Plant-based Thanksgiving ideas for the meatless eater in your life

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Thanksgiving is a time to catch up with friends and family, reflect on what we’re grateful for, and eat a delicious meal.

This year why not opt for a vegan “turkey” and develop new traditions to satisfy your family’s cravings. Before the Butcher’s plant-based turkey burger provides a meaty-flavor and texture using non-GMO Soy Protein.

3 cloves fresh garlic – minced
1 T Cajun seasoning
