Very simple and fuss-free ingredients (not to mention low-cost too), and not too many kitchen skills. That is what you’ll need to make this (other) version of one of the vegan roasted staples, The Mighty Cauliflower.

This easy sauce makes everything super succulent.

Love how they leave some of the leaves on.

Vegan Christmas Dinner Cashew-and-Chestnut-Roast3

12πŸŽ…Chestnut and Cashew Nut Roast by Thinly Spread

They got won me with the chestnuts and when reading the ingredients further and finding butternut squash in there too, I was sold.

I am all about contrasting textures and flavors. And I think this fairly simple vegan Christmas dinner recipe can achieve a lot of that.

Extra points for the different format.

Harvest food sorted!

14πŸŽ…Best Vegan Lasagna by Cookie and Kate

I think lasagna is special. I mean, it is not every day you make one from scratch with everything it deserves.

It is also the kind of food that rank high on people’s cheat days.

Well, sounds perfect for a vegan Christmas dinner to me.

And this recipe seems a show stopper.


I am positive you are inspired by now.

However, if you are not ready to commit to a main course just yet, you can start with our list of Christmas Appetizers or even our 23 Vegan Christmas Cookies.

And don’t worry, you don’t have to choose only one.
