Christmas and New Year meat free meal ideas

Here are some excellent meat free (and vegan) meal ideas for your Christmas and New Year’s lunch.


For starters you can start with a Dip Combo: Sweet Potato Hummus/Creamy Mint Avocado Dip by Ramona Debono. Everybody will love these dips and get the family in the mood for a scrumptious plant based meal.


Additionally you can start you meal with a nice soup. After all who doesn’t love a soup especially in winter. Check out Michaela Žáková’s Hearty autumn veggie soup. This nutrient rich soup will be a good start for a winter lunch.

Main Course

For a main course you can have some pasta. How about a dish of Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta by Ramona Debono. This is easy and quick to make and will be a winner.

As part of your main course you can prepare these Stuffed bell peppers made by Steffie Cassar Torregiani. A traditional favourite with a vegan touch.


If you want a warm hearty bake for a meal, you can try out my Mixed veg and mango chutney pie. It is a simple recipe that is totally filling.


You can also try out Alison Casha’s Vegan Parmigiana. Rich in colour and taste/ A certain sensation on the dinner table.
