Now more than ever, Christmas is the season to be thankful for everything we have in our lives. Even in these strange times, food has the unique ability to bring people together and Christmas Day 2020 will be no exception to that.
Tables filled with mouth-watering mains, snacks and treats have become synonymous with the festive period, and the key to a stress-free day lies in the preparation.
To help you plan this year’s spread, we’ve created a comprehensive guide of the best vegan Christmas recipes, from starters and sides all the way through to mains and desserts. And once the plates are empty, you’re free to reach for the stretchy pants and TV remote for a well-earned rest. Bliss.
