The next few posts will be to help anyone finding themselves stuck not knowing what to make for their loved ones who have restricted diets.
First, I will start with an all vegan menu.
Vegans are people who do not consume any meat or animal bi products(dairy, eggs, honey, etc).
It is completely possible to make a vegan meal without compensating on flavor.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Good luck and Happy Holidays!
