What better way to start the holidays than planning the menu around some of the best vegan holiday recipes around?
Christmas parties, visiting families and fun times with friends usually center around food and drink.
This year I will be celebrating Christmas at my mother in law’s house. Luckily we don’t have to travel far! Both my mom and my husband’s parents live five minutes away, and his sister and her husband are about twenty minutes away. I’ve yet to come up with what my contribution will be. My mother in law typically makes a roast, cheese covered vegetables and traditional butter-laden Christmas cookies, so I will be coming up with a delicious side, main and dessert that everyone can enjoy (vegan AND omnivore). I’m thinking garlicky greens, Jamie Oliver’s nut roast and my Samoa bites made with sunflower seed butter. Hmm…I do think I’ve figured out my contribution just while writing this!
What are you doing this holiday season? Do you have to travel? If so, do you bring your own food?
Hopefully you gain inspiration here! Let’s start with breakfast for some of the best holiday vegan recipes I found across the web.
Eggless Breakfast Taco – be sure to serve with LOTS of yummy sauce!
Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms – Pea Soup
Raw, Vegan Carrot Cake – by Christine Roseberry, Care of Kris Carr This one is not traditional but who doesn’t love carrot cake??
No Bake Samoa Bites will be the hit of the party for ANY party, cookie swap or just to have on hand. They are TO DIE FOR. Reminiscent of the Girl Scout Cookie – but healthier.
