A bumper collection of 50 delicious vegetarian Christmas dinner ideas, that can all be served alongside your favourite roast potatoes, vegetable side dishes, and gravy!
It can sometimes be a bit tricky to come up with a vegetarian Christmas dinner idea that’s (first and foremost) delicious, and that’s special enough for The Big Day. I often end up going for a ‘fake meat’ product, which I enjoy, but it’s not that exciting. If you feel like getting more creative on Christmas Day, here are 50 of my favourite vegetarian Christmas dinner ideas!
When I ask about vegetarian Christmases, I often hear people suggesting things like tomatoey pasta – which is delicious and all, but in my opinion, that’s not Christmas dinner. You can’t have roast potatoes and gravy alongside tomatoey pasta (though if you do, you’re kind of my hero). So I’ve made a special effort to make sure that all of the following recipes will go perfectly with the usual roast potatoes, vegetables and (copious amounts of) gravy – there’s no need to stick out like a sore thumb alongside the meat-eaters, and you can still have all the trimmings!
So here goes – let me know which of these vegetarian Christmas dinner recipes is your favourite and whether you’re planning on making any of them this year!
(by the way, I’ve marked on which recipes are explicitly vegan, but keep in mind that lots of the other ones could also be made vegan with just one or two really easy substitutions!)
