These Are The Top 9 Vegan Christmas Recipes, According to Pinterest
Posted on November 20 2018
You better believe we’re making a spiced date and caramel pudding this year!
Christmas is fast approaching, which can only mean one thing: spending hours upon hours down the Pinterest rabbit hole. Now, don’t get us wrong, we love a good Pinterest binge (it’s like therapy, no?). The only problem is there are SO many vegan Christmas recipes that you can end up feeling overwhelmed.
That’s why we’ve made it our mission to find the most-pinned recipes for you. AKA the vegan dishes with a certain je ne sais quoi, shall we say? These are the top 9 recipes that are trending this festive season and we gotta say they ALL look amazing!
1. Spiced Date & Caramel Vegan Self Saucing Pudding
Who doesn’t love warm, ooey-gooey, fudgy pudding at Christmas? It’s the ultimate comfort food. This vegan spiced date and caramel pudding recipe from Gather & Feast is self-saucing (we love a good time-saver!) and contains no refined sugar; just sticky, sweet dates, maple syrup and coconut sugar. The base recipe calls for spelt flour, coconut milk, coconut oil and other delicious ingredients like cinnamon and vanilla. Serve it with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and your favourite Christmas beverage. We think it would pair nicely with an Alchemy Turmeric Elixir!
You know those vegan Christmas dishes that look *seriously* impressive, but are actually deceptively easy to make? Yeah, this is one of those. This vegan mushroom wellington by Delicious Everyday uses caramelised onions and wilted spinach. But the secret to the deliciously juicy, yet flaky pastry dish? Portobello mushrooms! You sauté the tender morsels until golden and then roll them in puff pastry. Mmm-mmm!
Gingerbread is one of those traditional Christmas desserts (read: sometimes sneaky breakfast snacks—we don’t judge!) that everyone loves. But while it can be fun to decorate gingerbread men and recreate your own Hansel & Gretel candy house, they take FOREVER to make. All those buttons and sprinkles are a nightmare to clean up. Luckily, this amazing raw vegan gingerbread cake from Tuulia uses the same mouth-watering spice blend (ceylon, cinnamon, ground cardamom, ginger and clove), but is super easy to make. So easy, you don’t even need an oven. Cheers to that!
Everyone knows a roast is a classic Christmas dish, but what do you bring to the table when you’re a vegan? Introducing Jamie Oliver’s whole roasted cauliflower! With ingredients like garlic, smoked paprika, fresh thyme, dry sherry and plum tomatoes, it’s the perfect alternative to your typical roast chicken or beef recipe. Pair with a fancy bottle of wine and Michael Bublé’s Christmas album to prove to your family that you’re *totally* a sophisticated hostess now.
5. Lemon & Elderflower Cake with Chai Spice Biscuits
A two-tier lemon and elderflower sponge cake with lemon frosting andadorable chai spiced animal biscuits? Umm yes, please! This popular Pinterest recipe from Cupful of Kaleis one of those showstopper vegan Christmas recipes that you whip out once a year when you want to impress your friends and family. It’s a little bit #extra, but oh-so-worth it! The combination of citrus, floral and chai flavours are simply irresistible.
This wouldn’t be a Christmas recipe list without some sort of creamy potato dish. This vegan Au Gratin version from Neurotic Mommy is so thick and ‘cheesy’ you would never know it’s not the ‘the real thing’. *Drools*. Pop a saucière with homemade Gluten-free Food Co. gravy on the table with steamed greens and your creamy potatoes, and your special guests will jump up for seconds for sure!
7. Maple Roasted Carrots with Tahini Sauce, Pomegranates & Pistachios
It’s no surprise this Christmas carrot dish by Closet Cooking is trending on Pinterest. Maple syrup makes everything 10 x better! Throw in some juicy red pomegranates, creamy tahini and pistachios for a wonderfully crunchy texture, and you’ve got one truly amazing vegan side dish that’s perfect for Christmas dinner.
Stuffed dishes are all the rage on Pinterest this year and most of them are meat-based. But not this one! These vegan lentil and walnut stuffed sweet potatoes from Savory Nothings are the answer to your holiday prayers. They only take 15 minutes to prep and they definitely take your average mashed potato up a notch. Think crispy skin, soft interior. Oh, yes!
We’re all about moist vegan chocolate cake at Nutrient Avenue, especially when it’s gluten-free, nut-free and covered in dreamy choc-orange frosting. This indulgent four-layered Christmas cake recipe from Nirvana Cakery is what festive dreams are made of. It not only looks heavenly, but it’s also made with some pretty wholesome ingredients too, like apple cider vinegar, flax seed and raw cacao. Decorate with fresh fruit for a pop of vibrant colour!
