Christmas is the perfect time to enjoy great food – and it’s essential to get your vegetarian offering up to scratch.

The Vegetarian Society has unveiled eight delicious dishes from its Festive Flavours collection, including pea and spinach soup, Christmas galette and a zingy fruit and nut salad with chilli and lime.

Mains include an indulgent cheesy lattice pie, a classic nut roast or a chestnut and butter bean Wellington. There’s even a smooth, rich Christmas gravy to make in advance. To round off your meal, try their individual fruity trifle with cashew cream.

Lynne Elliot, chief executive of the Vegetarian Society, said: “We have created a host of brand new recipes for you this year. To make sure everyone can join in and try something tasty, these recipes cater for both vegetarians and vegans. Some are gluten-free and there’s also a delicious dessert that is vegan and raw. You’re sure to find something you’ll love.”
