Make Our 5 Favorite Easy Holiday Recipes This Season!
The holidays are upon us and we wanted to share our favorite recipes to make this time of year! Our holiday recipes are not like most recipes you see at the holiday table, because they are whole food plant-based and salt, oil, and sugar free. You can indulge with these recipes and still feel amazing and not weighed down!
We are our top 5 holiday recipes with some bonus recipes, of course! These recipes are perfect for everyone, plant based or not. You need to try these recipes this holiday season and year round, because they are that good. Keep scrolling to learn more about each recipe!
Enjoy the holiday dishes below and more in our Holiday Classics cookbook!
#1 - Delicious Cup of Cheer
Most traditional holiday beverages like hot cocoa and eggnog are full of unhealthy ingredients and loaded with processed sugar. Luckily, these holiday beverage recipes taste delicious and are good for you! From Wassail to Hot Cocoa to Eggnot…we have you covered!
#2 - No-Turkey Salad
Nothing says the holidays more than the nostalgic flavors you had growing up in one amazing dish. This No-Turkey Salad is similar to our famous Chickpea Salad, but with seasonal flavors and bites of dried cranberries. Not to mention, this salad is amazing on its own, but is perfect for making a classic No-Turkey Salad sandwich!
#3 - Christmas Chestnut Loaf
Our Christmas Chestnut Loaf is so easy to prepare and full of flavor! Did you know that chestnuts are mostly starch? Other tree nuts are high in fat but the chestnut is super starchy, which is good news for those of us keeping close tabs on our fat intake. Plus this recipe can be made the night before to save you time in the kitchen later.
#4 - Jingle Balls
These healthy and delicious Jingle Balls are tender and perfect and delicious for any holiday table. The variety of herbs in this recipe remind us of stuffing. It is especially amazing if you dip your Jingle Balls in Cranberry Relish from our Holiday Classics cookbook or a creamy sauce.
#5 - Whole Roasted Cauliflower
While we did make this recipe as Cauliflower Brains on YouTube, this Whole Roasted Cauliflower is a decadent recipe that makes a beautiful centerpiece (sans the skulls). The cauliflower is brushed with a tahini sauce that adds a richness and so much flavor. It is so easy to make this recipe too, you need to try it this holiday season!
BONUS - Smoky Cheeze Ball
You will be the talk of any gathering by bringing this nut-free Smoky Cheeze Ball. This cheeze ball is so creamy and easy to whip up using chickpeas and tofu. It is the perfect addition to your charcuterie board along with crackers, veggies, and fruit for dipping. Get creative and shape your cheeze ball into a wreath or christmas tree like someone recently did in our Facebook Community!
