Vegan Christmas FAQ








What are the best vegan Christmas recipes?

Vegans can choose to eat meat and dairy-free versions of traditional Christmas dinners like roasts, casseroles, potatoes, and roasted vegetables. Try veganizing your family’s Christmas recipes using plant-based ingredients in place of meat, dairy, and eggs.

What is a vegan alternative to turkey for Christmas dinner?

For vegans looking for a traditional main dish centerpiece for Christmas, homemade seitan or roast, vegan Wellington, or a store-bought vegan roast (like Tofurky) are great alternatives to turkey. For a more vegetable-forward dish, try a veggie casserole, lentil loaf, or whole-roasted cauliflower.

Why are there 12 meatless dishes on Christmas Eve?

Serving 12 meatless dishes on Christmas Eve is a Ukrainian tradition to symbolize the 12 Apostles. Families fast during the day, then after sundown partake in small portions of each of the 12 dishes like borscht, cabbage buns, mushrooms, gravy, and pudding.

What do vegans eat during the holidays?

Not many traditional Christmas dishes and desserts are vegan, but vegans can enjoy meat, dairy, and egg-free versions of these dishes made with vegan recipes, order ready-made meals from vegan restaurants, or purchase store-bought treats like Christmas cookies and chocolates.

What are good vegan Christmas side dishes?

Some good vegan Christmas side dishes include mashed potatoes made with plant milk and vegan butter, roasted winter vegetables like squash and onions, and vegan versions of your favorite family recipes. Christmas dishes vary by location and cultural background too.
