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.
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:
Organic seitan from Bertyn is easy to use in vegetarian dishes. In classic dishes you can use seitan as a meat substitute.

When they discuss the various kinds of meat substitutes, and Attila tries the prepared seitan, he says: “Wow – that’s really good!”. Attila Hildmann also talks about the consistency of seitan: “Seitan has become extremely crispy and has a meat-like consistency. It’s amazing!”
