7 Holiday Recipes To Feed Your Vegetarian Friends & Family


There’s nothing worse than cooking an extravagant holiday meal, with a succulent turkey as the show-stropper, only to learn that a huge chunk of those attending can’t eat your main dish due to dietary restrictions.

Or, on the other end of the situation, it’s equally bad when you’re a vegetarian and have to sit through a whole meal where you can only eat 1/8th of all the dishes.

The holidays can be hard like that, but they don’t have to be. Cooking for vegetarians or vegans doesn’t need to be a chore, as there are so many amazing recipes made without meat or animal by-products.

For some inspiration, and to ensure everyone at the table gets to stuff their bellies full of delicious food, here are seven holiday recipes to serve to your vegetarian friends and family.
