Deliciously Ella’s Butternut Squash and Mushroom Wellington  

Most veggies will be more than familiar, and perhaps daunted, by a staple Christmas wellington by now. Thankfully Deliciously Ella has stepped in to save the veggies’ Christmas with a recipe to be smug about at the feasting table. Check out Deliciously Ella’s Butternut Squash and Mushroom Wellington recipe on her Instagram.

Oh She Glows’ Glazed Lentil Walnut Apple Loaf

For anybody who can’t quite get the consistency of a spongy loaf right, this recipe is for you. Oh She Glows has found a long-term solution to save any dry veggie loaf – a sweet tangy glaze poured on top of a loaf combined of stick-to-your-rib lentils, shredded carrots, sweet apple, chunky celery and toasted walnuts. See the full recipe here.

Serve With: Tideford's Vegan Gravy 

Finish any of the above off with lashings of Tideford's Vegan Gravy - a delicious savoury stock of carrots, celery, onion and garlic combined with an umami hit of fresh organic Red Miso and a twist of black pepper.

Merry Christmas Veggie Feasting!
