We can all use a little recipe inspiration around the holidays. Especially if you’re responsible for Christmas dinner! With vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, and other dietary restrictions on the rise, it can be challenging to please everyone. My main strategy: start with what everyone can eat! Serve components that not everyone will eat as options on the side. Each recipe also includes the recommended adaptations for vegan guests, gluten free guests, and omnivores that might insist on meat.

Below, you’ll find 20 vegetarian Christmas recipes by dish including vegetarian Christmas mains, appetizers, salads, and sides. Whether you’re looking for a vegan Christmas dinner, or just easy vegetarian Christmas recipes, I’m sure you’ll find something you’re looking for.

So here’s to planning your spectacular holiday menu!
