A Very Vegan Christmas (Dinner)…

A Very Vegan Christmas (Dinner)… Posted on December 26, 2013Leave a comment
Ahoy, hello! My name is Jenny. I am a thirty-something human female from Manchester in the north of England. I enjoy rainy days and sad songs, custard donuts and salt & pepper chips and beer, lentil dhal and fried okra, X-Files and Twin Peaks, fierce fat heroines and mental health advocates, dogs and cats and otters and a very special beirdo. To paraphrase Sylvia Plath: "I blog because there is a voice within me that insists on writing lots of ridiculous chuff".

I broke with tradition this Christmas and cooked a vegan feast at home for me and my lovely friend Michelle (not to mention my beloved pooch, Vulpe, and Michelle’s adorable dog Gadget).

Michelle recently moved to Manchester from the US so we enjoyed a very English Christmas Day, with plenty of food, booze, christmas crackers and shameless telly watching.

I went for the easy option this year and bought a Redwoods gammon style roast. Along with that we had roast potatoes, sage & onion stuffing balls, braised red cabbage, apple sauce, cranberry sauce, maple roasted carrots and parsnips, pan fried sprouts, chestnuts and shallots, and a delicious cauliflower/cream cheese puree that Michelle brought along. Oh, and a good helping of onion gravy.

I confess unashamedly to using Paxo, Bisto and ready made cranberry sauce!

I was also lucky to receive some really lovely gifts, including this selection of vegan delights…

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, ate and drank too much and got everything you wanted from Santa!
