Bubble and squeak always makes me think of Christmas Day. And my Dad. It was his speciality! Continue reading “Baked bubble and squeak”
I was going to post this recipe early in the New Year as an encouragement to use up any leftover mincemeat abandoned in the back of the fridge. But why wait? It’s deserving of much more attention than an after thought – a decadent dessert to share over the festive period. Continue reading “Vegan mincemeat lattice tart”
Thick, warming parsnip soup is a firm favourite in our house during the winter season. And as parsnips are a traditional veg served up with festive feasts, it only seems right to celebrate this loyal root vegetable with a ‘souped up’ 🙂 Christmas spice version. Continue reading “Christmas spiced parsnip soup”
Whilst some people are not big fans of traditional dried fruit Christmas bakes like Christmas cake or mince pies, I’m not one of them! I really love them, and could happily eat them all year round (like my father in law who happily tucks into an individual Christmas pudding mid July!). Continue reading “Mince Pies”
What to have for a Sunday (or Christmas) roast? This is a question I get asked a lot, particularly if a) you’re allergic to nuts or b) you’re just a bit board with nut roast! Continue reading “Lentil, sweet potato and shiitake mushroom loaf”
This traditional fruit pudding is not to everyone’s taste, but I still feel like Christmas Day is only complete after the pudding’s been set on fire and served with lashings of custard (yes custard – I’ve never been a brandy butter kind of person, even before I went dairy free!)

It's December, and I now feel it's ok to start talking about Christmas. I always love this time of year; I'm particularly fond of all the seasonal treats! However, when you're a sensitive eater, whether because of food intolerances or health problems, it can be difficult to fully indulge.
That's why last year I ran my Countdown to Christmas, an advent calendar of delicious seasonal recipes; all whole-food, plant-based and adaptable to be gluten-free and nut-free (except for the nut loaf - sorry!). It covered soups and salads, mains and sides. And of course lots of sweet treats!
As these recipes are scattered over the blog, I've collated them into this guide so you can easily find the one (or two) you're looking for. And to make life even easier, I'm pinning this to the top of the blog until 26th December so you don't have to go rummaging for it. Christmas sensitive eating made easy!
Oh, and if there's something you love to eat at Christmas that's not included, do let me know so I can include them in the future.
