Focus on appetizers. Everyone loves appetizers! Some of us just eat appetizer at parties and so! You can do through other appetizers with meat and vegetables only two or three. Make one or two salads. Salads are the perfect winter warmer, are nourishing and give a good feeling.

What can you do as an appetizer: stuffed zucchini rolls with hummus or cheese, meatballs, fruit tarts vegetable platters of vegetables and two to three different dressings: salsa, guacamole?
Make a cream soup! Maybe we do not eat cream soups at the Christmas table, but it’s a good idea if you have vegetarian guests. You can choose from a lot of cream soups, and absolutely delicious and festive: cream of mushroom soup Jamie Oliver’s is fantastic, cream of pumpkin soup is unique, pea cream soup and a good idea. Make a soup with more special to impress your friends.
The main course has to be something simple, but delicious! The most delicious vegetarian dishes are pies, tarts, quiches, lasagna that even if they are made with vegetable sauces and dough, which makes them special. Here are some ideas: vegetarian lasagna, spinach tart, quiche with tofu.
Order one dessert? Chapter desert, things are easier if you have friends who eat eggs and milk! But if not, there are solutions: ice cream with coconut milk, what if it’s winter chocolate cake! and even raw cake! Do not forget to put on the table and fresh fruit for those who want to eat sweets!
Invite your friends and they come with a prepared! No one will feel offended by this proposal if that’s what you think! On the contrary! Many of your friends even will find it a good idea to also come packed with one prepared, especially if you are vegetarian because they will “ensure” that have nothing to eat! Optionally, you can “share” preparations if someone brings an appetizer, someone should come with a dessert! It’s a good idea for a vegetarian Christmas and more!
Separate the meat vegetarian dishes. Vegetarians should not be isolated in a corner, nor will enjoy if you have to sit next to a large platter with pork! Try to somehow separate vegetarian meat preparations for everybody to be happy.
An early start doing – because Christmas table does not stress you more than necessary, it is better to organize food gradually. Start to cook two or three days before to make sure you have time to do all the food that you intend it. Eventually, you can call a friend to help you! And it’s fun!
