In our house, cooking and hosting a dinner for the whole family also means accommodating for quite a number of varying dietary restrictions. That’s why we usually choose to include an array or vegan dishes on our meal menu, since those tend to address all of the things our friends and family need in one kind of recipe! We’ve already long had our eyes peeled for great vegan Christmas dish ideas this year because we want to make sure we pick delicious things that our loved ones will really enjoy eating.
Are you feeling just as intent as we were, if not more, on the idea of making a few delicious vegan dishes for your family Christmas dinner this year? Check out these 15 fantastic tutorials, flavour combinations, and recipes that we’ve come across so far in this year’s search for inspiration and guidance!
1. Vegan garlic pistachio cranberry tarts
Are you the kind of person who loves experimenting with ingredients that don’t necessarily sound like they’d actually go together at first because you find that’s how you often discover some of the very best flavours? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Spabettie made these absolutely mouthwatering garlic pistachio cranberry tarts that are perfect for serving as an appetizer.
2. Vegan lentil, cashew, and quinoa stuffed peppers
Of course, a lot of standard vegetable dishes are vegan when they’re prepared and served quite plain, but you want to make sure your vegan friends and family members are satisfied at the end of the meal too, right? That’s why we loved how hearty and delicious this stuffed pepper recipe from Coconut and Berries sounded! They show you how to fill halved bell peppers with lentils, cashews, and quinoa.
3. Vegan puff pastry wrapped lentil loaf
Are you feeling rather intrigued indeed by this idea of recipes that are stuffed with vegan mixtures but you’re the kind of person who adores a bread or puffed pastry based recipe over something a little more calorie wise and vegetable heavy any time, even when you’re cooking vegan? Then we think you simply must take a look at the way It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken made this fantastic and fragrant vegan puffed pastry wrapped lentil loaf in surprisingly few simple steps!
4. Creamy potato veggie casserole
Did you know that just because you’re trying to skip the animal products in these recipes doesn’t mean you can’t still make something that’s deliciously creamy? Well, if you didn’t, then it’s time to thank Veggies Don’t Bite for swooping in to save the day with their irresistible creamy potato veggie casserole, which is the perfect example of what we mean.
