  • Vegetarian Christmas dinner

Make the most of the season’s fabulous winter ingredients such as squash, chestnuts, Jerusalem artichokes and parsnips to create these vegetarian Christmas mains, starters and sides. How about a goat’s cheese, squash and mushroom pithivier? Or Marcus Wareing’s roasted onion tarte tatin? You could consider these recipes if you’re simply not a lover of turkey, too.

Let us do (some!) of the hard work for you with our carefully curated vegetarian Christmas menu.

Want to add some WOW to your standard vegetarian sides? Our Glow Up mini recipes are here for you. Try candied pecans, flavoured with rosemary and juniper, scattered over braised red cabbage or add pep to your peas and broccoli with our hazelnut, orange and chilli oil.
