Food is so important at Christmas and the vegetables are no exception. There are a wide range vegetable recipe choices including steamed, mashed and roasted.
Chickpeas and couscous combine to give this low-kilojoule dish a high protein score.
Squid in a tomato wine sauce is a popular Italian Christmas favourite. It's good as a side dish or served over pasta.
Fresh okra is delicious when simmered with tomatoes in this Creole-inspired vegan side dish. Use more cayenne if you like it spicy.
This is not your ordinary popcorn; Christmas is a time for overindulgence so why not sweeten up the popcorn too. I let my nieces and nephews eat it and have even been known to put it in a bag with a fancy ribbon for a gift.
Capsicums – especially red ones – are a superb source of vitamin C. These relatives of the chilli also contain flavonoids, which seem to fight cancer in several different ways.

There's lots of recipes around for lunch and dinner on Christmas day but what about breakfast? If you're vegetarian and want something yummy and easy that looks great when served try these!
I look forward to summer every year to get the BBQ out and make this salad, it has even made it to the Christmas table.
This dip tastes so good. It makes a lot as well so it is great for a big party or at Christmas time, when you may have guests over a few days. I use Miracle Whip because I like the flavour, but you can substitute your favorite mayonnaise. You can also substitute the soup mix with French onion soup mix.
I got this recipe from my mother in law for Christmas, my wife absolutely loves it and I hope it's all welcomed for your family this year for Christmas too.
