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.”)
