Vegan Italian: Christmas and more

January 8, 2010

Nicole’s mother was worried about making a vegan Christmas feast. She is a great cook, we assured her, and we’ve always been happy with her dishes, but her anxiety persisted. Really, though, the only adjustment was the replacement or displacement of cheese. The feast was extensive and stellar with eggplant, artichokes, polenta, mushrooms, pasta puttanesca (no photo) and Sandy’s famous vinegar peppers (she makes them every time we visit). So, no one need feel sorry for vegans at the holidays (as the photos below can attest).

You needn’t feel sorry for us regarding pizza either. We’ve managed to make some pretty interesting and satisfying stuff. Fortunately, we received the Millennium Restaurant cookbook for Christmas, and it has provided us with many ideas and amendments for other recipes.
