An essential condiment to spruce up your Christmas meal.
The original version of this recipe calls for caster sugar, a finely ground sugar that’s not as common in the United States as it is in the UK. You can make your own by tossing your fave vegan granulated sugar in a blender and pulsing until it’s a finer texture (but not powdered!).
Sterilize some jars: Place glass jars in large saucepan filled with cold water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer for 3 minutes, then turn off heat. Carefully remove jars from water when ready to fill them.
Make the Cranberry & Orange Sauce: Heat all ingredients in heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat with lid on. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring often.
Remove jars from hot water, spoon sauce into hot jars and seal. Sauce will keep for 4 weeks in fridge.

This vegan take on classic shepherd’s pie is jam-packed with bold and rich flavours that will ensure no one will miss the meat. While a great source of fibre, lentils also contain the highest amount of folate out of all plant-based foods. Oven ready If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet, you’ll need to transfer cooked lentil filling to a baking dish before topping with mashed sweet potatoes and baking.
Cauliflower has been having a moment lately, and this salad proves exactly why. Tender caramelized cauliflower is crowned in a glorious sweet and savoury crumble that will ensure it a place on your table all month long. Of all tree nuts, pecans have the highest concentration of flavonoids, which offer beneficial anti-inflammatory effects, and they also protect your cells from oxidative damage. Crumble perfection This crumble topping is too good not to use it on other preparations. Sprinkle over a carrot ribbon salad to add some extra pizzazz, use as a glorious garnish on a soup or stew, or consider generously spooning over your next vegetable “steak” to add some delicious textural variation.
This gloriously comforting dish gets its creamy lusciousness from a can of white beans. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have on hand instead of broccoli. Pass the pasta Instead of regular pasta, consider serving this sauce over zucchini noodles, carrot noodles, or cooked spaghetti squash.
This nut-free take on classic queso dip is everything you want and more. Paired with chips, crackers, or crudités, this creamy, zesty, smoky, and oh-so-satisfying dip is easy enough to whip up for a cozy snack or as an appetizer for company. Go nuts! If you’re okay to eat nuts, try substituting sunflower seeds with 1 cup (250 mL) raw cashews.
