We give you two ideas to whet your appetite at your Christmas dinner. On the one hand, you can make a simple mango ceviche. It is much simpler to make than a shrimp ceviche and everyone can eat it, including vegans, because you do not need any ingredient that comes from animals. According to the website Floating Market, to prepare it you only need purple onions, ripe mangoes, lime juice or orange juice, chili peppers of your choice and cilantro. You must peel and chop all the ingredients. Then you just have to mix them all in order: first the mango with the juice and a little salt, then add the chili, then the onion and finally the cilantro.
Another very elegant appetizer can be stuffed peppers, which, although they sound complicated, are actually very simple to make. You must empty the peppers, season them with olive oil and salt and leave them in the oven for half an hour. You can then fill them with whatever you want. The Ecoosfera portal recommends filling them with chopped vegetables and stir-fries, such as onions, garlic, and carrots. There is also recommended to use a mushroom sauce that you can make with garlic, onion, and chopped mushrooms and stir-fry with a little wine.
We know that the feeling of putting the turkey in the oven is difficult to replace. For this, we bring you two options that will give you the same satisfaction. On the one hand, you can make an aubergine lasagna. This vegetable is often used in many vegetarian and vegan recipes to replace meat. In addition to the aubergines, you can add béchamel sauce, chopped carrots, and raisins for a sweet touch.
Another option is to replace the baked turkey with a whole cauliflower. So is. You can marinate it with the same thing you used to marinate the turkey, except for the animal products, of course. You can bathe it in a dressing made with olive oil, garlic, and some spices and baked! Both main dishes can be accompanied with the traditional Christmas potato salad or with one made with lettuce, olives, and balsamic vinegar.
Almost all desserts are vegetarian desserts. However, many have products of animal origin such as dairy, so here we show you two vegan options for your guests. You can, on the one hand, prepare a rice with milk with coconut milk. According to Animal Gourmet, all you need to do is slowly simmer the coconut milk with the rice (already cooked before), some sugar and lemon juice.
You can also make various desserts such as cakes and bread using fruit to sweeten and replacing eggs and milk with oils, flours, and coconut or almond milk.
Go ahead and have a cruelty free Christmas dinner with these recipes that will give you a special and different touch!
