Traditional foods around the holidays are crowd-pleasers, but modern menus are expanding to include dietary needs and restrictions. A new survey from Whole Foods Market found that over half of Americans say that offering vegan options for holiday gatherings is important, to support family members and friends.

The first vegan chef to win Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, Chloe Coscarelli, joined Studio 512 to talk about vegan options for Thanksgiving, with help from Whole Foods Market.

Chloe has great tips and for vegan staples, like:

  • Frozen Vegetables
  • No-Chicken Bouillon Base
  • Nondairy Whipped Topping
  • Frozen Pie Shells
  • Nondairy Frozen Dessert

But if you aren’t feeling inspired, Whole Foods Market has teamed up with Chloe to create a delicious vegan meal for two for the holidays, which includes:

Cremini Mushroom Roast
Hearty, roasted mushrooms blended with onions, celery, garlic, tempeh and herbs to create a delicious vegan roast for your holiday table.
