A Very Veggie Christmas – 30+ Festive Recipes

A Very Veggie Christmas // roughmeasures.com

I have been vegetarian on and off for around 10 years. In that time we have had a few Christmases. My sister and brother are now both vegetarian, so it is a very veggie Christmas affair. Every December, my mum will send us a message asking what we want to eat on the big day. We will ping her some recipes over and then make a selection from that. I would happily have all the trimmings, without a show stopper. This year I fancy something different, I have yet to pick from my every extending shortlist. I’ve gathered here some of my favourite recipes, some show stoppers, some easy makes, to please meat free friends far and wide. I’m sticking savoury here, because there’s enough festive desserts on the internet to keep you going for another 100 years or so. Enjoy the festive season friends, may yours be merry and bright.
