Let’s do a little “swap this for that” vegan Christmas dinner version! Enjoy your holiday season stress-free with these delicious plant based recipes and tips for how to make your Christmas dinner vegan.

Chances are, there is a veganized version of any dish you can think of. Pinterest is a great place to start if you have a specific recipe in mind.

Otherwise, let’s jump right into our swap-this-for-that vegan Christmas dinner menu!

My mom made us vegan mushroom wellingtons for our first Christmas on a plant based diet, and they’re absolutely amazing. Add a wide variety of mushrooms for different meaty flavors.

Tofu is incredibly versatile, and Christmas dinner is no exception! This tofu roast has incredible texture and flavor. So much better than I even expected! Trust me, you won’t miss the ham!

I absolutely love mushroom gravy! It’s meaty and hearty and so much better than beef gravy.

It’s not Christmas dinner without the potatoes. This recipe is easy to make and has great flavor.

I was never a big fan of stuffing, but this rice pilaf is the perfect substitute.

Dijon is truly one of my favorite things. And, for a little bit of crunch, try adding these vegan bacon bits or fresh pomegranate seeds.

Creamy spinach is a must for your holiday meal!

This creamed corn recipe is absolutely amazing! And a Kansas City favorite.

For a fun twist on the classic dinner roll, try vegan cornbread with your meal.

Gingerbread and cranberry: two Christmas favorites all in one delicious dessert! Enjoy 😍
