Our Vegan Christmas Dinner Spread
by Emily Neill
This vegan Christmas Dinner spread will impress your guests, look 100% Instagram worthy, and make you reach for seconds, thirds (and fourths?). Complete with individual Mushroom Wellingtons, to-die-for crispy roast potatoes, and brussels sprouts you’ll actually enjoy, December 25th just got a whole lot tastier.
No vegan Christmas dinner would be complete without a centrepiece. And these individual Mushroom Wellingtons are just the thing you need to wow at Christmas. Making individual wellingtons may sound like extra effort, but is actually the Christmas trick of a decade. It means there's no messy cutting and no awkward slices.
We know brussels sprouts aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but these brussels sprouts — roasted with parsnips, topped with toasted walnuts for an added crunch, and scattered with pomegranate seeds for a little sharpness — will have you reaching to the bowl for more. Trust us.
You won’t find plain boiled carrots on our Christmas dinner table. Instead, make way for these deeply rich, sticky, sweet and tangy maple and ginger roasted carrots. They’re a flavour powerhouse and turn your Christmas dinner to a 10/10 in seconds.
Perfecting a crispy roast potato sounds easier than it is. It needs to be perfectly seasoned, have a soft, fluffy-potato-interior, and a flawless golden crisp on the outside. But fear not, we’ve mastered it. Five ingredients and four tricks are all you need.
Christmas is about carb-loading (amongst other things...). So we recommend going all out by making creamy mashed potatoes to accompany your traditional crispy roasties. Simply add another bag of potatoes to your shopping list and you’re a third of your way towards creamy-mashed-potato-heaven.
Our stuffing recipe is a twist on a classic. It’s crunchy, soft, savoury and sweet — all at the same time. Our secret ingredient? Click the recipe to find out.
We’d love to see your vegan Christmas Dinner plate, complete with all the trimmings! Tag us in your creations @allplants.
