Now for the Main Course!

There’s something for everyone here. All of these entrees can be made in advance, so all you have to do is whip them out of the fridge and warm them up on the big day. It completely takes the pressure off, I LOVE meal prep for this very reason! Being prepared is preparing for a whole load of FUN during the Holidays:) Each one of these has been a winner during the year which is why they’ve made it onto the 21 Plant-Based Holiday Recipes list!

Frankly, salads are often a last-minute uninspired creation, or even entirely overlooked 🙁  Why not change that up this year and go all out to surprise your guests with an exceptional salad taking front and center of your Holiday table? These two offerings are loaded with protein, fantastic flavor, and packed with plant-powered goodness. You’re going to feel GREAT after eating these! A wonderful salad is a MUST in the lineup of 21 Plant-Based Holiday Recipes 🙂

It’s the Holidays so dessert is definitely on the table. When you eat whole-food plant-based desserts, they’re an entirely different experience. Gone are the highly refined sugars, and the heart-clogging dairy. In their place, we’ve got pure FLAVOR AND PLANT GOODNESS!  You’ll feel energized after eating these, instead of groaning in a food coma! The following are firm favorites so they make the 21 Plant-Based Holiday Recipes list!!
