    I always struggle with deciding which vegetable dishes to prepare for Christmas. This list is a game-changer. The spiral vegetable tart and honey-glazed parsnips caught my eye. Any recommendations for which one to try first?

    1. Hi Jess, it’s wonderful that the list has made your decision easier! Both the spiral vegetable tart and honey-glazed parsnips are fantastic choices. If you’re looking to impress with a visually stunning dish, go for the spiral vegetable tart. If you want a sweet and savory side that’s a crowd-pleaser, start with the honey-glazed parsnips. You could even try both since they offer different flavors. Happy cooking and Merry Christmas!
