126 Vegan Christmas Recipes

Vegan cupcakes for one of our 126 Vegan Christmas Recipe ideas

It’s here, it’s here! Christmas week is upon us – my absolute favorite week of the year (besides my birthday, obvs).

When it comes to food holidays, Christmas ranks at the top for me, so it’s no surprise I wanted to go all out and share all of the plant-based recipes we have on the blog that would be perfect for your holiday gatherings.

This round-up reaches back to the early days of Minimalist Baker (aaahhh), right up to the present, and includes recipes for breakfast, sides, appetizers, entrées, desserts, and drinks. We’ve got you covered. Let’s dig in, friends!

    Thanks so much for this list. They look AMAZING! I wish we could click on the pictures, or have the name by the pictures to click. I keep having to go back and forth to try and match up the picture with the recipe link.

  2. Felicia Raiti-Motherway says

    I love your site. Bought your cookbook for my vegan daughter. The carrot cake is so yum that I brought it to a group of meat eating donut men and they adored it. Happy Holidays and keep making great recipes!

  3. Luna says

    What an incredible number of plant-based recipes for the holidays. Maybe you should have a Christmas book with all of them. The holidays are the hardest for me to plan for because most of the guests want traditional food and I want them all to have healthy, delicious plant-based food.

  4. Debbie says

    Are all of these recipes available in one cookbook that can be purchased? I’ve already printed out about 25 recipes, but would love to find all of them in one cookbook.

  5. Irish says

    I am so grateful that I came across this site. I am spearheading my families transition to a more plant-based diet. Your recipes are not intimidating nor costly; of which, has been my issue of proceeding down the path of healthier eating. Thanks so much!

  6. joe says

    I am confused what to choose. My head is spinning … all those goodies. Any favorites to start the ball rolling? Tks
    God bless.

    I am big fan of vegan recipes.  I love deserts so much. Chocolate pad is my favorite desert in sweet dishes.  Last weekend, I cook chocolate pad and it was very yum I cannot forget the taste.
