Traditional Holiday Dinner Recipes For Plant-Based Eaters
Written by: Joanne Beccarelli
The holidays are often a dilemma to newly converted plant-based eaters. This is especially true when you will be in mixed company where family traditions and food memories pull you towards your old ways. However, there are plenty of ways to step forward by remaking some of your favorites or embracing some new ideas that will fit nicely on any table, even tables where omnivores and plant-based eaters celebrate together.
Make any of these appetizers, main courses/sides and desserts this season; they are delicious and substantial enough to make plant-based an easy choice. Plus, they will work well with any other standards that others contribute to the meal.
