20 vegan christmas recipes plus apron contest winner

My Brown Rice Christmas Maki are red, green – and lean.
It's almost 60 degrees in Philadelphia today– not exactly Christmas weather. But warm or cold, Christmas is coming. Despite my best efforts at staying organized, I am still trying to figure out what to cook for the upcoming Christmas festivities.

For those of you who are, like me, still finalizing your holiday menus, I've compiled a handy-dandy list of 20 of my Christmas-friendly vegan recipes. Four from my "Feast of the Seven Grains" menu in Celebrate Vegan appear today on the Today Show web site – so cool that vegan is finally going mainstream. Happy, healthy holidays, everyone!
  • Congratulations to VegieGail, winner of the retro apron. Gail, please email me and tell me your mailing address.

I'm glad you posted that vegan sushi roll picture. We want to do an Asian Christmas dinner and you just gave me a good idea.

I like the red Christmas tree, so different than the green and white ones we see, I had a purple one!
