As an annual tradition during Christmas season, Marks & Spencer (M&S) has announced the launch of its festive food range that includes some really delightful vegan additions to its snacks, mains, and desserts. The company is going to offer some delectable vegan options to customers who are looking forward to cruelty-free celebrations.
Veganism is growing rapidly in the West and M&S has expanded its range to include various vegan offerings to cater to the taste buds of such customers. M&S’s Plant Kitchen range of food items has been specially developed for vegans and for those looking at increasing the amount of plants they eat. One can choose from mini versions of bestselling no-chicken kiev, no-duck springs rolls with hoisin dip, mac and cheese bites, and no-chorizo pigs in duvets.
No-chicken kiev is made from soya protein, with a garlic filling and coated in crispy, golden breadcrumbs. In January, the shop revealed their first ever vegan Kiev, 40 years after launching the chicken Kiev in the UK.
The no-duck spring rolls are filled with shredded soya protein and vegetables in a sticky hoisin sauce.
This year, M&S is going to cut back on mock meats and will introduce more vegan mains made from nuts and vegetables to provide wholesome nutrition.
Some of its interesting offerings include:
Plant Kitchen Butternut, Almond & Pecan Nut Roast
A mix of sweet squash and roasted nuts, served with a red wine and thyme, this colourful, seasonal savoury roast has incredible depth of flavour. Perfect for a delicious, meat-free, festive lunch.
Plant Kitchen Vegan Festive Wreath
A Christmas centrepiece that tastes just as good as it looks. Rich with roasted mushrooms, chestnuts and pumpkin seeds, and topped with a cranberry and orange glaze.
Merry Christmas Giant Vegetable Roll
It is a flavour-packed vegan centrepiece, filled with tender veg and seeds, and encased in flaky puff pastry.
Plant Kitchen Chocolate Torte
With smooth dark chocolate ganache on a deliciously crunchy biscuit base, finished with a dusting of cocoa powder and snowflake decoration, this rich pudding is one for chocolate-lovers.
Besides this, M&S has a selection of traditional festive foods such as mince pies and Christmas pudding for vegans.
