Easy Vegan Christmas Recipes

The holiday season, with so much focus on meat and dairy, can be tough on vegans. And it can also be tricky for hosts trying to accommodate vegan friends and family at a big family dinner.

But it doesn't need to be! There are so many incredible vegan recipes that are perfect for Christmas dinner. And all of these recipes are so delicious that even non-vegans will enjoy eating them.

We've collected all of our favorite vegan holiday recipes from nut roasts, casseroles, mushrooms gravy, mashed potatoes, and creamy risotto to sweet vegan Christmas desserts.

Don't forget to share this recipe collection with your vegan friends. And make sure to leave a comment letting us know which is your favorite recipe!

What do vegans eat for Christmas?

Everything! Delicious roasts and fluffy mashed potatoes smothered in gravy with all the sweet potato and brussels sprouts sides. It's 100% possible to have a wonderfully traditional holiday feast made completely vegan.

Sometimes making a Christmas recipe vegan is as simple as swapping butter for oil or using maple syrup instead of honey. But often it's better to have a specific vegan recipe so you know that the results will be great.

If you're cooking for a crowd, try making most of the sides vegan – your meat-eating guests will never know the difference. Then include the option of a vegan main to round out the rest of your menu. It's an easy way to make everyone at your table happy!
