It’s almost Christmas time!! One of our favourite times of the year. Time for advent calendars, mince pies, and lots and lots of Christmas food. The best opportunity to feast with family and friends and try out new recipes and food products.
It’s really come around quickly this year. I’m not complaining though because I love Christmas and of course all the festive food! It is the season for over-indulging and eating all the foods you love.
If you are hosting Christmas lunch or dinner this year and require meat-free and plant-based goods then you have come to the right place. LiberEat has gathered all the best homemade and shop-bought options to make the best Vegan Christmas roast dinner ever!
M&S Vegan Christmas
First of all, we have to discuss the M&S Vegan and Vegetarian Christmas Range! They have pulled out all of the vegan stops from vegan “beef” wellington to vegan butternut, almond, and pecan nut roast pie.
Before we get ahead of ourselves let’s start from the beginning of our ultimate vegan Christmas guide:
Vegan Christmas Starters
M&S Vegan Duck Croquettes
This plant-based starter is made with shredded soya that’s utterly delicious, with balsamic onions and breadcrumbs. With a cherry hoisin sauce for dipping. How amazing does that sound, plus all you need to do is pop in the oven.
Warming Winter Sweet Potato Soup by Michaella Mazzoni
Is there anything more comforting than soup on Christmas day? Soup is economic, easy and perfect to serve to the whole party. This recipe consists of vegetables and spices so it really is the perfect Christmas starter.

M&S Vegan Beef Wellington
M&S has on offer a slightly less traditional Christmas dinner. Tender, wheat, and pea-based vegan Wellington topped with a rich mushroom duxelle and wrapped in crisp puff pastry. Cook in the oven and it’s good to serve. Certain to impress.

Meat-Free Christmas Sides and Sauces
Luckily most of our favourite Christmas trimmings are veggies such as brussel sprouts, parsnips, and carrots, although animal-derived fats such as honey or goose-fat are commonly used to cook or season. We opt to use olive oil, vegan butter, or avocado oil on our veggies to avoid any animal products. Herbs and spices are a great substitute to leave your veggies and roast potatoes delicious.
Instead of stuffing, opt for an easy vegan stuffing recipe: https://minimalistbaker.com/simple-vegan-stuffing/
As for sauces, Bisto has a vegan gravy option or cranberry sauce is also a classic Christmas condiment.
