Your Vegan Holiday Menu Guide
Whatever you celebrate, the holidays usually means tons of food. Some of us are fortunate enough to have dishes passed down through generations, that we cherish being able to recreate, year after year. And many of those dishes involve meat. Given that there are many more vegans and vegetarians than there were back then, it’s not surprising that sometimes those cherished ham-based recipes can leave something to be desired. When faced with the task of cooking for a diverse group of people, it can be daunting to please every palate. Luckily, in addition to accommodating many (but not, always, all) dietary restrictions, vegan cuisine can often be surprisingly straightforward to prepare, with many of these recipes including ingredients that are probably already in your pantry. If certain spices or grains are foreign to you, fear not, most of these ingredients can be compiled during a quick prep-trip to the grocery store.
Whether you’re cozying up with our warming Sweet Nutmeg and Cardamom Cashew Milk, or waking up on a brisk morning to a house that smells like Banana French Toast, these recipe ideas will help you get into the holiday spirit any time of the day. For evening events, the Chocolate Truffles make an indulgent gift for those with a sweet tooth on your list, and our vegan Lentil, Quinoa and Sunflower Seed Paté make a great addition to any hors d’oeuvres for a holiday party or potluck.
So for those eager to try something new, let these festive and colourful dishes, appetizers and desserts fill your table this holiday season alongside your favourite passed down recipes. Not only will you be pleasing the staunchest vegan at your table, but you can revel in the opportunity to show reluctant non-vegans how mouthwatering ham-free cuisine can be!
