Cracking Christmas Cuisine
Meat free main courses – all wrapped up
26 July 2012
Christmas festivities are in the planning stages and these days it’s essential to include a magnificent meat free main course as part of your cracking Christmas cuisine. The Vegetarian Society’s cookery school, Cordon Vert, has created two brand new main courses to add to its delicious and extensive Christmas recipe database - a Festive Filo Pillow and a Christmas Pie. If you are looking for veggie main courses, starters, drinks or desserts then visit www.vegsoc.org/christmas for lots of inspiration.
Online you’ll find hints and tips to cater for veggies at Christmas, gift ideas and all the recipes you could need. Choose from mouth-watering main courses with traditional twists and festive flavours such as:
Sin Free Squash and Pepper Stacks, Wild Mushroom Stroganoff with a Herb Crumb Topping, Courgette Latkes with Cream Cheese and Grated Beetroot, Smoked Bean Curd Bakes with Shiitake and Walnut Stuffing, Celeriac and Parsnip Rosti with a Cumberland Sauce, Walnut and Spiced Plum Christmas Cob. If they don’t tickle your fancy we’ve nut roasts and all the trimmings too. Or we have our two new mains.
The Christmas Pie is a hearty pie perfect to grace any table packed with mushrooms, cranberries, chestnuts, hazelnuts, butter beans, leeks and a smidge of mustard. It’s dairy free, vegan and is accompanied by sumptuous homemade gravy.
The Filo Christmas Pillow serves two as a main course and is designed for those who have veggie guests over at Christmas. This filo pillow is teeming with texture from the walnuts and pumpkin seeds, while the Wensleydale with cranberry, mushrooms, port and parsley all make a delicious dish.
Recipes are created by the Vegetarian Society’s cookery school, Cordon Vert.
Cordon Vert teaches both the general public and professionals the many aspects of vegetarian cookery.
