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:

What fans say about Bertyn

“When you cook seitan the taste depends on the spices you use, because seitan does not have much of a taste of its own. Thanks to its firm structure, seitan can be fried, roasted or barbecued, or simply on a pizza. You can find seitan in the cold section of your natural food and health food shops.”
