Trust us: You can stuff almost anything if you try hard enough.

But if the idea of thrusting yourself elbow-deep into the gaping orifice between the legs of a dead body makes you lose your appetite, never fear. You don’t need to know how to stuff a turkey this Thanksgiving (or any other day of the year) to enjoy a delicious meal.

Check out these tasty “stuffed” vegan recipe ideas for a filling feast that won’t require you to reach inside of anyone:

Make your friends shellous of your cooking (and pun-crafting) skills.

Stuffed mini-peppers

Savory Stuffed Mushrooms

Don’t feel like you have to do something “traditional” for Thanksgiving. Start your own traditions with your family and friends! We happen to recommend customs rooted in flowing, melty “cheese.”
