Recipes for vegan Christmas Eve 1

This will be my third Christmas Eve when I'm on a vegetarian diet with rejection of eggs and fish. This year I decided to bet on a few proven recipes, i.e. our favorite veggie dishes.

Oyster mushrooms herring

Herring has always reminded me of this opportunity and it remained so. I only make this dish on Christmas Eve.
- 250 g Oyster mushrooms
- liter of vegetable broth
- 2-3 cup of oil (I use a mixture of oils - linseed, pumpkin and sunflower seeds)
- 2 large white onions
- boiling water about 3 glasses
- Himalayan salt
-3 bay leaves
- 4 allspice
I wash my oyster mushrooms and cut them into thin strips. I cook mushrooms in vegetable broth for about 15 minutes. After this time, strain the oyster mushrooms (I do not pour the broth, I prepare mushroom soup with dried mushrooms from it. The aromas of oyster mushrooms give it an even deeper taste).
I leave the drained oyster mushrooms to cool completely. After this time, I put them in a glass box in which they will mature.
Chop the onion finely and pour boiling water. Raw onion does not affect my stomach well. When the onion cools down, I add it to the oyster mushrooms, salt all abundantly, pour oil and mix. I add bay leaves and allspice. I close the box and leave oyster mushrooms for a minimum of 24 hours. Oyster mushrooms prepared in this way are great as an addition to veggie salads, but also traditional ones.

Baked garlic paste with rosemary

This year, I bet on two proven spreads for sandwiches. One of them is baked garlic paste, which was a huge surprise for me. Roasted garlic tastes completely different than raw. The paste has a delicate taste and the addition of rosemary gives it an additional aroma.
- 1,5 garlic heads (if very large, one is enough)
- a can of white beans
- dried rosemary (2 teaspoons)
- 3 tablespoons oil mix (I use a mix of oils - linseed, pumpkin and sunflower seeds)
- salt
- pepper
Garlic bake in shell for about 25 minutes in 180 degrees (top and bottom). Strain the beans on the strainer at this time. Roasted garlic is peeled from the shell (very easy to peel) and left to cool completely.
I pour three tablespoons of the oil mixture into the blending container (I have a Bosch blender, which I wrote about here), pour 2 teaspoon of dried rosemary, throw in the drained beans and peeled garlic. I blend it all into a smooth paste. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

If you're looking for a blender, or rather a kitchen helper, the Bosch blender, which I mentioned above, will be a good choice. I have it for some time and I can confidently say that: they had nuts and crushed ice without any problems. With this blender I also make potato pancakes (I do not have to rub the potatoes) and all pastes for sandwiches. With a hand blender I blend soups with creams.

Bean lard with prunes

This is another typical Christmas dish, due to aromatic spices and dried plums, i.e. flavors that I associate with Christmas Eve.
The recipe for this dish comes from Jadłonomia blog

    Winter is the peak of the season for oyster mushroom growing wild in our forests. If there is no frost, the hats will unfold. In my opinion, tastier than those in stores. In this video oyster mushrooms found near Wroclaw and some information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCYpSZ2cvKo

    Great ideas, it's worth giving as many blogs as possible to show that holidays are not only fish and meat ...

    I'm not vegan, I'm not even a vegetarian, but I don't say no to your recipes. I will introduce some recipes to my menu.

    Mmmm but tasty here! I would love to put everything on my Christmas table but I don't know what the reaction of the rest of the family could be: D Best regards, nice pictures!

    Baked garlic paste! Sounds delicious ... I have to try it sometime, although maybe not on Christmas Eve 🙂

    Christmas Eve without fish must be a real challenge. It's good that such posts are created - there are more and more people in Poland who are on such a diet for health and various reasons. Probably 10 years ago would have been impossible because they would have died of hunger 🙂 And now so much inspiration!

    Very interesting post Dominiko! Unfortunately, MM is an avid carnivore or actually a chicken-eater 🙁 and you can't even convince him of a vegan diet without mentioning 🙁 when in February I was on a vegan diet I really liked many dishes and I often cook them unfortunately but only for myself ... certainly I'll try the baked garlic paste. I am very curious how it looks like vegan Christmas Eve and I would love to read about it - greetings 🙂

      It's quite easy with Christmas Eve, because it's almost vegetarian in itself. I don't eat fish for that, Piotrek for a great opportunity. In my case, all salads with mayonnaise, eggs and fish fall off. Most often for Christmas I just come with my own food, so as not to bother anyone jest It's worse with Easter, because we don't eat eggs, but it is also possible to embrace here, we just do not eat the whole saints, only bread, possibly cake, salt, etc.

    This roasted garlic paste interested me. I will try because I love garlic 🙂

      I also love everything that is garlic. I invite you to the second part, which will include recipe for sunflower paste with garlic, which can also be used as a garlic sauce 😉 With us often lands on pizza as I make.

    Oh, such a garlic paste I will be happy to make it tomorrow!
    All bean spreads disappear at the speed of light for me, so this one will probably be a hit.
    Thanks for the recipe 😉

      Let me know if you liked it. Roasted garlic has a slightly different taste than in traditional form, even better for me.

    Great recipes! And there are no fish and I hate them 🙂 Roasted garlic paste with rosemary.

      I also never liked fish, so I had no problem eliminating them from the menu.

      I don't like vegans either. Everyone at Christmas eats my dishes - even die-hard carnivores 😉

    I buy a recipe for mushroom herring, and I wonder if it is possible to figure it out in the forest (this is the account of next year's harvest?

    • Avatar [Email protected] 10 December 2016 / 09: 44

      Of the forest rather not, because they have too intense smell, besides, they have a slightly different structure than oyster mushrooms and I suspect that they can break down. Oyster mushrooms definitely work best in this case 🙂

    Just delicious 🙂 Thank you for the recipes, I will definitely check them 🙂

    Cool recipes, I'll be happy to try them 🙂
