Christmas is one season of the year where everybody is entitled to throw a feast. But if you’re a vegetarian, how are you supposed to do it? Which no-meat meals should you serve to make Christmas a certified binge eating event for you and your family? Here are great meal suggestions you can make during this merriest time of the year:
1. Vegetable pies
You can take out the meat in a pie if you choose to add in layers of spinach, squash, and barley into it – and in that order too. Just bake the pie as usual. Put some green spinach leaves and maybe a few thin slices of red bell pepper on top of your pie. Your vegetable pie in Christmas colors – what else is the perfect meal?
2. Baked Potatoes Stuffed in a Bell Pepper
Being a vegetarian means you can’t be a little more creative in serving your prized dishes. So instead of serving baked potatoes in a traditional way, use a large bell pepper for the cup. Boil, mash, and bake the potatoes to perfection. And oh, don’t forget grating some parmesan cheese on top.
3. Roasted Squash
Who says you can’t roast something for Christmas? Bring out a squash and scoop out all the seeds in the middle. Then put in some veggie goodies inside. Drained tomatoes, garlic, seasonings, and some herbs would be the best stuffing. Don’t forget to put in some cheese as well. Then grate a lot of it outside. This could just be your perfect Christmas centerpiece.
4. Apple and Almond Christmas Cake
There’s really no harm baking for Christmas. And since you have piled up on veggies on your main courses, you can reserve the fruits for dessert. Bake some Apple and Almond Christmas cake. It’s the perfect alternative to the proud fruit cake.
