually turkey or beef, with several sides including mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and cranberry sauce followed by a dessert like a pumpkin or an apple pie or cheesecake can take all day to prepare. Creating this feast can be a daunting task even for the most experienced home chef, but have no fear Thanksgiving meal kits are here!

Finally, the plant-based Thanksgiving dinner you’ve been waiting for! Purple Carrot is bringing you a tasty vegan Thanksgiving meal kit box filled with a butternut squash entree, stuffing, sprouts, and cranberry sauce sides, plus gravy and dessert. The recipes have been designed to be easy to execute using the step-by-step instructions, tips, and timing guidelines included.
Please note: The Purple Carrot Thanksgiving box is only available to current Purple Carrot customers.
The Purple Carrot Thanksgiving meal kit is priced at $75 and serves 4 people. All orders must be placed by 11pm EST on 11/17 and will be delivered the week of Thanksgiving.
The entree includes a tasty hasselback butternut squash with cider glaze and a rosemary pistachio dukkah. An entree so good that no one will miss the turkey.
Sides include rustic ciabatta stuffing with root vegetables and herb “sausage”, roasted brussels sprouts with oyster mushrooms and garlic kimchi butter, cranberry sauce, and traditional vegetable gravy.
Dessert, my personal favorite Thanksgiving course, includes a lovely pear cranberry crisp with walnut crumble.
