Plant-Based (Vegan) Thanksgiving Recipes (What to Feed Herbivores (Vegans) at Thanksgiving)

Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Holiday

Since August (yes! August!) I've been getting a few emails each day asking for ideas about what to make for Thanksgiving (Thanksliving? Thanksvegan?)

For some, it is their first plant-based (vegan) thanksgiving and they don't know what to do without the bird on the table and others are having vegan or vegetarian guests and wanted to make something they could eat, too.

Whatever your question is about this upcoming food day -- I hope this post will give you some ideas!
