40+ Vegan Christmas Recipes (1)

I feel like there’s a misconception that around the holiday season, the only vegan options are potatoes and miserable-looking salads. That, however, is far from the truth. In fact, it’s very much possible to have an entirely vegan Christmas and put together a versatile, festive table that will impress anyone, regardless of their dietary requirements.

The holiday season is one of my favourites as far as cooking is concerned because it provides the perfect opportunity to recreate old favourites. For anyone that’s looking to have a vegan Christmas, or simply give new plant based Christmas recipes a go so that everyone has a delicious option, I’ve put together a roundup of amazing recipes. To guarantee a day full of delicious festivities, I’ve included recipes for breakfast, main courses, side dishes and of course, desserts!

So, have a browse below, and pick your favourites. Included below, you will fin

  • Vegan roasts and loafs
  • Casseroles
  • Pancakes
  • Festive bread
  • Classic side dishes
  • Vegetable-based side dishes
  • Flavorful salad
  • Cookies and cake
  • Spreads and sauces

…and so much more! Be sure to save this post for later, and return to it when you’re getting your shopping list ready ahead of the 25th.
