Don't stress over dinner this holiday season. If you, or a guest, are vegan, there's still a plethora of options for meat-free main dishes that can deck out your dining table. Relying on fresh seasonal produce, flavorful grains, and hearty legumes, you can easily create dishes that are worthy of being a centerpiece. Keep it simple with Zucchini Lasagna and Sweet Potato Chickpea Salad, or go a little more advanced with Stuffed Acorn Squash and Vegetable Paella. Either way, these plant-based Christmas main dish recipes are sure to satisfy even the heartiest of meat-eaters.
Tempeh with Charred Peppers and Kale
Going plant-based has never been so tasty. These main dishes will dazzle family and friends, all the while being free of meat, dairy, and eggs.
Tempeh is a great option for vegetarian or vegan recipes because of its firm texture and incredible flavor adaptability. We love it here with a quick soy sauce hit, layered over earthy kale. Got leftovers? Pile this tempeh and veggie combo into a whole-wheat wrap for a perfect to-go lunch.
