36 Unbeatable Vegan Recipes For A Stress-Free Christmas

Okay so Christmas is 10 days away, and as the countdown begins, it’s easy to start stressing about what you’re going to eat if you’re a vegan. So I think it’s officially time to do a compilation of Vegan recipes that are perfect for the big day! Whether you’re new to veganism or not, this is the year to make your own meat-free traditions and celebrate Christmas with a cruelty free plate!

And if you’re struggling for vegan gift ideas, check out my latest post – 30+ Vegan Christmas Gifts That Are Guaranteed To Impress – all the gifts are under £30!

For us vegan’s, Christmas can be a stressful time. Most of us spend a whole day surrounded by non-vegan food, with friends & family who want to dig into one of the 10 million turkeys that are slaughtered each year for this one day. And really, who wants a dry ass turkey for dinner this year? Not me! Especially with the abundance of vegan options available this year. I keep saying it, but 2018 has definitely been the year of veganism. More and more people are starting to open their eyes to the cruelty on their plates and make the leap to veganism.

A lot of new vegan products have been released this year, restaurants have added yummy vegan options to their menus, dairy farms have closed down & the term “vegan” is constantly being brought up in the news. Good or bad, it gets people talking about veganism and that’s all it takes for people to start doing their own research. And the more people that do turn to veganism, the more in demand vegan products will be, and the more vegan products will be created to make being vegan easier & more “normal” in today’s world.

40 Unbeatable Vegan Recipes For A Stress-Free Christmas

On a side note, since it’s the time of year when most people are invited to parties, dinners & events – One of lessons I’ve learnt since going vegan is to not be embarrassed to bring your own food wherever you go. I used to always feel so weird and uncomfortable bringing my vegan food to someone else’s house or event, but actually, I think it’s a relief for not only yourself but the host too. And also, I think it’s cool to bring your own food – you’re doing your own thing and you don’t care about what other people think.

In most cases, people genuinely have no idea what to cook for a vegan, and I don’t blame them, because I felt exactly the same when I first decided to go vegan. But if you bring your own food, you know 100% that you’ll be able to eat with everyone else (so you won’t feel left out) and it means you have the opportunity to show off all your yummy vegan food! So if you have an event to go to this Christmas, I say, knock up an amazing vegan dish, whack it in some tupperware and be proud!

I’ve been really lucky this year, and the past few times I’ve been round to a friend’s house for dinner or to a family gathering, the host has prepared a vegan dish for me! It means a lot when someone does a separate dish for you, so if you’re not vegan & you have a vegan guest coming for Christmas this year, then these recipes are going to save your ass too!
