Eating a vegan diet doesn’t mean you have to miss out on your favourite seasonal sweet and savoury dishes, so we’ve rounded up our pick of the most scrumptious vegan festive fare to show you the light. From gingerbread men, mince pies and chocolate yule logs to shepherds pie and Brussels sprouts, you’re sure to find the perfect treat to indulge in!
Chilli Jam: Although I call this chilli jam, I don't mean by this that it's the sort of thing you'd spread on your toast at breakfast (though smeared inside a bacon sandwich, it could be a real help one hungover morning) but rather a chilli jelly - chelly? - that glows a fiery, flecked red and is fabulous with cold meats or a cheese plate. And just a small pot of it makes a gorgeous present.
PERFECT ROAST POTATOES Needs must and all that, so I have always been an open anti-perfectionist, but in truth (and I’m sorry to repeat what I’ve said before) it is impossible to cook roast potatoes without needing them to be perfect, which to me means sweet and soft inside and a golden-brown carapace of crunch without.
