Do you know what you’re making for Christmas dinner yet? If you’re a meat eater, it’s most likely to be a traditional roast turkey. For a vegetarian however, what you cook for your Christmas meal can be a bit more challenging. I’m here to help you out with these five delicious and festive vegetarian roast dinner alternatives to try this Christmas.
I’ve eaten all kinds of different things for Christmas dinner from the ubiquitous nut roast, to Delia’s parsnip roulade and Rose Elliot’s Christmas galette. In more recent years I’ve created my own recipes for Christmas. If you’re interested you can read more about how my Christmas meals have changed over the years on the Vegetarian Society’s website.
If you’re vegetarian and you still haven’t decided what to make for your Christmas dinner why not try one of these delicious vegetarian Christmas recipes. They’d all be perfect as the centrepiece for any festive feast.
Roast Stuffed Seitan Roulade
I’ve only recently heard about seitan. If you’re like me and are currently wondering what on earth seitan is then it’s a product derived from wheat gluten that is chewy and high in protein. It is said to make an excellent meat substitute. This recipe from Yumsome looks perfectly festive and is a great choice for vegans. Get the recipe.
Cranberry, Feta and Quinoa Stuffed Butternut Squash
I’ve never had feta cheese as part of a Christmas main but this recipe from Easy Peasy Foodie looks so utterly tempting that I just have to give it a try! Get the recipe.
