Sarah of Ordinary Vegetarian made a splendid cranberry-orange tart with walnuts and a chocolate crust, and would like to share the recipe with you! Did you know Sarah has been vegan since the beginning of the year? It’s nearly her first veganniversary! Hooray!
San Franciscans Jenn and Heather spent Christmas in Barcelona this year! For lunch, they made garbanzo bean and chorizo tacos with fresh salsa and homemade tortillas—all of it from scratch! Felices fiestas to you two, too!
This was reader JL’s first vegan Christmas! On the plate you can see veggie “meat” loaf, smashed sweet potatoes, mushroom and apple dressing, and sauteed spinach. JL has recipes for all her dishes, as well as loads more photos, on her site, JL Goes Vegan! Check out that lightbox, it’s fantastic!
This is reader Damian’s seitan roast with cranberry and wild rice stuffing, which we’re told was “awesome”—it does look pretty great!
Janet Hudson of Vegan Feast (and Project Just Desserts!) spent a quiet Christmas with her husband and this great spread. From left: beetroot and kale; wasabi mashed potatoes; fried mushrooms; lavender Brussels sprouts with clementines; pumpkin pie tarts (behind the wine!); and Asian tempeh stuffing with cherries. Beautiful!
Reader Danielle reports that her seitan portobello stroganoff from Vegan with a Vengeance made the kitchen smell so “delicious when I was cooking [that] my 80-year-old grandma said, ‘I think I’d like to try some of that.’ Finally a victory at getting grandma try her first vegan food! and she liked it too!”
Congratulations, Danielle! That looks really tasty.
This is reader Izzy’s bean and wild rice loaf, which appears to have made a colorful—and delicious?—Christmas Eve dinner. If you’d like to make it, here’s the recipe!
