My picks for a vegetarian Christmas

Ah Christmas, the time of year where we gather and eat, and eat, and eat, and eat. It’s glorious! But, I am not nor have I ever been a turkey fan, and pork is out of the question. As a family we don’t eat meat with the exception of some fish and we have also recently decided to go dairy free (with the exception of a cheesy treat here and there – still looking for a great nut cheese). I know, what a great time of year to have a relatively limiting diet but, I have learned a few awesome recipes that work well for the vegetarians this time of year!

My extended family is all meat eaters so, I typically bring a vegetarian main dish for my family. This year I am going to bring Eating Bird Food’s Lentil Loaf – I will cook them in muffin tins and add a mushroom gravy to suit our tastes! This meal will be paired with whatever salads and vegetables appear at Christmas dinner! Typically I would do a roast vegetable.

Also, as an appie, I will be making this sweet pea hemp dip by Joyous Health!

For brunch on Christmas morning – we will be doing these  pancakes by Minimalist Baker, much to the dismay of my younger brother. They are so delicious he won’t be able to refuse with some fruit and maybe peanut butter and maple syrup – seriously so delicious! Of course, we can’t forget the mimosas!
