While most cooking shows would scoff at the thought of producing a Thanksgiving special without meat, Martha Stewart has proved once again why she’s a pioneer in the kitchen. Having someone with as much sway as the famous host show people that the big feast doesn’t have to include meat to be successful is huge. Even better, she took the opportunity to educate her audience on the factory farming industry — with help from author Jonathan Safran Foer (of “Eating Animals”) and filmmaker Robert Kenner (Food, INC.)

Said Foer of his experience on the show, which aired last Thursday: “I couldn’t possibly have been more impressed by how Martha handled things,” he told Vegan.com. “Firstly, to devote an entire show to the horrors of the meat industry without feeling a need to offer the industry a voice. Secondly, she came right out and said the meat industry is bad. She didn’t mince her words. She wasn’t cagey or indirect. She spoke plainly and openly about the secrecy, about how they went after Oprah, about how they torture animals (her words), about how she’s going to have a vegetarian Thanksgiving. She told her audience, ‘You’ll probably agree with just about all of the conclusions in Jonathan’s book.’ Frankly, she came off as further down the spectrum than I did.”

We can’t embed the full video from Martha’s Thanksgiving show here — but her official website now has all the clips online. Included are recipes for Celery Root Stuffing, Brussel Sprouts side dish, and Foer’s Vegetable Orzo Casserole. Delicious!
