Festive sides: Asparagus spears with vegan parmesan, mint pesto, crushed almonds and dried cranberries.

Next up on my week of festive sides are my beloved asparagus spears.


  1. Grill asparagus in lemon and garlic
  2. Plate up and top with choice of nuts and fruit. (Hazelnuts are great here too.)
  3. Add a few shavings of vegan parmesan and finish with some delicious mint pesto. For the pesto simply blitz mint, olive oil, lemon, sunflower seeds, garlic, salt and pep.

Another easy breezy sharing side to add to your growing vegan Christmas recipe list.
