Welcome to holiday cooking with this fabulous collection of 45 Vegetable Recipes for the Holiday Season. All of these recipes are 100% plant-based (vegan) and 100% delicious! I’ve always said that the holidays are all about the sides, and vegetables have always taken the limelight on my holiday table and party menus. Vegetables recipes offer that bright pop of color, vivacious flavor, and crunchy texture to your menu in all categories, including soups, vegan salads, vegan appetizers, vegan side-dishes, casseroles, pasta dishes, and even desserts.

There are so many seasonal vegetables this time of year to cherish, including greens, root vegetables like carrots, turnips, parsnips, and beets, avocados, winter squashes, and tubers, including potatoes, rutabagas, and sweet potatoes. It’s a great time of year to honor plants!

That’s why I asked some of my favorite food bloggers to share their all-time favorite plant-based holiday season vegetable recipes today to inspire your holiday menu planning. I love all of these recipes, and I just can’t wait to try them in my own kitchen this holiday season. Remember, to take time and enjoy the holidays with your friends and family, and give thanks for your good health and abundant, healthful food supply.

Eat and Live Goodness,
