Christmas is around the corner, and I'm sure you've been looking for options for your Vegan Mexican Christmas menu.  Enjoy!

Christmas is around the corner, and I’m sure you’ve been looking for options for your Vegan Mexican Christmas menu.  I have crafted this incredible menu for you with the help of some blogger friends, so you han have a feast this Christmas. I wanted the menu to be similar to what a Mexican family might have for their Christmas Eve dinner, so there are some non-Mexican dishes like lasagna on there, because I do  know families that make lasagna for Christmas.

Appetizer/Salad:

Nochebuena Salad

A refreshing salad of romaine lettuce, roasted beets, oranges, jicama, pomegranate, and peanuts.

Macadamia Nut Queso Fresco w/ Pineapple Chipotle Salsa

Make a cheese platter with these macadamia nut cheese. It pairs well with nuts, fruits, and crackers or toasted baguette.

Mexican Hummus with Chiles Toreados

This spicy hummus is perfect for dipping veggies or tortilla chips.

Potato and Spinach Croquettes

They are crispy and golden brown, but warm and satisfying. Great finger food!

Entrees:

Vegan Jackfruit Pozole Rojo

Jackfuit replaces the pork in this recipe with great results. Serve with tostadas, radishes, lime juice, and cabbage.

Vegan Pozole Verde

The green version of pozole is flavored with poblano peppers, tomatillo, and jalapeño.

Vegan Menudo

What?? It is possible. This recipe uses textured soy protein to replace the pancita.

Vegan Bacalao a la Vizcaina

A traditional salt cod dish, remade with hearts of palm, artichoke hearts, olives, tomatoes, potatoes, capers, and red peppers.

Espagueti Verde 

Spaghetti in a creamy poblano pepper sauce. It’s just the right amount of spicy.

Lasagna

Lasagna on Chritmas?? Yes, even Mexicans eat lasagna. It makes for a good entree.

Potato Adobo Tamales

Tamales filled with potatoes in adobo sauce. Serve just out of the steamer.

Red Chile Jackfruit Tamales

Jackfruit once again replaces pork in this northern Mexico version of tamales.

 

Dessert:

Buñuelos

Fried dough sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar. For sure a childhood favorite.

Hojarascas (Polvorones)

Also known as Mexican wedding cookies. I like them sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, but you can also do powdered sugar.

Vegan Tequila Truffles

Rich an boozy truffles that are great for gifting.

Strawberry Tamales

If you are not familiar with sweet tamales, you have to try these first.

Chocolate Tamales

Filled with semi-sweet chocolate chips, and pecans.

Drinks:

Ponche

A hot spiced fruit punch. Served with or without alcohol.

Champurrado

Unlike any hot chocolate you’ve ever had. It is thickened with masa or masa harina.

Atole Almendrado

A warm corn based beverage, meant to warm you up this winter.

Vegan Rompope

Mexican eggnog. Also a traditional Christmas drink.
