Go Beyond The Nut Roast - Vegetarian Christmas Recipes!

15th October 2020

Although Christmas is likely to be very different this year, we are here to inspire your working kitchen. Whether you will be operating on Christmas day or offering a delivery service, we know that Christmas dinner will be the focal point of the day!
12% of Brits, that’s 8 million, will enjoy a vegan or vegetarian Christmas, according to an animal welfare charity*. In addition to this, 24% of Brits will cater for plant-based and vegetarian family members or friends on the special day.
With the demand continuing to increase, gone are the days when the only vegetarian and vegan option on a Christmas menu was a “Nut Roast”. Using a selection of our vegetarian and vegan friendly stocks, gravies, jus and sauce bases, our development chefs have created a selection of inspiring recipe options for your meat-free menu:
