Paul McCartney has teamed with PETA to offer his favorite vegan Thanksgiving and holiday season recipes. Sporting a t-shirt with an image of a turkey that reads "Eat No," McCartney shares recipes for hot artichoke dip, savory pot pie, vegan autumn harvest casserole, faux turkeys, gravy alternatives and pumpkin patch "cheesecake." "More than 45 million turkeys are killed each year at Thanksgiving alone, and more than 22 million die at Christmas," writes PETA. Save some birds and gobble up McCartney's culinary concoctions instead.

I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
