The Best Vegan Christmas Party Food
Hosting a Christmas party and want to impress? Rustle up these simple but deliciously effective vegan-friendly bite-sized delights this Christmas to amaze all of your guests, including those following a plant-based diet.
A celebration isn’t truly a celebration unless there are some sausage rolls somewhere in the party. These vegan sausage rolls are perfect for a holiday party: deeply savoury, these are great with a festive vegan red wine. Whether you make your own vegan puff pastry or buy a vegan puff pastry that’s ready to use, these are guaranteed to impress your guests, vegan or not.
This may seem like an odd choice, but this is because bruschetta is always a good idea. It is highly adaptable and can be made with your favourite more wintry vegetables, like roasted red onion and pumpkin or sweet potato, roasted tomato and pea. It’s a great finger food to have at any party, and your Christmas do’s are no exception.
We all love a good burger, no matter the occasion — so why not rustle up these fresh and herby burgers? Make mini patties for vegan burger sliders, or take the bun and veg out of the equation completely and serve the mini patties with the green tahini as a nice dipping sauce.
Keep things classic with this deceptively easy and tasty tomato tart. Made using only three ingredients (three, if you aren’t including kitchen staples olive oil and salt), it's a simple cooking process but your guests will think you’ve slaved away making this one. Its filling is sour and juicy while the pastry will be crisp and flaky: but all you have to do is let the oven do the heavy lifting.
Spring rolls are always a good idea at any event. Salty, sweet, crunchy and ultimately super flavourful. Simply multiply the portions to make sure every guest gets one (or five, these treats are too good not to go back for more).
These shortbread bites are pure slices of heaven. Sweet chocolate meets salty peanut butter to make a fancy (and vegan-friendly) Reece’s Pieces/Shortbread hybrid that is certain to go down a treat (pun completely intended). With a quick prep and cook time, this is a perfect way to get some lovely party food to your guests using only will and some fridge space.
Shortbread during the holidays is a staple — in fact, it has typically been eaten at Christmas and other special occasions since the 12th century. Make these buttery and crumbly treats to get your guests in the Christmas spirit, or try adding your own festive spin on them with some orange flavouring, dried fruit or some cinnamon and nutmeg.
