The holiday season is upon us, and I for one am excited! Christmas is my favourite time of the year, so I tend to go a bit overboard with the amount of Christmas spirit that I exude during the season. I love decorating the tree, going Christmas shopping and of course cooking/baking delicious meals. One of my favourite things to do is to try different recipes every year because it not only helps to keep things interesting, but there are so many amazing recipes every year that I need to try. Throughout the years I’ve come up with a list of holiday recipes that I love, and I’ve decided to share some of them with you so, here are 13 of my all-time favourite vegan holiday recipes, Enjoy!
