Meatless Monday with Vegan Thanksgiving Food for our American Friends

Welcome to the Miratel blog for the American Thanksgiving installment of our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share series. 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.

Last month, we enjoyed Canadian Thanksgiving vegan-style and today we are celebrating with our neighbours to the south (although these great recipes would be perfect for any occasion). All of our recipes today are both vegan and gluten-free – Gluten-Free Vegan Turkey, Easy Vegan Mushroom Gravy, Onion, Celery, and Mushroom Stuffing and Simple and Healthy Pecan Pumpkin Pie and they are all courtesy of One Green Planet. One Green Planet is a favourite resource of ours for all things vegan so if you haven’t yet, you should check it out.
