Last year, I posted all the recipes I made for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This year when I was planning on what to make, it was great to look back as inspiration for this year and just to see what I had enjoyed the year before. I’m going to do this again this year. So we will start with Christmas Eve!
The main entree this year was these Veggie Loaf Bites. Since some of the other dishes I made for Christmas Eve were more time consuming, this meal was a pleasure to make. It was quick and easy!
You can find the recipe from Happy Herbivore – Light and Lean and it’s definitely worth purchasing.
I was able to make 10 veggie bites! For the mixed vegetables, I used a cup from a large bag I bought at Costco. I think next time I’m going to try a different mixture of vegetables. I wasn’t thrilled with the look of these, but they still tasted great!
I served these with Mushroom Gravy (which I also made for some dishes over Thanksgiving) The gravy recipe is in Everyday Happy Herbivore another book worth purchasing. These bites can also be served with ketchup. I’m sure these would also taste great made into patties and eaten on a bun; the baking time would probably need to be adjusted though.
