I originally wanted to put together a list with vegan recipes for every course of a traditional Christmas dinner – think appetizers, sides, sauces, desserts, etc. But then I thought that I already had a lot of those in my post with 80+ plant based Thanksgiving dinner recipes.

So I decided to zero in on the main course instead. After all, the centerpiece of every holiday dinner gets the most attention, and when we go vegan, replacing the traditional glazed ham or beef Wellington on our new vegan Christmas menu can get puzzling.

Thankfully, the vegan community has come up with lots of recipes of vegan main dishes that are perfect for a memorable Christmas dinner. And in today’s post, you’ll see 21 great vegan main course ideas that will surely get you inspired.

These vegan Christmas recipes have been created by a variety of food bloggers from all over the blogosphere (including yours truly). While not all of these bloggers are 100% vegan, all of the recipes below are vegan.
