Supermarket giant ASDA has revealed some of the festive vegan food it will be releasing this Christmas.

Its plant-based offerings will include a vegan Wellington for mains, featuring a chickpea, cranberry, apricot and festive spices stuffing, and topped with a cranberry sauce.

Sides will include pork cocktail sausages and cranberry & apple stuffing balls. It is also launching a special Christmas sweet – a chocolate swirl dessert, shaped like a bundt cake, featuring swirls filled with vegan caramel sauce and dairy-free chocolate mousse, finished with gold luster.

‘Delicious flavor and great value’

“For me, this is the most exciting time of the year, unveiling the fabulous food and drink combinations we’ve been working hard on for the festive season,” Linsey Taylor, Senior Director of New Product Development, said, Vegan Food & Living Reports.

“There’s something special about families coming together to celebrate the big day and it’s our job to ensure there’s delicious food for everyone to enjoy, and plenty of options for all involved.

“This year, we’ve really considered customer feedback from 2018 – creating products based on needs and desires for certain food and drink, particularly for those looking for more inclusive options but still seeking delicious flavor and great value.”
