My Big Fat Vegan Christmas Dinner

Generation Veg aim to show just how easy, accessible and delicious vegan food can be by hosting monthly markets showcasing the best local brands.

Last night I went along to the “Big Fat Vegan Christmas Feast” hosted by the babes at Generation Veg.

On arrival we were greeted with a welcome fizz but the dinner was BYOB so I brought along a bottle of fizz, it is Christmas after all!

Our 3 course meal was prepared by Aurelija, former chef at Rose and Grants and owner of the newly launched Chu Chu Bakery, so I knew we were in for a treat!

To start we were served smoked “salmon” and cream cheese crostini. This was creative cooking at its finest, turning carrot into a crazy convincing smoked salmon. I’m definitely going to be asking for the recipe as this could be a perfect Christmas day breakfast.

The main event was a seitan wellington roast served with trimmings of creamy mashed potatoes, balsamic brussel sprouts, maple glazed roasted butternut squash, carrots and parsnips. I absolutely loved how much attention was given to the trimmings as they all contributed so much flavour. I’ve sometimes found seitan to be a tad dry but this was moist and delicious.

The dessert was a showstopping chocolate orange bomb! A chocolate orange sponge topped with orange curd then covered in a chocolate mousse. This was unbelievably good, seriously melt in the mouth good.

A night of good food and good company, what could be more festive than that?!

But a Big Fat Vegan Feast is not just for Christmas as rumour has it they will be hosting similar events in the new year so give them a follow on Instagram to keep up to date with future events.

If you want more festive fun, food and cruelty free beauty then make to follow me on Instagram.

Big Christmas Hugs,
