Vegan campaigning charity Viva! has published a brand new recipe guide just in time for the festive season. The Deliciously Vegan Christmas Guide features over 25 recipes – including a tried and tested recipe for the elusive vegan Yorkshire pudding.

To begin your festive feast, the Deliciously Vegan Christmas Guide teaches you how to make Creamy Mushroom Parcels, made using shop-bought vegan filo pastry, or Roast Beetroot & Cashew Crostini. For the main course, vegans and non-vegans have a choice of six scrumptious steaks, tarts and roulades! Including a choice of two luxury roasts – the first a more traditional festive nut roast and the second an incredibly easy and delectable seitan roast.

The Deliciously Vegan Christmas Guide boasts a range of heavenly desserts, such as a Salted Caramel Baked Cheesecake to satiate your sweet tooth and Cranberry ‘Boursin’ Style Cheese for those who prefer a savoury snack. Lastly, the guide features festive cocktails including a creamy and simple recipe for homemade vegan ‘Baileys’.

In addition to the Deliciously Vegan Christmas Guide, the Viva! Shop offers a range of red, white and rosé wine, all lovingly sourced from independent vineyards around the world – perfect for adding the finishing touch to your compassionate Christmas dinner.

Viva! Food and Cookery Manager, Maryanne Hall said:

“Christmas is a joyful time of year and we think there is no better way to spread peace and kindness during the festive season than to extend our compassion to all animals. There has never been a better time to go vegan and our Christmas guide makes it even easier to take that step.

We have compiled our absolute favourite recipes to showcase the delicious plant-based options available to vegans and non-vegans alike during the Christmas season. Our lovely little guide proves that you no longer need animal products to create an abundance of delectable food, cocktails and treats!

Although this guide focuses on Christmas, our vegan recipes can help you all year round. Viva! can introduce you to hundreds more recipes through our online Vegan Recipe Club and app and even offer a 30 Day Vegan challenge to help see you into the New Year.”

The guide is available to order through the Viva! Shop and only costs £2

All proceeds go back to the charity to help Viva! conduct important undercover investigations, monitor the latest research on health and environmental issues, and host vegan outreach events.
