My 30 favorite Christmas recipes

The Wellcuisine Christmas Compilation

Christmas time is inevitably the time of indulgence. And for me this phase starts with thinking about what we will cook and eat over the holidays. So this week I went through all of my blog recipes and picked out the dishes that fit particularly well into the next 2 weeks. After all, Christmas does not only consist of Christmas Eve, but also of late lunches on the holidays, of lazy mornings between the years when we have a lot of time for breakfast, and of course the sweet gingerbread in between when we are sitting on the sofa and are watching old Christmas movies. So here is the “compilation” of my best recipes for your beautiful, healthy and sensual Christmas season. And if you want to be inspired by my last and penultimate Wellcuisine Christmas menu, then click here and here.

Breakfast

Gingerbread Granola

This gingerbread granola is perfect for a long breakfast during the holidays or as a last-minute gift.

Oat waffles

I can’t live without oat waffles (I often make them with buckwheat instead of oatmeal) anyway, and certainly not during the Christmas season. They taste best with homemade orange jam (see next recipe).

Orange jam

I’m actually not a big fan of jam, but I can’t get enough of this orange jam with its sweet and bitter taste. I like it best with homemade waffles.

Latte Macchiato Porridge

If we’ve eaten a lot on the previous evening, then I like a light, warming breakfast like this the next morning.

Pink hummus

This pink hummus with beetroot cannot be beat in terms of color and is therefore also pretty festive.

Onion and rosemary focaccia

Beetroot tartare

Soups

Carrot soup with sesame cream

This soup is well-being on a spoon. If you serve it as a starter, keep the portions small, because this soup will fill you up!

Carrot and sweet potato soup with harissa oil

Another orange colored soup and one of my favorite soup recipes, because the homemade harissa oil makes it particularly tasty.

Desserts and sweets

Sunflower brownies

These brownies taste best fresh out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I’ll be serving them for dessert on Christmas Eve this year.

Beverages

Mulled Wine

Homemade mulled wine really has nothing to do with the cheap sweet drink from the Christmas market. Take a decent red wine, a few good spices and apple juice and you have a wonderful Christmas drink.

The little, fine sister of regular mulled wine.
