Since releasing its OMV! range in January 2023, ASDA has been increasing its vegan and plant-based products. In its vegan Christmas 2023 range, there’s a lot to choose from in the mains, sides, desserts, and sweet treats section this year. The UK supermarket chain is adding new vegan products for the festive period, including an entire plant-based turkey. And while the range centers ‘decadence’, the supermarket wants to keep the cost low. It’s frequently titled the lowest-priced traditional supermarket in the UK.
Asda vegan Christmas food 2023
As the cost of living crisis continues, Asda has stated that its aim is to make sure vegans (as well as those wanting to cut back on their meat and dairy intake) are catered for this Christmas. The supermarket broke its record last Christmas by releasing its largest ever vegan and Free From ranges, with 97 products. And this year, it continues to grow. From a plant-based chocolate advent calendar to the entire no turkey, here’s what you can find in stores and online.

Asda vegan mains
ASDA OMV! Whole No Turkey
This year, vegans (and those cutting down on animal products) can buy an entire whole no turkey from ASDA. Wheat, soya, and pea protein make up the ‘crown’. This will appear bright white on the inside and have a lean texture. The “legs” are produced from a similar base, but have a juicier texture, darker color, and more intense flavor profile.
OMV! Deliciously Vegan No Turkey & Trimmings For One
ASDA is packaging up an option to serve one. Vegan no turkey has a cranberry and orange stuffing. There are sides of vegan sage and onion stuffing balls as well as vegan pigs in blankets.
OMV! No Turkey Crown
Available now in Asda’s frozen section. Sage and onion stuffing run through the middle of this vegan ‘turkey crown’. It’s made from a blend of broad bean and pea protein.
OMV! Oyster & Porcini Mushroom Wellington
An additional main. Oyster and porcini mushrooms are bound with pea protein. Topped with a duxelle of minced mushrooms, onion, herbs, and black pepper. It’s then encased in a flaky puff pastry.
OMV! Festive Butternut & Chestnut Roast
Available from the frozen section. The mix is made with a blend of chestnuts, butternut squash, onions, kale and bulgur wheat. Sunflower and pumpkin seeds are also added with black garlic and seasoning. After cooking, the roast is then finished with a clementine and maple glaze.
