A Rich Vegan Holiday Meal—That’s Secretly Healthy

Think you have to sacrifice decadence for diligence? Not with these tasty but healthful recipes.

We liken the holidays to having both a cartoon devil and angel perched on our shoulders. Throughout the months of November and December, the devil tells us to indulge to our heart’s delight, regardless of the saturated fat or caloric density, while the angel suggests that we practice some semblance of moderation so that we don’t come to in January in a state of post-food-coma misery. But now, we can literally have our cake and eat it too, thanks to the wizardry of Angela Liddon, the creator of the popular vegan food blog Oh She Glows. Here, she offers us three mouthwatering seasonal treats that will prove high in satisfaction and low in guilt. With luscious mashed potatoes, warming stew, and even sumptuous toffee-pecan pudding, you’ll enjoy all of the flavor without the requisite holiday hangover.
