Christmas vegetarian inspiration

I am hosting Christmas meal this year for a mix of meat-eaters and vegetarians. I have it covered for the meat-eaters and will do loads of vegetables, roast potatoes, veggie stuffing etc that should suit everyone. I wondered if anyone has any delicious ideas for the main part of the veggies' meal. I want to provide something really tasty for them and DCs definitely don't a Quorn roast (again)! I am happy to make something myself but thought it would be good to have some shop-bought things in as backup. Any ideas gratefully received!

We are having filo pastry Christmas crackers filled with mushroom,chestnut, cream and port. The children like tomato and onion in theirs.

I made a spectacular Christmas pie one year with a hot water crust and layers of interesting veg inside (red and green layers). Good because you can make it in advance.

I fancy this one though

Thanks for the link to the pithivier - it looks delicious and I could make it in advance which would be useful. Lots more interesting recipes on that site too and I love the sound of your crackers!

Nut roasts are lovely. I like to use chestnuts to keep it festive.

We are having a mushroom and chesnut wellington. I've made this before and its lovely.http://www.veganvillage.co.uk/recipes/wellie.htm.
Make it the day before and keep it in the fridge then you just have the veg to sort out on Xmas day.

We've had a pithiver type thing before which was good. Might even be the linked one! If you look on the Vegetarian society website, they tend to do a Christmas theme each year. We had the Moroccan pie for a few years in a row because it was so good. Last year we had Christmas tree shaped pizzas!

Thanks for all the ideas. I am salivating and might just ditch meat altogether this year! I have never been on the Waitrose site before, it has some lovely recipes which are very tempting
