Eggnog is the official beverage of December. It’s rare to encounter it any other time, and truly is Christmas spirit in a cup. We were so pleased when we whipped up this vegan eggnog mixture and created an egg-free version to sip with some spiced rum or on its own. Extra nutmeg always welcome!

This delectable dish of black or wild rice, corn, and cranberries is a festive eyeful, but it’s too good to save for only special occasions, and too simple not to make for everyday meals. It makes a gorgeous holiday side dish, or, stuffed into small squashes, a great vegan main dish. Recipe from Vegan Holiday Kitchen; photo by Susan Voisin, FatFree Vegan Kitchen.
