Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes Galore 2015!Is it really nerdy if I say our Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes Galore makes me feel really, really excited? The reason is that when I see all the recipes we’ve made in the past year from all of our team members, it literally feels like a beautiful harvest and feast. Here are all-new recipes introduced this year, plus some of our old favorites. I also asked our team members to pick what they are actually making this year–those are the classics, guys! Think of this as our virtual Thanksgiving table. Welcome welcome! 😀
