Marks & Spencer Launches Vegan ‘Turkey Roast’ For Christmas


1 Minutes Read

Marks & Spencer has added a range of meaty vegan Christmas dishes to its plant-based Plant Kitchen line.

The new offerings include starters and sides, mains, and sweet options.

No turkey roast

The centerpiece of the Plant Kitchen Christmas line-up is the ‘No Turkey’ roast with cranberry and chestnut stuffing, accompanied by cocktail sausages and gravy.

Alternative mains include the Root Vegetable Tarte Tatin or the Butternut, Almond & Pecan Nut Roast, featuring bulgur wheat, cannellini beans, roasted butternut squash, and dried apricots with a red wine and thyme gravy.

Sides, starters, and desserts

To accompany the mains, M&S has created its own vegan No Pork Pigs in Blankets. It is also offering bao buns stuffed with mushroom, soy and hoisin. 

The store’s pudding option is the Dark Chocolate and Cherry Dessert – chocolate ganache topped with a morello cherry compote.

In addition, M&S has created vegan salted caramel truffles, featuring pink Himalayan salted caramel in a soy-based dark chocolate shell, dusted with cocoa powder.

‘Ultimate Christmas meal’

“M&S is this year launching its first full vegan Christmas dinner with a mouth-watering plant protein centerpiece, vegetables, roast potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and even no pigs in duvets (plant protein pigs in blankets),” said the outlet.

“Having listened to the feedback of over 80,000 customers, M&S has created the ULTIMATE range designed to help you and your families enjoy Christmas by taking out some of the most angst-inducing elements of Christmas entertaining.”
