7 Vegan Recipes Perfect for Thanksgiving

7. Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake with Hemp

Coming from a variety of the Cannabis plant that contains the lowest amount of THC, the psychoactive ingredient contained in Marijuana, hemp seeds are fast becoming one of the most popular healing foods out there and a great option for vegans. With more protein than milk or eggs, hemp contains tons of omega 3 and 6 essential fats. And it makes a mean vegan cheesecake. This recipes contains honey, which many vegans don’t eat.

This will be our family's first completely vegan Thanksgiving! I think I'll try making some gluten-free foccacia bread this year. And those yam and chard fritters look delicious...

I wish I had a chef to make all of these for my Thanksgiving feast! I do remember NATIVE AND INDIGENOUS WILDLIFE whose LANDS HAVE BEEN STOLEN and NEVER RETURNED...
I have ancestors on both my mother and fathers father goes bacak to TAPTICO of WICOCOMICO, of Captain John Smith and the loss of life and home that took place in Chesapeake. Somehow, (via partial assimilation) my ancestor Chief William Taptico I survived, and stuck a deal that the remaining land would not be taken until the final Chief had died upon it, at which time Chief William Tapptico II's wife took the money and purchased land in VA. Only three males of the original 3 tribes remained alive by that time. Within only two generations, the English had decimated it all, taken it all, and the cruel among them had recorded how they loved the rivers of blood dousing the flames as the skin burned from the shrieking bodies of men, women and children! ... REMEMBER the ORIGINAL INHABITANTS, and Get rid of CATTLE RANCHES, Turkey "farms" et al which remove trees and honor while bringing error and pollution to the Earth.
