We know that getting ready for Christmas dinner can be a stressful thing. We want to make it as easy as possible for you so you can actually enjoy the evening with your loved ones instead of having to break your head about what to serve for dinner.
We put together a few of our favourite vegan Christmas recipes to take the pressure away from you. All these recipes have a festive feel and are very practical. Let's start with a side dish. Our Shiitake green bean recipe is a delicious vegan side dish to which we've given a bit of a twist to keep things interesting.
Green bean recipes are really easy to make if you know how to cook those tricky things. There is not much to it but you have to find the perfect balance. We need them to be fully cooked, but we also want them to stay super crunchy.
If you are wondering how to cook green beans I have an easy tip for this recipe. We are going to simmer the green beans in the broth but first, we have to give them a quick toss on a frying pan to seal in the moisture.
For this, heat up a frying pan with a bit of olive oil. Make sure it's really hot before you throw in the green beans. Otherwise, the veggies will absorb the oil and that's where the soggy mess begins. Toss them for 2 or 3 minutes, this is what will seal the veggies. You can add the broth now and let them simmer for about 10 minutes or so. This technique will give you perfectly tender and crunchy green beans!
I gave this classic recipe a bit of a twist by adding shiitake mushrooms to it. They are really easy to use and add a nice rich flavour to the recipe. Sometimes, it can be hard to find fresh ones so I recommend using dried ones instead. This will make your life so much easier! You can buy them ahead of time just soak them in the water when you need to use them.
This vegan side dish is quick and easy to make. The taste is incredible and it goes really well with all of our other vegan Christmas recipes we have set up for you. And while this dish is perfect for the festivities, keep the recipe close because you will want to cook it on a regular basis.
