Christmas means something to each one of us. For some, Christmas means family, for some it means food, for some it means a time to rest, for some it doesn’t mean anything and for some others, it means a lot. For me, it’s a mix of stuff, but mostly close ones and food. Especially food. I think it is a blessing to be able to enjoy these holidays and eat a lot of great food, so I am really glad for that. Over the past few weeks I have been working on the ultimate vegetarian Christmas Menu and two days before Christmas, I can officially wrap it up with an appetizer, starter, main dish and dessert vegetarian Christmas menu.
Vegetarian Christmas Menu: Appetizers & Starters
To begin your dinner, you can start with some nice appetizers. Some easy ideas that will most likely please everyone: bruschettas, artichoke dip, beetroot hummus, chips, arancinnis, etc.
The starter is a bit tricky, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be good. Salads are a great option, you can also serve some bigger bruschettas or mini tarts, or even some veggie rolls.
Vegetarian Christmas Menu: Main dish
This is the big part. It needs to be great. It needs to catch everyone’s attention because that is what they will remember. When people ask “What did you have for Christmas”, this is what they are going to answer. So you got to make sure it is tasty.
There are many options for vegetarians out there, from very basic to very complex recipes. You can go as easy (yet amazing) as a veggie lasagna, or “meat”loaf. You can go more complex and do a tofurkey. Or you can go middle ground and discover the Veggie Wellington.
I prepared a veggie wellington with a side of green beans and white onion gravy for my main dish option.
Vegetarian Christmas Menu: Dessert
I am not a huge fan of desserts and even less Christmas desserts. Sugar isn’t really my thing. Therefore, I asked myself the question of what I would like to have: what do I like? and within that list, what are good Christmas options? Parfaits were the answer.
My trio of fruit parfaits falls into the very simple category. They are all under 10 minutes preparation and they taste amazing. If you want to go with something more complex, try a chocolate yule log.
Don’t forget to enjoy your holidays. Don’t focus on the negative, focus on having fun and enjoying it your own way!
