How to Plan a Vegan Christmas Lunch


So you’ve decided to veganize your Christmas lunch this year. Whether you’re vegan yourself or you’re just trying to cook for a vegan friend or family member, there’s no need to worry. With a little planning, you can serve a delicious vegan Christmas feast that everyone will enjoy.

One of the most important things to keep in mind is that not all vegan foods are created equal. Just because a food is vegan doesn’t mean it’s automatically healthy. So be sure to include plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in your meal. Also, don’t forget the beans! They’re a great source of protein and can be used in lots of different dishes.

When it comes to the main course, there are plenty of vegan options available these days. You can find vegan versions of traditional Christmas dishes like roast turkey or ham, as well as more unique options like Mushroom Wellington or Tofu Nut Roast. And don’t forget about side dishes! There are tons of vegan recipes for classics like mashed potatoes, green beans, and cranberry sauce. Here are a few of our favourites:

– Vegan roast: A vegan roast is the perfect centrepiece for any vegan Christmas lunch. Whether you opt for a traditional nut roast or something a little more unconventional like lentils and mushrooms, your guests will be impressed.

– Vegan gravy: No Christmas dinner is complete without gravy, and luckily there are plenty of vegan-friendly options out there. Simply swap out the beef or chicken stock for a vegan equivalent and you’re good to go.

– Vegan stuffing: Stuffing is one of those classic Christmas dishes that’s surprisingly easy to veganize. Simply use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock and you’re good to go.

– Vegan mince pies: Mince pies are a staple of any Christmas dinner, but they don’t have to be off-limits if you’re vegan. There are plenty of recipes out there for vegan-friendly mince pies that are every bit as delicious as the traditional version.

With a little creativity and planning, you can easily veganize your Christmas lunch and have a delicious, nutritious meal that everyone will enjoy. Merry Christmas!
