All of us here at Vegan Life&Living are super-excited to start sharing all things festive; it’s a great time of year for vegan goodies. We are going to share some of our favourite festive recipes that will make your non-vegan friends envious.
First up, we are going to tackle Christmas dinner. The almighty roast. Now, don’t panic, this is something you have plenty of time to perfect before Christmas Day!
No.1 One Badman Nut Roast
No.2 The Only Roast Potato Recipe You’ll Ever Need
What better than a crispy, fluffy potato with flakes of coarse sea salt. Our mouths are watering just thinking about the next roast potato fix.
No.3 Vegan and Gluten Free Gravy
Start pouring the gravy.. and don’t stop.
There can never be enough gravy making it’s way around the dinner table, here is a great quick and easy gravy recipe to satisfy those gravy cravings this Christmas.
No.4 Caramelised Vegetables
Although, if you are pressed for time [Christmas is chaotic, we understand] then a simple knob of butter with crack black pepper and sea salt is a classic!
No.5 Cauliflower Cheese
The biggy; possibly the most crucial make or break roast component.. cauliflower cheese. Considered a little daunting to you new vegans, we are here to help with a no-fail cauliflower cheese recipe.
What’s For Dessert..
No.1 Mama’s Apple Crumble
Apple Crumble came about during WWII when rations left the people of Britain with an involuntary need for innovation and ultimate frugality.
It’s all about simplicity.. let’s be honest through, it’s really all about that crumble topping!
No.2 Mince Pies
It can’t be Christmas without those Mince Pies.. It’s really up to you how you play this:
Option One: Make it all from scratch – you’ll need around an hour and forty minutes.
Option Two: Make the pastry, buy the filling – Cut your time to under half.
Option Three: Buy them – we would recommend Lidl’s own.
No.3 Dark Chocolate Orange Mousse
Our luxurious, three-ingredient chocolate orange mousse is one very effective Christmas dessert. It really makes sense to have a fail-safe mousse recipe in your back-pocket for a rainy day.
It’s not Christmas without something to drink..
