- Roasted Acorn Squash You can go simple and roast it in half moons with all of the holiday spices you can muster (rosemary, sage…heck, even pumpkin pie spice). You can also try these avocado and quinoa stuffed acorn squashes from Love & Lemons. You can make the filling two days in advance and there is usually some leftover. Just because you’re a vegan doesn’t mean you can’t dance in the world of leftovers.
- Vegan Pot Pies The holidays are about eating things that you wouldn’t normally and they are also about incorporating pie crust into as many recipes as possible (and they’re also about love, okay, Charlie Brown?). Bring a tray full of these bad boys from The Mostly Vegan and chances are your relatives will push their turkey to the side.
- Vegan Tourtiere Christmas Eve for me used to always involve a Canadian meat pie. Now Christmas Eve usually involves nachos due to an epic holiday fail that has evolved into tradition. This vegan tourtiere might be the perfect dish to marry tradition with new principles (and looks like it might taste even better than the original).
- Mushroom Wellington Do you know what the holidays don’t need more of? Beef. The earthiness of mushrooms is crisscrossed with pastry in this recipe by Delightful Vegans, looking gorgeous if you can pull it off and tasting delicious even if you can’t. If it doesn’t turn out quite like the picture, slice in advance, letting everyone know you were trying to save room on the table. So considerate!
- Vegan Turkey Roll You don’t want to be the person who brings a block of tofu to your family. However, tofu does take on the flavour of what it's surrounding, and if it is surrounded by gluten free stuffing, well then that’s just awesome, isn’t it? This recipe by Cheftographer makes for a beautiful centerpiece. I think if I brought this I wouldn’t even be a little tempted to eat meat.
