Everyone will love these vegan ideas devised for the Holiday season. These clever plant-based recipes are designed to be crowd-pleasing and properly festive and as well as being meat-free and dairy-free, the recipes boast seasonal produce and sensational flavor.
As the holiday season gets underway, serve small plates and seasonal sharing platters, such as Chestnut & Porcini Cream Mille-Feuille and Rainbow Chard Tartlets. For a cozy pre-Christmas meal, look to the Saffron Ravioli with Heart of Palm & Chile or Deep Dijon Pie. And on Christmas day make a stunning vegan centerpiece by embracing the mock vegan meat trend. Try a carvable Smoky Stuffed Roast with Pine Nut, Lemon, & Herb Stuffing accompanied by Piglets in Rafts, and Chargrilled Hispi Cabbage. Follow with delicious Snowball Layered Dessert with Lime & Lemonade "Egg Nog" or Panacotta with Candied Kumquats. Come Boxing day, it’s time to love your leftovers—dine on Mushroom Paté from the delicious vegan Wellington or slice up any remaining Seasonal Stuffing for the perfect hot sandwich. And to see in the New Year vegan-style keep it simple with one-pot make-ahead Roasted Eggplant & Puy Lentil Lasagne or Faux Fish Pie with Herby Mash so that you are free to enjoy the celebrations!
