So basically I am trying to lose a stone before Christmas, 6lb gone so far. I have planned Christmas Day/Boxing Day food, but want to make an decadent meal that I can really look forward to on one other day over Christmas.

I don't eat meat, fish or eggs, but love cheese, mushrooms, spinach, chickpeas.

So please share your most indulgent dishes smile

Stuffed mushrooms on a bed of rocket with looooads of balsamic glaze!

Have you looked for vegetarian wellington?

I watched an old rerun of GBBO last night and someone did a veggie one, looked quite good!

JustTheWayYouAre Fri 13-Oct-17 12:16:29

Oo thanks, garlic mushrooms on toast to start.

Not really into puddings

The thing is I spend so much time planning and cooking for other people, I run out of ideas.

Another vote for vegetarian wellington. Mushroom, butternut squash and chickpea is my favourite.

KittyLover91 Fri 13-Oct-17 12:36:14

Glad to be of help smile

This is making me hungry and I'm stuck at work with a cuppa soup and a stick of cheese, boohoo!

Big fan of the garlic mushrooms on toast. Thick, fresh bread and cheese is a must though!

Im now drooooling

Doesn’t look nice at all but my step dad makes this for my mum and I (veggies) at Christmas and I look forward to it all year. Honest to god I made him make me one for Boxing Day the year I went to my MILs because it’s amazing!!

Spinach and lentil roulade 🤤

capercaillie Fri 13-Oct-17 12:41:32

It's a gorgeous recipe. It used to be my Christmas dinner in my vegetarian days. I still cook it and look forward to this one.

KittyLover91 Fri 13-Oct-17 12:41:52

A starter to share? Cant wait to try this myself!

I wish you were a fishandchipocrite not s proper vegetarian. I'd tell you to google Jansson's Temptation - can't link on my phone...!

Parsnip roulade is a fav here.

Butternut squash, mushroom and spinach lasagne. It's completely over the top and gorgeous and rammed full of garlic

It's from the Crank's Bible book. I can't find the recipe online, but it's basically:

Butternut squash sliced and slathered with pesto then roasted (layer 1)
Loads of mushrooms cooked in garlic and creme fraiche (layer 2)
Garlicky, peppery wilted spinach with more creme fraiche stirred through (layer 3).

Keep a bit of each layer back then put all remnants on the top and smother with cheese. Bake, devour, stink out the neighbourhood grin

Sorry, work called.

So many gorgeous recipes. I'm definitely leaning towards puff pastry. Could I use that instead of filo @CrabappleCake? And do I have to share?

No to the roulades thanks as I don't eat eggs, but will save the recipes for my veggie dcs.

Not a huge fan of goats cheese, probably because it's over used by unimaginative chefs hmm

Delia's spinach and ricotta lasagne (the recipe uses four types of cheese, not just ricotta).
It's a complete faff to make though!

NiceCuppaTeaAndASitDown Fri 13-Oct-17 17:59:05

Sweet potato gnocchi with blue cheese and walnut sauce. Heaven!

FusionChefGeoff Fri 13-Oct-17 18:04:32

Jamie has an incredible veggie lasagne with butternut squash, ricotta, spinach, cheese etc.

I’m not veggie but make a huge batch every now and then for freezer food. I’ll try to find it
