The cooks are in their kitchens preparing food for a tasty Thanksgiving meal with turkey and all the trimmings.

For nearly 30 years, local vegan expert Diane Waltner has left turkey off her menu. She's the organizer of the Vegetarian and Animal Rights Meetup groups in Wichita.

Recently, Waltner welcomed KMUW’s Carla Eckels into her kitchen where she was gathering items to prepare a popular vegan side dish.
