Holiday Recipes for Vegans.

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, families may be in panic mode about what to fix for their holiday meal. More stress can be added if someone in the family has special dietary wishes/needs. 
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:
