It’s that time of year when the cooks among us start thinking about what food we are going to serve up at Christmas.
During my last few years working for Viva!, before leaving to have my son in June, I had the honour of helping to produce hundreds of unique vegetarian recipes, including many wonderful ones for the festive season.
A couple of years ago, my friend Jane Easton and I put together a new Mini Guide to a Veggie Christmas – which includes our most popular Christmas dishes, such as Chestnut Strudel, Luxury Nut Roast, Mini Yorkshire Puddings and my favourite Not Cheese and Cranberry Parcels.
Viva!’s Vegetarian Recipe Club, features all these recipes, plus many more to spoil your guests on Christmas Day. These include; Christmas Brandy Truffles, Golden Stuffed Squash and Veggie Pigs in sun-dried Tomato Blankets.
So this week I had the pleasure of writing and photographing three new recipes for the 2012 season. Visit the website for the recipes.
- Miniature Creamed Pea and Tarragon Pithiviers
- Individual Mediterranean Nut, Olive & Marinated Tofu Roasts with Caramelised Red Onion & Wine Reduction
- Luxury Lemon Vegan Meringue Pie with Raspberry Coulis
All our recipes are vegan.
There are many reasons to think about not eating meat this Christmas – read all about Viva!’s campaign to save Turkeys.
