Christmas recipies

I've probably mentioned before, I'm no cook.
Every year for the last 10 or more I've been lucky enough not to have to cook Christmas lunch, thanks to my brother and sister in law. However this year they are going away :-( so it's left to me to cook lunch for 6
Anyone got any tips to liven up my veg so I don't just boil the life out of it?
Love all veg, especially sprouts, red cabbage, leeks and parsnips.
What about stuffing recipies, and how to make gravy.
I know it's early yet but it will give me a chance to practice.
All tips gratefully received.

Re: Christmas recipies

Linsey says there is a good recipe for stuffing in the Aldi "favourite things" catalogue which we will probably have, but scaled down for the 2 of us, she also has a more Mediterranean recipe which she is pondering, I'm in charge of the wine and cider which is all brewed and ready to go.

ınstead of boılıng your veg get yourself a 3tıer electrıc steamer.You could also do roast veggıes ın your oven seasoned wıth herbs,or slıces of potato cooked ıın cream ın an oven dısh covered ın grated cheese and then browned under the grıll.Easy PARMESAN BISCUITS---1OOGRAMS EACH of parmesan,flour and butter---make ınto dough then refrıgerate for a whıle before cuttıng out bake for around 12 mıns--do not add any salt but you can add herbs or a bıt of spıce ıf you wısh ı prefer them plaın.If youve got a nıce bıt of lamb try leek puddıng wıth onıon sauce--recıpıes onlıne.

Re: Christmas recipies

Sue,

I made this last year and it was a big hit. I made it the day before and warmed it back up in the oven just before serving.

Traditional Braised Red Cabbage with Apples - Accompaniment - Recipes - from Delia Online


Parsnips, carrots and sprouts can all be oven roasted and I usually do cauliflower cheese just to add a twist.

Re: Christmas recipies

Charlotte, that sounds scrummy & one of my fav Christmas accompaniments, plus making it the day before eases the pressure on the day

Electric or basic 'Steamer' are both great, depends what suits

We've gone with a 'Crown' (I wasn't cooking ) for a few years now, very little waste & if you're not into/have time for, doing soups & stuff with the leftovers of a 'real bird'

Gravy - http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/traditionalgravy_1283

I use the vegetable 'water' for the 'stock' not a cube

Good Thread Sue, you must let us know how 'it goes' on the day, good luck

Happy Christmas x
