The ultimate vegetarian Christmas dinner

The ultimate vegetarian Christmas dinner - with lots of options for the main event, potatoes, veggies, stuffing, and more!

Christmas is nearly upon us! Last year, you seemed to really enjoy my collection of 50 vegetarian Christmas dinner recipes, so I thought I’d put together another collection for you, to make sure that your vegetarian Christmas dinner is just as satisfying as the meaty version could ever be!

Last year I focused on the main focus of the meal, but this year I thought I’d let the side dishes have their chance to shine too, and I’ve put together my ultimate vegetarian Christmas dinner, with a bit of help from some of my favourite bloggers.

Enjoy, I hope you find something to inspire you!
