A healthy, summery, vibrant plant-based Christmas menu to impress.

Collage of recipes in my Vegan Christmas Menu

And here we are again, the end of another year, time to dust off the Christmas decorations, don the stretchy pants, eat and drink till merry!

I have for you here, a fresh and vibrant Christmas lunch or dinner menu to consider for your festivities I know it may seem weird, the thought of planning an entirely vegan Christmas but why not? If youre hosting you can make it a time to nourish and feed your family and guests, and educate them subtly on the benefits of eating more plants.

A vegan Christmas dinner is the single biggest way to reduce environmental impact on the big day, alongside minimising food waste.

Sweet Potato Bruschetta

These bruschetta look super festive with a little sprig of rosemary on top. You can make the sunflower seed pate and caramelised onions in advance.

Radical Roasted Beet Hummus

I chose this beet hummus for the outrageous colour. Simply serve with a platter of raw vegetable sticks cucumber, capsicum (bell peppers), carrots, celery.

These are both quite light, summery recipes if youre having a White Christmas you might love this Turkish Lentil Soup.

Christmas Salads

Vibrant green salad for a vegan Christmas menu

Asparagus Salad with Maple Mustard Dressing

A light, green salad is always welcomed with the heavier mains. Dress at the last minute to keep it looking fresh.

Kumara salad as part of a vegan Christmas menu

Kumara Salad with Orange Tahini Dressing

Kumara is New Zealand sweet potato this is a nice alternative to your typical tray of roasted potatoes.

Christmas Mains

Christmas pasta salad on the table

Mediterranean Inspired Healthy Pasta Salad

Flavour packed and a crowd pleaser for sure this pasta salad is best made on the day, because it uses gluten free red lentil penne whos only fault is that it can tend to dry out a little if its been in the fridge.

Large bowl of eggplant salad for Christmas dinner

French Lentil + Eggplant Salad

My absolute fave! Soft, juicy, garlicky, lemony eggplant goodness. Filling and protein packed nobodys going to miss the meat with this one. You can prep several components in advance to save time.

Shepherd's Pie served for a vegan Christmas dinner

Lentil Shepherds Pie

This vegan Shepherds Pie is a cosier option for my Northern hemisphere friends I love the richness and the flavour in this dish. Plus it looks rustic and comforting doesnt it?

Christmas Desserts

Healthy trifle for vegan Christmas dessert

Chocolate Berry Trifle

The trifle that meets all dietary requirements! Entirely gluten free and plant-based this is another I recommend making on the day. If fresh berries arent in season, then Im sure youll love Nanas traditional Christmas Fruitcake here (yes, also gluten free, vegan).

Plate filled with vegan Christmas cookies

Vegan Ginger Cookies

I tend to make mega cookies if you make these, make the cookies smaller so they go a long way. You may enjoy serving them with

After Dinner Digestive Tea

Tea for two to help digest Christmas dinner

CCF Tea Ayruvedic Digestive Soother

This digestive tea! So simple equal parts coriander seed, cumin seed, fennel seed. Let it steep well before serving. These three spices are all classed as herbal carminatives, which just means they help dispel intestinal gas and ease spasms. So needed after all that food.


And there you go, vegan Christmas menu set! Happy bellies all round.

Have a magical Christmas friends, hope some of these find their way to your table,
