Vegan Thanksgiving & Festive Recipes


With Thanksgiving coming up for some of you (Canadian Thanksgiving was back in October) I thought it would be good to share some of my favourite Thanksgiving and festive fall recipes. I made these videos last year but the recipes were too good not to share again this year. I got tagged in some photos of these recipe recreations on Instagram and I am so glad you guys enjoy them! If you try out any of these recipes, let me know in a comment below how it went.
