A few days before Christmas 2010 is when I went vegan! I heard someone say.. This was the worst time of year for the animals, and I never touched meat again.

I would love to impress the family and extended relatives who have never had vegan food and feel like Christmas is a great opportunity. So I'm interested to see what everyone is cooking for their Christmas this year to get some ideas happy

I'm going to try making this: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/6033/sweet+potato+leek+roulade+with+xmas+stuffing

I've never done it before but the reviews are really good and it does look interesting enough to serve for a special occasion happy

I also like the idea of a rice, potato and lentil pie...

Traditional roast veggies!! Gravy..

Maybe some couscous, pasta salad, a warm roast veggie and pine nut salad...

But until I get my own place and have the kitchen space for fun things like that.. I usually just buy myself a sanitarium veggie roast and eat that with side dishes whilst everyone else eats meat. Hum.

Looking forward to hearing some other ideas happy

I will be making this for main: http://foodandspice.blogspot.com.au/2008/04/mushroom-nut-roast-in-puff-pastry.html

I will veganise it of course, which is too easy. i will eat it with the side dishes that will be served ie. salad, roast vegies, gravy, cranberry sauce maybe etc.

And for dessert i am making a berry 'cheese' cake.

i wil post photos ... if , it works out alright ! * fingers & toes*

I'm heading for a relative's for Christmas, and they always cook me delicious vegan asian food, plus my friend's family, who are ALL vegetarian, are probably cooking some delicious vegan meal, and I will probably throw in some Tofurky or something.

and this seitan roulade for Christmas 2 (the real christmas day lol)

If anyone wants more ideas, i made Jamie Oliver's nut loaf recipe last year and it tasted really nice. http://www.jamieoliver.com/magazine/recipes-view.php?title=best-ever-cranberry-aamp-pistachio-nut-r

This chestnut roulade also looks really good! I might make it next year.
