The Christmas season is upon us, so I thought I would share my vegan christmas dinner recipe which I made last year. It’s so delicious I’m going to make it again this year! This tasty vegan christmas dinner consists of Quinoa Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms & Roasted Root Vegetables with my Raw Chocolate Brownie and Banana & Cashew Ice Cream for dessert!
2 Sweet potatoes
8 Brussels sprouts
1 Red onion
2 Garlic cloves
2tbsp Rapeseed oil
4 Portobello mushrooms
1/2tsp Himalayan pink crystal salt
1/2tsp Black pepper
Preheat the fan oven to 200C.
Wash the vegetables. Cut the ends off of the carrots and sweet potatoes and slice them lengthways, arranging them in layers in a baking dish. Cut the Brussels sprouts in half and add to the baking dish with the sliced red onion. Place in the peeled garlic cloves cut into quarters. Drizzle over the rapeseed oil.
Place the baking dish in the hot oven for 30 minutes.
While the vegetables are cooking, prepare the stuffed portobello mushrooms. Firstly weigh out the quinoa and and place in a pan of hot water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 12 minutes. When the quinoa has absorbed most of the water, add in the chopped walnuts. Season with the thyme, salt and black pepper and mix in well.
Cut the stems out of the portobello mushrooms. Now spoon the quinoa mixture into the portobello mushrooms.
After the 30 minutes, remove the baking dish from the oven and carefully place the 4 stuffed portobello mushrooms on top of the roasted vegetables. Return to the oven for 15 minutes.
Serve 2 quinoa stuffed portobello mushrooms and half the roasted vegetables per person.
