We’re officially into the holiday season, and you know what that means? FOOD! Lots and lots of delicious food to celebrate with.

Unfortunately, most holiday dishes weren’t created with a vegan diet in mind. Fortunately, I’m here to help with that.

Over the years I’ve created over 70 delicious vegan holiday recipes that are perfect for year-end holiday celebrations. We’re talking every course here, and all the major year-end holidays. Vegan gingerbread men for Christmas, vegan potato latkes for Hanukkah, peanut soup for Kwanzaa, and hoppin’ John for New Year’s. I personally like to indulge in a dish for every holiday.

I’ve left Thanksgiving off the list because I already covered it in my vegan Thanksgiving recipes post. Incidentally, there are lots of vegan Thanksgiving dishes that also work for the year-end holidays, so be sure to check out that post for even more ideas!
