How to embrace an alternative Christmas this year

We’re still not quite sure what Christmas will look like this year, but it’s bound to be a little different. So we’re encouraging everyone to celebrate this break from tradition and go one step further by leaving the cruelty off the dinner table and embracing a vegan Christmas for all the family.

In the December issue of Vegan Food & Living, we’ve got plenty of delicious main dishes that will make you wonder why you ever chose turkey in the first place, from individual lentil Wellington crackers to mushroom tempeh nut-roast, and we’ve even got a turkey-less roast for those who can’t do without their meat alternative.

To finish off the Christmas Day feast in style, we’ve got plenty of delicious desserts, from Yule log and Gingerbread marmalade Christmas pudding, to pecan pie and vegan pavlova.

Once Christmas Day is over, we don’t believe the celebrations should end, so we also encourage you to start a new tradition on Boxing Day with our Boxing Day Curry Club recipes.

For small socially-distanced gatherings, we’ve got the perfect punch recipes and New Year’s Eve nibbles, and we make the most of the season’s favourite vegetable in our focus on Brussels sprouts.

Also this issue, we take a look at vitamin A – the essential vitamin that’s rarely given much attention, reveal the benefits of adopting rather than buying animal companions, and explore which hidden additives may be lurking in our food.

If that’s not enough, this issue also comes with your exclusive 2021 Vegan Food & Living Climate Change Calendar, brought to you in partnership with Ecotricity. As well as featuring some absolutely stunning photography, every month we’ll inspire you to make a small change to join the fight against Climate Change. We hope you love it as much as we do.
