Vegetarian festive recipes: Christmas dinner with seitan

Christmas: the festive season is the perfect opportunity to think about what you’re eating. Where does your food come from? Should you go for a traditional dinner or vegetarian? Have your friends and family gone vegetarian or maybe you’ve decided to quit meat and fish yourself? Of course there are many more options that don’t just involve serving a salad or vegetable ratatouille.

Don’t believe anybody who tells you that eating ethically cannot be combined with delicious and more chic meals. There are plenty of festive recipes available that fit your lifestyle perfectly.

Festive seitan recipes – scrap the traditional Christmas dinner

Every Christmas sees the same type of dishes being served – things such as fondues, roulade or venison, and lobster, salmon or fish soup. They are all relatively traditional feasts. But you could prepare something even tastier and more surprising – a delicious vegetarian Christmas dinner. Vegetarian dishes can look just as attractive and appetising as meat or fish dishes, you just have to play a little with the colour and texture. Combinations such as seitan, vegetables, legumes and nuts can make up an extraordinarily delicious festive dinner. Below we have created just one example for perfect seitan starters and main courses:

“For seitan it is always important for me that it is not made from gluten flour but from well-washed and organic spelt. I have bought and tried many different types of seitan and was never satisfied in terms of consistency, texture and flavour. But your spelt seitan convinced me immediately and I am just thrilled!!” sebastian-copien.de
