Our First Vegan Christmas
Our son and his fiancee are both vegan, so we had to do some searching to figure out recipes that would work for Christmas Eve dinner. We found one that was quite tasty, and even found a good dessert!
This is my plate, so I helped myself to butter, which I love melted in hot squash. Otherwise I ate a vegan Christmas Eve dinner and liked it a lot! It's a wild rice/brown rice/lentil & veggies "stew" which expanded so far and so fast that it became more of a casserole in our case. And with the squash I found it to be quite delicious.
For dessert we had vegan cupcakes with fruit on top. Yummy! They were impressed, and I was happy it all turned out successfully.
Christmas Day we're doing it over again with our daughter and her BF. They couldn't all make it here on the same day, unfortunately. So for Round #2 we're doing a more typical meal with a roast, but we'll serve the leftover vegan dish, too!
Merry Christmas to all!
