Vegetarian Christmas Recipes

Christmas is to me filled with many different memories. I especially cherish the memories from when I was little and celebrated Christmas at my grandparents’ house in Sweden.

All the family was there, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. My grandmother would cook all the traditional Swedish Christmas dishes, a whole buffet with beautiful, traditional, homemade dishes.

Vegetarian Christmas recipes

We kids would run around and drive everyone crazy, until Santa came to knock on the door with Christmas gifts in a big sack to all the very, very nice kids..!

Since then I have experienced many different Christmases. After becoming Vegetarian I was for many years trying to imitate the food of the traditional Swedish Christmas, until I realized that trying to imitate meat is never a great idea.

I started asking myself instead what I really missed from the Holiday cooking. I found that it was the aromas. I missed the spices, the salads and desserts. Not the meat!

Even though I am living in Greece for many years, I still try to keep some of the Swedish Christmas traditions. So I have kept my favorite vegetarian Christmas recipes from my past, with a mix of other vegetarian recipes that taste great.

This menu is made from my collection of my favorite vegetarian Christmas recipes that everyone likes, all are vegetarian or vegan. May your holiday be merry and bright and your kitchen filled with pleasant aromas and love!

This is a tasty and colorful vegan nut roast with eggplant, tomatoes, cashews and pine nuts, which you can prepare in advance. It lasts for a week in the fridge, and tastes better each day! Just warm it up before serving. Vegetarian Roast

Vegetarian Gravy

The vegetarian roast goes beautifully together with this super tasty gravy. Here is an easy gravy recipe that is actually vegan, and soo delicious! You can double the recipe and freeze any leftovers. (If there are any…) Vegetarian Gravy

Spicy Cooked Red Cabbage

This is one of the vegan recipes I can’t ever do without at the Holidays. This is a typical Swedish and Danish Christmas dish. You can freeze any leftovers.

Homemade Ginger Ale

Here is a tasty drink that is also healthy and helps with anything from nausea, digestion and a runny nose. To me it is a Christmas drink. Serve on the rocks with sparkling soda water for an elegant nonalcoholic drink with “sting”! Homemade Ginger Ale

Vegan Cake For The Holidays

This is a Vegan cake recipe  that is a real winner. Surprisingly easy to make, it always turns out beautiful. The aromas that fill your kitchen; cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, raisins... Now that’s Christmas! This is a cake that is great for a holiday gift as well. It lasts for at least 4-5 days, stays juicy and tasty because of the raisins, it is both elegant and comforting.
