So this Christmas was my very first Christmas as a vegan. I was really struggling to figure out what I could make. Last year I was vegetarian so I had a few more options as to what I could have. So I trolled the internet for a few ideas and here is what I decided to make
Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love to eat. And as I spent a lot of time in the kitchen with my Mom growing up, I picked up a fair few culinary skills. Everything I have learnt has come in handy for when I want to get my munch on. Being of Caribbean descent, we never really measure things. We just throw things in and taste as we go along and I am no exception to the rule. This is pretty much what I do every time I cook. But I have compiled a list of my Christmas Day recipes here
The first dish on my Christmas menu is this macaroni cheese. I used to love macaroni cheese before I was vegan and I was worried that it wouldn't be the same. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was in fact tastier and creamier than before
Next up we have these stuffed Portobello mushrooms. These are delicious and pretty simple to make
Next on the menu is this delicious roasted butternut squash. And this sage and onion bulgur wheat stuffing is on point (even if I say so myself).
Now I know that this isn't a traditional Christmas Day dinner. But being from Grenada - The Isle Of Spice I needed to spice up my life with this buffalo cauliflower. Smothered in chilli hot sauce and vegan bleu cheese sauce, I just couldn't stop shoveling it down my throat.
Obviously a roast dinner would be incomplete without roast potatoes. This meal went down nicely with some lovely vegan gravy. If you'd like to recreate these little beauties or any of my other Christmas Day dishes check them out here
Thanks for reading and happy cooking (and of course eating)
