Your Meatless Menu For December!
With all types of friends and family gathering throughout the month, these meatless dishes will make having something for everyone easy and fun!
Baked potatoes are always a good idea, especially when they’re stuffed with a gourmet combo of sun-dried tomato, sautéed spinach and crumbled goat cheese. This inventive gang of ingredients is sure to be something no guest has seen together before but is sure to enjoy. The sweetness of the sweet potato complements the savory spinach, and the rich flavor of sun-dried tomato and salty goat cheese might as well be the cherries on top.
To call this soup hearty is an understatement! Besides cheese-filled tortellini, this soup is packed with the soup-classics onion, celery and carrots, but also includes diced tomato and corn. Seasoned with Italian spices and a dash of cream, you can have this warm, simple, cozy, comfort food ready in only 45 minutes.
Whether you decide to make your own veggie balls or use your favorite pre-made brand, you’ll hear no complaints about this dish. While cocktail meatballs are always a hit, it’s the sauce that sets this dish apart. Made by simmering apricot preserves, vegetable stock, balsamic vinegar and rosemary together for 10 minutes, it’s a tasty combination that fits the holiday vibe pleasantly while still serving up something a little different from the usual fare.
As if risotto isn’t indulgent enough, this farro risotto takes decadence to a whole new level. Made with sage leaves, white wine, pumpkin puree and a vegetarian-friendly cheese, (Parmesan contains animal rennet so it is not vegetarian) this farro risotto is sure to be unlike any you’ve had before. Topped with your choice of paprika-roasted vegetables, you can have this dish ready in under an hour.
Here to add to the argument that cream-sauces are definite comfort food royalty, this mushroom stroganoff is a serious must-try. In addition to your classic stroganoff ingredients, this recipe goes the extra mile by incorporating soy sauce and sour cream for a depth of flavor no one will be expecting. And ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ for the extras suggested in this recipe, whether you use one or all of them you’re in for a treat!
