While we've no problem with this perennial festive favourite, there's no reason it needs to be the only option for vegetarians at Christmas.

With global cuisine offering all manner of fresh, seasonal and unusual flavours, the culinary world is simply bursting with tasty and creative meat-free meal ideas.

So to help spice up your veggie Christmas dinner, we’ve rounded up a selection of delicious recipes, from zesty salads and soups to hearty mains.
