If you are looking for ways to make your holiday meal a lot more interesting, look no further. These vegetarian and vegan recipes are not only gourmet but most are fairly simple to make. I swear even the most staunch meat eater will be going back for seconds...or thirds. So make a lot, and have yourself a Merry (and green) Christmas.
