Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup

Thanksgiving Round Up

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!

I have had several people this week come to me asking about Vegetarian and Vegan recipe alternatives for this holiday. It seems just about every family has at least 1 family member who has dietary restrictions. I thought I would compile a list of healthy, mainly vegetarian and vegan friendly recipes to make things easier. Some of these I have tried myself, and some I haven’t.

Let me know if you make any of them, and what you think of them!
