Being a vegetarian for many years means I have experimented with many variations on the traditional Christmas dinner. Butternut squash lasagne, goats cheese and roasted tomato quiche, and the Quorn roast to name but a few.
Quorn is an excellent alternative to meat but please not that if you are a vegan reader then Quorn products are not suitable for vegans, however, the Linda McCartney food range is simply delicious and many of the products are suitable for vegans.
Both Linda McCartney and Quorn products are available at major supermarkets and many of these stores hold their own brands of vegetarian/vegan foods which can be just as delicious.
If you are a meat eater why not set yourself a challenge this Christmas and try something new for Christmas dinner?
