A guide to hosting the perfect Holiday dinner

by Prana

Cooking vegan meals for yourself daily is relatively easy. It gets more complicated, and exponentially so, the more people are sitting around the table. Here are a bunch of recipes for dishes with more generous yields that will definitely charm even the pickiest eaters, and satisfy even the most tenacious cravings. Enjoy the colours, the smells, the tastes and textures, but most of all, enjoy the time spent together!

Appetizers

Sweet potato bites with guacamole and almond salsa

Simple, tasty and satisfying, these little bites will go perfectly with a cocktail or a glass of wine. Make sure you try one (or two!) before the guests arrive - they'll be flying off the plates the second you pull them out!
