Chestnut and butter bean wellington

Christmas is the perfect time to enjoy great food – whether you are treating yourself or sharing with friends, family or neighbours. Add a sprinkling of inspiration to your Christmas kitchen with eight delicious dishes from the Festive Flavours collection. Set the scene with a pea and spinach soup, Christmas galette or a zingy fruit and nut salad with chilli and lime. Then fill your plates with an indulgent cheesy lattice pie, a classic nut roast or a chestnut and butter bean Wellington. There’s even a smooth, rich Christmas gravy to make in advance. To round off your meal, delight in an individual fruity trifle with cashew cream. Festive Flavours - the Vegetarian Society’s Christmas recipe collection is available free of charge online at or by calling 0161 925 2000.
