Recipe Search: Christmas
This is a truly sumptuous dish yet it isn't difficult. It can all be done while the squash bakes in the oven.
If you don't have cooked wholegrains, they can be made - as with the sauce and salad - while the squash is baking.
The picture here shows the recipe made with quinoa. Try experimenting - a fried smoked tofu cubes or a few handfuls of cooked aduki beans would work well in the recipe, as would chopped nuts such as hazel or brazil - but the world's your falafel!
A lovely, easy fruit cake that is good at just about any time of the year, although especially nice during the festive season. It isn't so dark and heavy as traditional Christmas cake but none the worse for that!
See how we made it by viewing our slideshow at the bottom of the page.
PS - never overmix vegan cakes and don't use an electric mixer - eggless cakes don't benefit from over-beating, quite the opposite.

No soggy green mush here - the combination of spicy nutty sauce over slightly crunchy sprouts should convert even the most fervent sproutophobe. You might like to try it with our Chestnut Rice recipe.
This dessert is easy to make but looks really impressive. Preparation is quick - just leave at least an hour for it to set. A coulis is just a posh name for a thin sauce! In fact, they are incredibly easy to make - just whizz the fruit up with a blender to get a blast of wonderful colour and flavour. You could also vary the fruit - eg try mango or blueberries in the jelly or strawberries in the coulis.
This dessert is not only great in taste but beautiful to look at.
