30 Healthy Vegan Holiday Recipes

30 Vegan Holiday Recipes

Just in time for the holiday season, I’ve put together my favourite 30 vegan holiday recipes! You’ll find breakfast ideas, appetizers, salads, main dishes, desserts, and drink ideas to make it easier for you to serve super delicious vegan food to family and friends. Or if you’re not the one cooking, send this post to the person that will be for some inspiration if they need it.

I chose to call this post “Vegan Holiday Recipes” as I wanted to make sure I wasn’t excluding people and groups that don’t celebrate Christmas. I always try and be as inclusive as possible and make it easier for others to enjoy whatever holiday they celebrate without feeling as though all they can find is content that is dedicated to Christmas.

Easy guide to vegan holiday recipes

I love all of these recipes, (yes, they are all my own ;)) and sometimes it’s nice to have a spot where you can quickly filter out dishes that are dedicated to showing off what veganism is all about. All of these recipes are easy to make and are sure to impress the people that you’re with!

Bring any of these vegan holiday recipes to your gathering and I’m sure you’ll impress others with the amazing food that vegans can eat. Be careful though, they might just dig into your food first! So be prepared with your plate first to make sure you get the vegan options that you’ve brought with you.

30 Vegan Holiday Recipes

Plenty of gluten-free healthy festive recipes

80% of the recipes in this post are also gluten-free. So for those of you with gluten sensitivities/allergies, there are plenty of options here for you as well. 

Not only are there gluten-free options, but many of them are also healthy. I know what you’re thinking, but you can indulge in a meal that feels naughty but that isn’t going to send you into a food coma that your body will take forever to recover from afterwards.  

If you try any (or all!) of these vegan holiday recipes, I would love to hear what you and the people that enjoyed the food with thought of them in the comments below. You can also follow us on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook and share what you made there!

Plant-Based Holiday Breakfast Recipes

These delicious vegan holiday breakfast options will cater to everyone, especially for the ones with a sweet tooth. All recipes are easy to make and will quickly become a weekly favourite in the household.

With crepes, pancakes, rice puddings, French toast and tofu scramble, what more could you need?

Easy Vegan Appetizer Ideas

Appetizers are a great way to set the mood of a holiday gathering. You can serve these before the main course or simply have them as finger foods for your guests to snack on.

With the options of two different dips, eggplant rolls, four varieties of bruschetta toppings and a nourishing soup, you'll be able to keep everyone coming back for more.

Fresh & Vibrant Vegan Salads 

Plant-based salads can really make or break the dining experience at a holiday gathering. When you have a choice of a few different salads, others can pick what they enjoy and have a little bit of everything. This is the best way to try new things.

They can be served on the side of any of the main dishes that I've shared with you below.

Healthy Vegan Main Dishes

A collection of show-stopping vegan main dishes that will make you proud to be a plant muncher. Healthy, delicious and full of flavour comfort dishes to share with loved ones.

A great variety of options to suit every palate, vegan or not.

Decadent Vegan Dessert Ideas

This is my favourite course to share with others. Plant-based sweets get a bad wrap and I think that you can make amazing desserts without eggs and dairy.

From small bite-sized options, and single-serve options, to full dishes that come piping hot out of the oven. If you love fruit, chocolate and anything in between, I've got you covered.

Festive Non-Alcoholic Plant-Based Drinks

Drinks are a great way to set the tone for the festivities and can be great to accompany desserts and appetizers.

All of these recipes are alcohol-free, but you can, of course, add whatever you wish to them to give it that kick if you're into it.
