Can't believe this will be our fourth Christmas as vegans. As everyone knows, family gatherings can easily turn into a disaster. Even more so, if you're a vegan. As we knew it is hard for us to enjoy a party if there's a corpse in the room, last Christmas we told our family we would only come if there were no dead animals (or their secretions etc) on the table. Luckily for us, our family is always happy to get the work of their hands and leave the food preparation for us. So last year we had a fully vegan Christmas! Toms even wanted to rescue a live piglet to bring him to the dinner as a guest, but after consulting with a farm sanctuary ditched the idea. Apparently, the piglet wouldn't like the party. Of course, we made way too much food and everyone enjoyed it. The apple crumble tart was a big hit because it's a classic Latvian recipe which for some reason they thought couldn't be veganised. So what I'm trying to say is, these gatherings are a great way to show your friends and family how vast the vegan culinary world is and that you can easily have a great feast without harming animals, environment and your health.
So here's an idea for your Christmas feast.
