Luxury hospitality chain Hilton is to serve a plant-based brunch buffet for Thanksgiving in its Beverly Hills Hotel's signature restaurant Circa 55.
The vegan spread - which was developed by Senior Sous Chef Colleen Blackburn - features potato pot pie, stuffing, stuffed sweet potatoes, squash lasagna, and 'meatballs'.
'The largest vegan population'
According to VegNews, Blackburn said: "Southern California has the largest vegan population, yet we have the smallest concentration of vegan restaurants in Los Angeles. This is what sparked my interest to create a Vegan Holiday Brunch.
"I believe each guest deserves a full dining experience, regardless of your dietary restrictions or choices, so if you're vegan, expect to get a delicious, full and comforting vegan menu. What I love most about these vegan dishes is that they are all fresh, healthy and lower-calorie alternatives yet packed with flavor. You won't even miss the meat."
All food waste from the buffet will reportedly be sent to a local composting station in Beverly Hills.
Save A Turkey! Vegan Thanksgiving buffet will be served on November 23-24 at Circa 55. You can make a reservation here
