Meatless Monday with Vegan Thanksgiving Desserts

Welcome to the Miratel blog for a special Canadian Thanksgiving weekend edition of our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

Given that this is the Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend, we are sharing a few desserts that would be perfect to help celebrate the holidays. We have previously featured several savoury meat-free Thanksgiving dishes like a Gluten-Free, Vegan Turkey and Lentil and Mushroom Loaf with Savoury Potato Filling. All of these great sweet recipes come from our friends at One Green Planet. Click the link at the end of each recipe to view the full directions.
