The Plant Kitchen line launched with mains including; a burger which took 12 months to develop; BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Pizza; No Pork Sausages, Cauliflower Popcorn; and Rainbow Veg Sushi Wrap among other items. It also offers sides including Vegan Coleslaw and Potato Salad.
Since the initial launch, multiple products have been added to the line, including The No Chicken Caesar Salad – which features mixed salad leaves, avocado slices, garlic and herb croutons, and a Caesar-style dressing, with soy protein chunks, as well as The Hoisin No Duck Wrap, featuring hoisin sauce, with cucumber and spring onion, and roasted shredded soy protein, on a wrap.
‘Delicious vegan food’
“Some people think meat-free food is boring but that couldn’t be further from the truth, it’s experimental – and it’s delicious,” Claire Richardson, who developed the range alongside a team of food experts, said in a statement.
“We’ve created a collection that will appeal to everyone – whether you’re a longstanding vegan, want to lead a more flexitarian lifestyle or you love meat but think cauliflower popcorn sounds amazing. It’s all about delicious tasting food first – and plant-based second.”
Marks & Spencer joins a host of UK outlets which have added vegan options to their offerings, including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Iceland, and Morrisons.
