Vegan Specific Questions About Holiday Dining Answered:

What do vegans eat for the holidays?

Vegans eat what most non-vegans eat, minus any food that comes from an animal/animal products.

People think it’s tricky, or even mysterious, when they try to figure out what vegans eat for holidays and special occasions. But, there are so many vegan options available today that you can make almost any meal or side dish and easily veganize it by using the vegan version of something (cheese, yogurt, cream) that you buy at a store!

Sides are even easier to veganize or find vegan versions of! So vegans eat the same as others, just a cruelty free version!

What can I make for a vegan guest?

There are far too many options to list them all here! And, most of the dishes you are planning to serve anyways, especially sides, could easily be made vegan. Just make some exchanging out the cows milk for a non dairy milk, butter for vegan butter, etc.

For sides, scroll back through the list of recipes above!
