The holiday season is the time to celebrate, and let’s be honest, the main part of this festive season is the food and drink! We are all so used to and love our traditional turkey dinners or maybe a leg of ham accompanied by duck fat roast potatoes and nice meat gravy. But, with the rise of veganism and people opting for plant-based dishes, it may just be the year we put together a vegan Christmas menu that will tickle the taste buds of any plant-based foodie!

Maybe you have a vegan crew member onboard, or your guests have gone plant-based this year. To give you a helping hand, we have put together a list of inspirational vegan dishes you could incorporate into your traditional Christmas dinner this year.

Our Vegan Christmas Menu Suggestions:
