Christmas dinner, sans meat

Mary Berry's nut roast

Holiday meals often revolve around meat: Thanksgiving turkey, Christmas ham, or Hanukkah brisket are the main courses, surrounded by a phalanx of sides. Vegetarians often must content themselves with the side dishes, but vegetarian main course options are growing in popularity. The Guardian features a Christmas feast that is meat free.

The main course for the meal is a mushroom Wellington, with sides of red cabbage with radichio, and sagey sprouts and squash. It’s a relatively fuss-free meal. If you are interested in going meat-free this holiday season, just turn to the EYB Library. You’ll find nearly 500 hoilday main course ideas with nearly half focused on the Christmas meal, plus thousands of side dishes.

To get you started, here are several meat-free main course dishes that are perfect for the holidays:
