A round-up of my favourite vegan recipes for the holidays. These vegan holiday recipes are my absolute favourite because they are simple, delicious, and hearty! These recipes are sure to keep all your guests happy and satisfied… even without the turkey. 😉
What is your favourite meal to make for the holidays? Thanksgiving just passed here and our family hosted one completely vegan Thanksgiving and a second one that was almost 100% plant-based. When I talk about what we’re eating for the holidays to non-vegans I often get one of the following responses:
- What are you going to eat?
- What could you possibly eat that’s vegan for the holidays?
- But how about the turkey?
And I get it, before I was vegan (or vegetarian), I truly couldn’t imagine a holiday meal without a roast or turkey centrepiece – the entire meal is built around that.
But I am going to let everyone in on a not-so-secret secret…
Most holiday sides are naturally vegan… or very easily made plant-based.
I think back to all the holidays I enjoyed before I was vegetarian and the beautiful variety of sides were always my favourite part. I mean what other meals do you have several sides to accompany a gorgeous main?
