A delicious collection of the best healthy vegan christmas main dishes to satisfy whoever is at your table this holiday season!
Thanksgiving and Halloween have passed and the snow has started falling (sadly) which means it’s time to start thinking about Christmas! Aside from family, friends and Christmas trees, if you’re anything like me your favourite part of the holidays is menu planning! Whether you’re a vegan yourself, have guests coming for dinner or just want to try something new, I have gathered 15 of the best vegan holiday main dishes for you to try. Sharing a feast is the best way to celebrate Christmas with your loved ones and it’s super important that you can accommodate everyone’s dietary habits. Holiday dishes typically feature meat as the star of the show, and often lots of butter but with a few simple modifications you can make some holiday favourites vegan while just as delicious! Try some of these recipes to make sure everyone you’re feeding this Christmas will be happy!
