51 Vegan Christmas Dinner Recipes - Six Hungry Feet (1)

Why we think you will love this list

  • We gathered unique recipes for this roundup. All these Vegan Christmas Dinner recipes are festive, made especially for Christmas Day. We haven't included recipes that you can make every day. If you found this list, you are surely looking for a special menu that we wanted to help create.
  • You can find some recipes from our own blog, and from other blogs we trust and we know. We are confident that you can find fantastic vegan Christmas dinner ideas here.
  • This post includes classic Christmas recipes with a vegan spin such as roasts, pies, casseroles, salads, Christmas cakes, and cookies.
  • Because we have been there, Christmas after Christmas trying to create a delicious menu for a crowd that includes meat eaters. We have the pressure to cook something delicious to show people how you don't need meat!
  • Also, if you are here because you have some vegan or vegetarian guests and you need some inspiration, this list can help you develop the perfect festive menu for them.

Vegan Essential Ingredients for Christmas:

There are a few ingredients that will help you make your Vegan Christmas Dinner Recipes menu if you have them at home. These are essential ingredients that we normally buy for this festive season if we don't have them already:

  • Dried mushrooms. Dried mushrooms such as porcini, shiitake, or wild mushrooms will help when flavoring your dishes. You can soak them in water and create a rich stock, or add them to your dishes.
  • Spices. Nutmeg, cloves, rosemary, sage, cinnamon, black pepper, or cumin are popular spices to use in your Christmas dishes. Make sure you have your spice rack ready for the season!
  • Vegan cream. If you like creamy dishes or desserts, you will need to have some vegan cream ready to use or make your own. You can use coconut milk, cashew cream, oat cream, or soy cream. You can buy them already made or you can make your own.
  • Fresh root vegetables. Root veggies such as beetroots, potatoes, turnips, and carrots are really popular as side dishes or as ingredients for your main plant-based Christmas recipes.
  • Vegan pastry. You can make dishes such as pies, wellington, tarts, or different appetizers with pastry. You can find vegan pastry in most supermarkets.
  • Ingredients to flavor the dishes. There are some ingredients that will help you enhance the flavor of your dishes such as vegetable stock cubes, tomato paste, yeast flakes, mushroom powder, vegan butter, marmite, soy sauce, maple syrup, etc.
