12 Easy Vegan Meals for After Thanksgiving

November is World Vegan Month, and what better time than the day after Thanksgiving to celebrate with these easy, delicious vegan and top-8-allergen-free meals? They’re all chock full of the good stuff – beans, lentils, veggies and good-for-you herbs and spices, offering a flavorful and welcome change of pace from the decadence and indulgence of the holiday.

I rounded up my favorite options for this time of year – mostly soups, stews and gluten-free pastas – but there are 25 vegan recipes on my site, including desserts, drinks, sides and more (just go to octofree.com/recipes and sort by “vegan.”)

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I came across this in my search for something concerning this.
