Thanksgiving is traditionally all about turkey, but choosing to serve vegan side dishes at your feast makes it easier on guests who have certain dietary restrictions—and these recipes can be just as delicious as the ones you’d typically make.

A true vegan dish includes no animal-derived products including meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, and sometimes honey, depending on the person’s preference.

Ida’s Devastation Takes a Heavy Toll on the Most Vulnerable

The magnitude of Ida’s devastation across the northeastern U.S. became clearer Thursday, as the impacts of climate change revealed and exacerbated existing societal inequities. At least 46 people were reported dead as of Friday morning from Maryland to Connecticut, with the vast majority of those drowning in their homes or cars under the — in many places — unprecedented deluge of rain.

Climate change caused by the extraction and combustion of fossil fuels is making extreme precipitation events worse and more frequent. The storm dropped 3-4 inches per hour from eastern Pennsylvania to southwest Connecticut — rates so extreme they
