New vegans and experienced vegan-foodies alike can enjoy these recipes which are delicious veganized versions of traditional recipes which many who celebrate the holiday will be familiar with.

Whether it’s snowy and so frozen outside you have to defrost the ice off your car or sunny and beautiful where you live, any good Christmas is likely to require a good feast. Rather than tucking into meat and other animal products this year, why not turn tradition on its head and opt for an entirely cruelty free Christmas?
