PlantX Bacon Wrapped Roast + Cranberry Mac & Cheese

Christmas trees are appearing at windows, lights are twinkling, and kitchens are quickly filling up with lots of festive ingredients! The day of festive feasting is soon upon us. Have you got your vegan Christmas recipes ready? Do you have the same thing every year? I like to change things up a bit each year. One of the many great things about a plant-based lifestyle is not having to follow the “rule” of eating turkey for Christmas!

There are vegan Christmas recipes aplenty and there are no hard and fast rules about what the traditional dish should be. You can try and replicate a turkey in plant-based form, or you can veer off the trodden path and get creative. This recipe is a two-part recipe and is something I’m planning to make on the big day. What could be more decadent than a vegan roast wrapped in vegan bacon?!

Cranberry Mac & Cheese

Pair it with some festive mac and cheese and - trust me - you’ll remember why you opted for plant-based food! Read on to learn how to make one of my favorite vegan Christmas recipes today.
