Avoid The Meat During The Holidays With These 15 Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes


It is that time of year again, at least in the States where people celebrate the holiday known as Thanksgiving. This year I compiled some of my favorite vegan Thanksgiving recipes. My partner and I have decided to not celebrate at all. No dinner or anything, but I definitely will make a harvest dinner on the weekend. The actual day of the holiday, I have decided to volunteer my time to help feed those in need. I encourage all those who do celebrate to consider volunteering, giving money to progressive Native American causes, or educating yourself about the history of this holiday. If you do have a dinner, as always I recommend eating vegan.
