VEGAN EATS: FESTIVE SEASON COOKING

PART OF THE JOY OF THE FESTIVE SEASON IS SHARING FOOD WITH LOVED ONES, AND FOR US, IT'S ALWAYS GOING TO BE CRUELTY FREE. HERE'S SOME MOUTH WATERING VEGAN RECIPES FOR YOUR NEXT FESTIVE FUNCTION.

As we get closer to the end of the year, calendars are filling up with Christmas parties, work lunches + family get togethers. We're feeling so lucky this year that socialising with loved ones is well + truly back on the agenda, and looking forward to sharing some plant based treats. We know there's a belief that 'vegan food' can be expensive and/or tasteless. We're here to myth bust on both fronts, with tasty solutions to your festive table this year.   

There's sweet, creamy, salty + spicy flavour aplenty in plant based foods - here's some ideas for vegan festive food to make, take + share.

BRING A PLATE

Whether it's a morning tea at work or holiday drinks with the neighbours, when you're asked to 'bring a plate' you want food that will travel well + satisfy a diverse range of tastes. Here's some ideas for what to bring:

Vegan Rice Paper Rolls by Vegan Heaven

RICE PAPER ROLLS by Vegan Heaven

Full of colour + interesting textures, these vegan rice paper rolls can be made purely veggie or you can add fried tofu, and the recipe includes a delicious peanut sauce.

Vegan Strawberry Muffins - The Simple Veganista

STRAWBERRY MUFFINS by The Simple Veganista

Using fresh or frozen strawberries, these vegan muffins are an easy contribution to a morning or afternoon tea, and there's oil and gluten-free options too.

Vegan Walnut Pate from Exceedingly Vegan

WALNUT PATE by Exceedingly Vegan

This super simple recipe has got the best response of any vegan food we've ever taken to a party - it's a winner every time.

Vegan Sausage Rolls - That Vegan Dad

SAUSAGE ROLLS by That Vegan Dad

Another favourite with traditional meat lovers, these 'sausage' rolls are made with rolled oats + almond feta.

 

VEGAN DUPES FOR A TRADITIONAL FESTIVE FEAST

Experiment with vegan substitutes that retain the flavour + texture of traditional festive favourites - when done well, you'll lose nothing bar the cruelty + cholesterol.

Beet Wellington - Lazy Cat Kitchen

BEET WELLINGTON by Lazy Cat Kitchen

We've tried a vegan wellington before, but this year we're adding this smoky beetroot version to our menu. 

Vegan Roast 'Lamb' - Vegan Food + Living

VEGAN ROAST 'LAMB' by Vegan Food + Living

Seitan is used to make this traditional Greek 'Kleftiko' - marinated roast lamb - completely vegan. A great choice for Christmas lunch.  John, our Operations Manager, makes homemade seitan - it's a process, but totally worth it.   

Vegan Fig + Custard Tart - Taste

VEGAN FIG + CUSTARD TART by Taste

A showstopper dessert, with custard made from almond + coconut milk and topped with gorgeous figs and maple syrup rather than honey.

Vegan Shrimp - Olives for Dinner

VEGAN SHRIMP by Olives for Dinner

Instead of the Australian tradition of seafood at Christmas (the oceans are devastatingly over fished, let's make a Xmas miracle by giving our underwater friends a break), try using King oyster mushrooms to make these vegan shrimp, complete with a spicy sauce that's packed with flavour.

MOUTH WATERING VEGAN BBQ IDEAS

Summer BBQs are on the cards this festive season, and there's more than just boring salads on offer for those who choose plant based. There's an increasing number of meat alternatives easily available in supermarkets - like Fable, Beyond + Impossible Foods - or you can make you're own vegan BBQ delights.

Barbecued Tofu - Taste

BARBECUED TOFU by Taste

Marinate extra firm tofu overnight in a sweet + spicy sauce + you have a delicious vegan Korean BBQ alternative.

Portobello Burgers - Marathons + Motivation

Vegan Cauliflower Buffalo Wings - Nutriciously

VEGAN CAULIFLOWER BUFFALO WINGS by Nutriciously

These delicious morsels are a great dupe for chicken wings + with a crunchy coating and spicy buffalo sauce.

Grilled Tofu + Veg Kebabs - Vanilla + Bean

GRILLED TOFU + VEGIE BBQ KEBABS by Vanilla + Bean

Slather these kebabs in homemade BBQ sauce both before and during grilling + enjoy the hit of smokey flavour.
