A Very Vegan Christmas

Published 5 December 2018

Treat yourself to a mouthwatering vegan spread this Christmas as we rustle up our best holiday recipes.

Starters

Spinach & Pine Nut Rolls

Pan roasted pine nuts are so Christmas and the aroma creates such a homely vibe. Try making these as mini bite-size rolls and watch as they disappear in seconds.

Roasted Maple Cinnamon Chickpeas

Chickpeas roasting on an open fire… ok, this is not exactly traditional but we won’t tell if you don’t!
Made with ingredients any well stocked kitchen would have, these sweet little morsels will delight your guests and make your table decorations pop with their beautiful maple colouring. Yum!

 

Gingerbread People

Win over the hearts and minds of the tiniest member of your family with these super cute gingerbread people, or better yet, have some family fun by getting the littlies to help you bake them. Best of all these cookies double as a great edible decoration for the Christmas tree.

 

Herby Garlic Bread

A table isn’t complete without it, a testimony to the universal love we all share for the humble garlic bread. Feel free to be a little bit naughty and buy it ready-made from the supermarket. However if you’re need those extra ‘nice’ points from Santa try making it from scratch!

 

Mains & Sides

Christmas Tofurkey

Christmas kindness is all about keeping the Turkey off the table, which is why a Tofurkey is the perfect main for your guilt-free, turkey lovin’ feasting extravaganza! We love this stuffing but feel free to veganize your family’s favourite stuffing recipe.

 

The Simplest ‘Roast’ Dinner

Not everyone feels the need to pull out all the bells and whistles and that is ok. This is where this 1 hour roast dinner shines! After all, sometimes the best Christmases are the ones that are the most simple.

 

Christmas Coronation Salad

Potato Salad with a dash of mango and avocado- the perfect side salad for an Australian summer Christmas feast.

 

Green Bean & Tomato Pasta Salad

A simple cold pasta salad with a zesty sauce is great for bulking out your Christmas spread. It also works as a side salad for the family members who are a little vegetable shy and wish all greenery could be replaced with carbs.

Desserts

Mince Pies

Classic Christmas fare! Does Christmas even exist without someone bringing mince pies? However this recipe  is definitely a notch above the supermarket version that Granny brings along. Cold or warm, we love them! Just add a little ice cream on the side.

 

Chocolate Cherry Mousse Cake

Divine, melt in your mouth Mousse Cake will get your relatives feelin’ the vegan festive vibes! But careful – it’s so good they may ask you to make it every year.

 

Rum & Raisin Truffles

Devilishly good, these truffles make the perfect conclusion to your Christmas evening. They also make terrific gifts when packaged beautifully!

Have a Very Veggie Christmas and a Vegan New Year <3
