No one in my family is missing the meat in this vegetarian chestnut roast with a delicious mushroom stuffing. Try adding thyme and grated cheese for a flavour boost.
Got a bird that needs stuffing? Or perhaps you have a vegetarian feast that you are planning? Either way, this delicious vegetarian stuffing recipe is for you! This stuffing is light and tangy and ideal for stuffing a 6kg bird with some left over to bake on the side, alternatively the stuffing can be baked entirely by itself.
This is a very versatile recipe. You can try it with many different combinations of nuts, seeds and vegetables. For best results, it's worth blitzing the sunflower seeds into a coarse flour in a food processor.
Enjoyed by vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike, this tasty stuffing benefits from the addition of mashed potatoes to achieve a delightfully creamy and substantial result which can be used to stuff your Christmas turkey, or it can be cooked in it's own dish.
I invented this recipe because I found it impossible to fit anything more in the oven when cooking a big family feast, therefore this stuffing is made on the hob and tastes just as delicious. Great served alongside Christmas turkey, roasties and all the other yummy side dishes.
Ok, so you do cheat a little by using a stuffing mix for this recipe - but if you want it to be very easy, this is the way to go! You can always supplement with some fresh herbs like sage or rosemary if you happen to have them on hand.
If you are short on time and looking to achieve similar results to a roasted parsnip then try this technique which involves par-boiling and then pan frying. This is a great option for when the oven is full on Christmas day!
Invigorate your Brussels sprouts with a zesty and fragrant gremolata. Gremolata is a traditional Italian garnish consisting of raw garlic, lemon zest and parsley. Christmas dinner sprouts will never be the same again!
Honey and Dijon mustard compliment Brussels sprouts nicely and this is a great recipe if you are looking to save on oven space for Christmas day.
This is a great vegetarian alternative to the traditional meatloaf. It's great for Sunday lunch, Christmas or Easter. Serve with potatoes and vegetables, if desired.
