Vegan “Bacalhau com Natas” (Codfish with Cream) – Patrícia Is Cooking

As the Portuguese tradition dictate, each region will have their own Christmas dinner foods. From North to South, some families choose Octopus or Turkey, but most families sit together to eat Codfish. Luckily, many families have started to cut down (or cut all together) animals from their Christmas food and the vegan “Bacalhau com Natas” from Patrícia Is Cooking will make you fall in love with a new vegan Christmas tradition. Best of all – it takes less than one hour to prepare and it’s delicious!

Baked and Stuffed Apple (Portuguese) – Made by Choice

If you were born and/ or raised in Portugal, you can probably remember the heartwarming recipe your grandmother, mother or aunt used to make on a cold, winter day. Cut a few apples in quarters, add some sugar and water and bake them in the oven until they’re glazing. One of the cheapest, quickest and tasty last minute desserts. The wonderful team behind Made by Choices created a mouth-watering recipe for Christmas that will leave vegans and family wondering down memory lane and wanting for more.
