Kick Off Fall With These Vegan Recipes

Okay, I know what you’re thinking. It’s only July. You’re not wrong. With everything happening due to COVID-19, this year has felt different than the years before.

With the state of the world right now, I don’t see anything wrong with kick-starting fall just a tad bit early. Who cares if it’s July?
