If you want to surprise all your guests at your holiday table, with easy, tasty, dishes that will have them asking for more, here’s my Easy Vegan Christmas dinner menu and recipes to enjoy with your family and loved ones.
Between gift shopping or gift making, cleaning the house, planning and cooking the Christmas dinner from scratch – which includes grocery shopping, doing the actual cooking and setting the table – and guests to manage, the holidays time can sometimes be overwhelming, I hear you!
So to simplify life as much as possible, I imagined this Vegan easy-to-prepare Christmas party menu in three stages, from the appetizers to dessert, to approach the holidays without any (additional) headaches.
Contrary to what you might think, eliminating any animal and animal-derived ingredient while still offering a Vegan Christmas menu that is both festive and delicious is not difficult, when you have the right recipes :)
And if you think that hosting a Christmas dinner requires too much work, I want you to know that these recipes are all very easy, they have short ingredient lists, some can be made ahead of time (the day before) and most can be taken with you if you are invited somewhere. By planning out your festive menu and following these recipes, there is no reason to stress :)
From classic, traditional, Italian and French veganized versions to original ones, here are 10 festive Vegan recipes, which will be sure to please your holiday guests. Now let’s get cooking ♥
