Christmas

If you like to cook for the holidays, try any of these crowd-pleasing vegetarian dishes for dinners, parties or potlucks.
Port-Sweetened Cranberry Sauce

Port-Sweetened Cranberry Sauce

Fresh and dried cranberries are simmered with apple, ginger, and port for a subtly sweet sauce. If you don’t want to use port, you can substitute cranberry or pomegranate juice.

Cumin-Roasted Beets

Cumin-Roasted Beets

These beets can be served warm in a bowl or at room temperature over a bed of greens.

Rich Vegetable Broth

Rich Vegetable Broth

A flavorful broth is the foundation for delicious gravy. Browning only the onions adds enough color and “caramel” richness to support, but not overwhelm, other ingredients. The finished broth is left unsalted, which ensures that the gravy can be reduced as needed without becoming too salty. Make the broth days ahead and chill, or weeks ahead and freeze.

Frozen Cranberry-Cream Pie

Frozen Cranberry-Cream Pie

Sweet-tart cranberry sauce is swirled together with Greek frozen yogurt for an easy holiday dessert. If you’re not a fan of allspice, try ground cloves or cinnamon instead. For a sweeter, creamier pie, double the amount of frozen yogurt.
