Chain store Whole Foods has announced its top sellers for the year - and making the list is the vegan Thanksgiving meal the retailer offered this year.
According to the store: "As the holiday entertaining season continues, Whole Foods Market is revealing some of their customers’ foodie favorites for the season, including the most searched and top-rated recipes, favorite prepared foods, and the bestselling holiday staples featuring new lower prices to inspire home cooks for the hosting season."
In November, Whole Foods teamed up with Philadelphia-based vegetable restaurant Vedge to create all-new holiday recipes.
The meal included a number of dishes such as mustard-glazed cauliflower, lentil-mushroom stuffing, 'cheesy' rutabaga and potato mash, sauerkraut-roasted rainbow carrots, and chocolate toffee mini cake.
And according to data, the meal was a top pick.
A statement from Whole Foods says: "Whole Foods Market is renowned for its innovative prepared foods offerings and bakery items that are inspired by local flavors.
"For the holiday season, the brand’s global e-store menu featured items ranging from full turkey dinners with all the trimmings to exclusive offerings developed by local chef partners.
"According to customers, this year’s top prepared picks were: the nine-inch Bittersweet Chocolate Pecan Pie from cult-favorite Brooklyn-based pie shop, Four & Twenty Blackbirds, the Thanksgiving dinner for 12, and the vegan meal from the renowned Philadelphia vegan chefs at Vedge."
