Christmas is the most wonderful time of year and if you’re vegan, you certainly don’t have to miss out on the delicious feast! Here’s a list of 15 mouth-watering vegan Christmas food recipes. Enjoy!

1. Vegan Pigs In Blankets

Homemade chickpea sausages wrapped in sun-dried tomato blankets. The perfect vegan pigs in blankets for a Christmas treat or why not include them on a buffet all year round for a tasty vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free option?

2. Vegan Lentil Roast

This Christmas, my second year eating a plant-based diet, I wanted to create something different to replace the meat on the table. My recipe for this lentil & bean loaf is both gluten-free and nut-free for those who can’t (or don’t like to) eat nut roasts.

3. Vegan Butternut Squash With Sage & Chickpea Stuffing

We grew the cutest little butternut squash this year. Four of them to be exact. And all of them are the exact right size to cut in two and stuff with something delicious and serve to two people.

4. Vegan Black Forest Trifle

Rich, decadent and 100% plant-based! This vegan gluten free black forest trifle is so delicious and good-for-you that you could eat it up for dessert with ZERO guilt

5. Vegan Christmas Pudding Balls

Get in the festive mood with these homemade Chocolate Christmas Pudding protein balls! These energy balls are deliciously, sweet and gently spiced.  Plus I love the chewy texture when you eat them straight out of the fridge.

6. Vegan Mushroom and Leek Pie

This delicious pie will appeal to both vegans and meat-eaters.  Creamy mushrooms and leeks encased in a crispy, golden pie crust, a delicious main course for everyone.

7. Vegan Brussels Sprouts With Mushroom “Bacon”

People who are obsessed with bacon, are really just obsessed with that smoky, salty flavour. And you don’t need meat to create that. Mushrooms make the perfect perfect base as they absorb flavour so well, plus the umami adds to the deliciousness. So I’m confident that meat-eaters would enjoy this and not miss the real deal. It’s an incredible side dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas or just a Sunday roast!

8. Vegan Ginger Cake

This one step vegan easy ginger cake recipe is sticky & intense as well as being egg free & diary free.  It really is as easy as bunging it all in a bowl or food processor and mixing.  It is the easiest and best vegan (or otherwise ginger cake) you will ever make.   Can be Keto Friendly if it fits within your macros for the day.

9. Vegan Potato Dauphinoise Gratin

This Vegan Potato Dauphinoise Gratin is the perfect rich and indulgent yet surprisingly healthy side dish: think tender potatoes enveloped in a velvety, creamy sauce.

10. Vegan Maple, Parsnip, & Chestnut Wellington

Every year as Christmas approaches I debate with myself whether to have some kind of meat-free “centrepiece” with my Christmas dinner or not. Since I’m the only veggie in my family I often go with the not option, mainly to avoid having more leftovers than I know what to do with. Instead I have all of the veggies along with maybe a few vegan pigs in blankets leftover from our Christmas eve buffet. However, after experimenting a little, I think I might have found the perfect vegan Christmas dinner option in this Maple Parsnip and Chestnut Wellington.

11. Vegan Jam Tarts

If you are thinking that these are only for gluten-free, vegans then think again! I just popped a plateful of these over to my neighbours house and the plateful  vanished almost instantly (nobody next door is gluten-free or vegan by the way and they adored them).

12. Vegan Lentil Loaf

This vegan lentil loaf is such a great recipe for the holiday season! It’s festive, easy to make, healthy, and soooo delicious! I served it with vegan gravy, pumpkin and sweet potato mash, and cranberry sauce. Impress your family at your next family dinner with this lentil loaf!

13. Vegan Strudel

Aimee Ryan’s vegan vegetable strudel recipe makes a sublime vegan roast dinner option. Comforting portobello mushrooms and butter beans form the base of this dish, while golden filo pastry provides a pleasing crunch.

14. Vegan Cauliflower Cheese Gratin

This Vegan Cauliflower Cheese Gratin is going to be one of your favourite side dishes! It’s rich and creamy, full of flavour and seriously moreish!

15. Chestnut and Cashew Nut Roast

That beauty is my Cashew and Chestnut Roast, moist and delicious with the addition of butternut and carrot mash and completely and utterly vegan. I cooked it yesterday to welcome my vegan boy home from Uni for the holidays and it went down a treat. I jazz up festive roasts because I think we eat with the eye as well as the mouth and nose and this is a delight for all the senses so here you go, Chestnut and Cashew Nut Christmas Wreath, a Vegan Christmas Roast to make your mouth water!
