Simple Vegan Holiday Recipes

No need to spend hours in the kitchen for a delicious vegan holiday meal, every dish in this list of holiday recipes can be made in 60 minutes or less. This list includes a mix of classic holiday recipes (like these Creamy Mashed Potatoes) and comforting holiday spins that we love. Make sure to scroll to the end to satisfy your sweet tooth.




For a simple and healthy seasonal breakfast, try this recipe for Roasted Persimmons with Cashewmilk Yogurt.  To make your morning easier, simply roast the Fuyu persimmons the day before. Another make-ahead breakfast we recommend is Granny Smith Overnight Oats, the combination of sweet cinnamon and oat make for a comforting morning treat. If you prefer a savory breakfast, try this satisfying Chickpea Shakshuka.


Vegetable Sides

If you are looking for the quintessential holiday vegetable side, then make these Creamy Mashed Potatoes.

To get your pumpkin fix, try this Roasted Pumpkin with Tahini Sauce which uses our Cashewmilk Yogurt to make the sauce extra creamy.

If you prefer a green vegetable or Sour Cream based sauce, try this Blistered Broccolini with Sage Cream Sauce instead.

Or, if you like tangy sauce but prefer a medley of vegetables, then try this recipe for Roasted Fall Vegetables with Balsamic Dressing.

Double the recipe for any of these vegetable sides – they are all very versatile and delicious enough to want to eat two days in a row. 



There is something so comforting about warm soup on a chilly winter day. The combination of cumin, chili flakes and lemon gives this Spiced Carrot Soup with Cashewmilk Yogurt deep flavor. If you want to pack vegetables in your soup, then try this refreshing Herby Green Goddess Soup



What is your favorite orange winter vegetable – carrot, sweet potato, or butternut squash? 

If you picked butternut squash, then make this Butternut Squash and Sage Lasagna – the crisp layer of pasta on top is a perfect contrast to the creamy butternut squash filling.

For the sweet potato fans, try these crispy and delicious Sweet Potato Pancakes with Chive Sour Cream (or this runner up recipe: Sweet Potato Hasselbacks).  

Although carrots might not be the most popular orange winter vegetable, this Carrot Farro Risotto with Dill Cashewmilk Yogurt may change your mind. Carrot, farro and dill is a winning combination, especially when paired with creamy Forager Project Cashewmilk yogurt.

Baked Apples with Cardamom Sour Cream are a warming treat that will make your kitchen smell wonderful thanks to the cinnamon and cardamom. Baking the apples makes them soft and tender, while adding walnuts adds an appealing crunch. 


These gluten-free and Vegan Sugar Cookies are equally delicious as they are fun to decorate. Double the batter and package them as a special DIY gift for a friend.


If you prefer chocolate desserts, try these Vegan Chocolate Clusters. Crunchy, chewy, slightly salty, chocolatey clusters – these treats will melt in your mouth.


You wouldn't know this wasn't dairy!
