16 Vegan Christmas Recipes

Fa la la la la la la la la la!!!! (Picture me belting this out in my kitchen) You know what time of year it is… it’s the holiday season! I love this time of year because it revolves around food, family and friends. However, making your holiday dinners vegan can be challenging when everyone thinks of holiday food as turkey, turkey, and more turkey. What I did was went through and compiled my 16 favourite vegan Christmas recipes to help make holiday meal planning way easier for you this year.
