If you're looking for cruelty free Christmas food alternatives then you've come to the right place. Here's our guide to having a fantastic vegan Christmas.


Vegan Christmas Dinner

This post will cover the most important part of any Christmas celebration, which is of course is the food. There have been some exciting new releases in the festive food department this year, with most of them coming from Linda McCartney Foods. They have released some festive nibbles including vegan pork and apple sausage rolls, vegan cocktail sausages, vegan beef wellington bites and a vegan beef roast with red wine and shallot sauce. We have tried and tested most of these and have really enjoyed them all.

The vegan roast beef is perfect for Christmas day and at £3.50 is much better value than the Tofurky roast which although totally delicious, comes in at around £9.99 - £11.99!! Fry’s Family Foods also have a roast option that comes in at £4.99. It is a soy and quinoa country roast and is available at Holland and Barrett and Ocado. Vegideli have a celebration roast which also comes with vegan 'pigs in blankets' and gravy. It is available from Holland and Barrett and from Vbites foods and costs around £5.89.

Tesco have also released a new festive nut roast with a mulled wine and cranberry sauce. It's tasty and filling and again at only £3.50 is a great value Christmas or Boxing day lunch option.

Linda McCartney’s new vegan cocktail sausages are perfect for making vegan ‘pigs in blankets’. Just wrap your cocktail sausages in a vegan bacon substitute such as the Vegideli Cheatin’ Streaky Style or Maple Flavour Rashers available at Holland and Barrett, Ocado or on Vbites foods.

Vegan Sweet Treats and Mince Pies

We all love a chocolate selection tin to dip our hands into throughout Christmas and Boxing day, so why not create your own vegan version. Grab a festive tin or cookie jar, and fill it with your favourite individually wrapped vegan chocolates. Some of my favourites include Raspberry and Peppermint Ruffles, Elizabeth Shaw Dark Chocolate Mint Crisp (both available at B&M) and Tesco Finest Free From Fondants.

Christmas Vegan Snacks

If you are looking for something sweet to snack on during the festive period, Lidl have bought out a gingerbread popcorn which is delicious and costs only 99p.  Lidl also stock vegan friendly mince pies. Their Favorina mince pies won multiple awards last year and are only £1.59 for a box of 12. If you're not a fan of Christmas Pudding (like me), just warm a couple of these mince pies up in the microwave and top with a scoop of Swedish Glace Vanilla ice cream, and you’ve got yourself a tasty Christmas day dessert.

No one should feel like they are missing out at over the festive period, so I hope that this post has given you some inspiration to make your Christmas dinner the best ever.
