Being vegan at Christmas doesn’t have to be a head scratcher. There are heaps of alternatives to classic Christmas recipes, as well as exciting new treats to keep things fresh during the festive season.

We’ve put together a smashing vegan feast to get your tastebuds tingling – from Christmas nibbles to delicious puddings – we’ve got you covered.

VEGAN MUSHROOM ROLLS

Sausage rolls are a well-known Christmas classic, but these mushroom-filled versions will definitely hold their own amongst the established big-hitters. Serve them up with a great selection of vegan-friendly condiments and you’ll be onto a winner.

VEGAN GRAVY

This super-simple vegan gravy ticks all the boxes on the flavour front and will really bring your roasts to life. Get the veg base to a good, deep-golden colour before adding the rest of the ingredients to make it beautifully rich and intense.

WHOLE ROASTED CAULIFLOWER

It’s not difficult to transform a humble vegetable into something sensational if you show it a bit of love. Roasting cauliflower whole in spices, booze, and tomatoes injects a whole load of flavour, and gives you an array of wonderful textures.

VEGAN BROWNIES

Gooey, nutty and seriously chocolaty, these vegan brownies are a total joy to eat. Chocolate over 70% is usually dairy-free, so it’s great for making this Christmas treat dark, decadent, and delicious.

DAIRY-FREE VANILLA ICE CREAM

Dairy-free ice cream is even easier to make than the real thing – just mix it all up, pour it into an ice cream machine, then sit back and wait patiently. Enjoy!
