Being vegan during the holidays just got a little bit better

Cook up these delicious options during the holidays

The holidays are here, but when you are restricted to a plant based diet, attending all the parties and festivities adds an extra layer of stress.

Accidents happen, accidentally eating a piece of bacon that was hidden in that delicious amuse bouche can end you for the night.

Never fear, there are tons of options for vegans this holiday season, the good news is, more and more keep emerging each year thanks to the creativity of chefs.

When designing your menu this year here are some delicious items you can include, that even your carnivore friends will enjoy!

Appetizers:

Head down to One Big Table, or Nature’s Fare on Cooper Road to pick up Black Sheep Vegan Cheese, be sure to pick up extra because it is sure to be a hit in your holiday charcuterie board.

Whip up these delicious elevated pigs in a blanket with plant based Fieldroast vegan frankfurters, available at Choices Markets on Harvey Avenue,Nature’s Fare on Cooper Road and Save-on-Foods on Cooper Road.

The main course:

For dessert:

Their drool-worthy hot chocolate and donuts will be available conveniently during a pop-up shop Dec. 15 at the Souk Market from 1 p.m. until 9 p.m.
