I do lasagna, too. My sister always makes it on Christmas so now that I moved so far away, I like to try to keep that tradition going.

I'm not sure, I'll be having traditional christmas lunch (roast potatos, mashed sweede, sprouts and other veg, gravy, etc) with something vegan to go with it while the meat eaters eat meat with theirs - my nan cooks the dinner and my mum'll bring soemthing vegetarian for her, my dad and myself so I don't really know. Last year I had nut roast, the year before vegan sausages, the year before a wild rice and mushroom thingy.


I've made my own christmas cake, and my mum will find some vegan christmas pudding too....yuuuum!

Thanks for the ideas, guys.. I am going to look through my recipe books until I find something suitable. I am not sure what to do, also because it will be summer, so I am wondering if I should get away from the usual wintery foods...

Glad someone else does lasagna. It is my favourite food so that is why it is an option at christmas.

Nut roast is an interesting idea, as is pie or enchiladas....

First christmas day I am cooking, second day we're going out for a buffet. So far I've decided to make all kinds of treats, not a meal but a kind of small buffet. So far I've thought of:

-Fresh artisan bread
-Mixed veggies with dip
-Fake meatballs with spicy peanut sauce dip
-Pasta salad
-Plate with different cheeses
-Onion soup
-Spreads like olive tapenade, red pesto, tzatziki and hummus
-Samosa's with curry dip
-Spicy potato wedges with aioli

-Cheesecake
-Chocolate cake

We make homemade pizza on Christmas Eve. It's been our tradition for years now also.

My boyfriend's mother is doing a couple of Quorn roasts with all the usual trimmings.

..I'm tempted to bring down a butternut squash to roast, but I don't want to offend >.>; I mean it's nice, but I really wouldn't mind a nut roast rather than Quorn. Ahh well, it's a big family so I guess whatever's easiest for her is what's important. :3

My grandmother is from Poland. Every year of my life, on Christmas Eve, we celebrate Wigila, a Polish Christmas feast that is *almost* meatless. The only meat served in fish. The rest of the dishes are authentic Polish foods like pierogies (potato dumplings), glumpkie (stuffed cabbage rolls) and kasha (buckwheat). Next to my own veg*n Thanksgiving feast, it's my favorite holiday meal, because I don't need to be so ingredient conscious.
