Vegan Christmas Pudding

Nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon… these are the aromas that remind us Christmas is right around the corner! Luckily for you, we’ve created a recipe for a vegan Christmas pudding that’ll have your whole house smelling like Christmas morning on any day.

On top of that, any family members or guests who don’t consume animal byproducts can enjoy in it too! We use nuts instead of cream and aquafaba instead of eggs. If you’re not familiar with aquafaba, it consists of the water in which legumes, such as chickpeas, have been cooked. Due to its ability to mimic the functional properties of egg whites it can be used as a direct replacement for eggs in some desserts, including this one!

Our vegan Christmas pudding requires no baking. We prepared it using the Zepter Masterpiece Cookware stacking system for steam cooking, which allows you to cook up to four dishes over one burner, saving you space, time and energy!
