Dazzle your dinner guests with the ultimate plant-based Christmas menu
With so many delectable plant-based goodies on offer, Tesco can help ensure your big day feast has something for everyone
The festive season is the perfect time to treat yourself to the finer things in life. Of course, between the slithers of succulent roast turkey and heavenly spoonfuls of Christmas pudding, you may find yourself wanting to enjoy something a little lighter, or perhaps you unexpectedly have a few more vegan mouths to feed.
Whatever your reason for wanting less meat on the dinner table, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for at Tesco. Home to an array of appetising plant-based ranges, including Plant Chef and Wicked Kitchen, you’ll discover plenty of meat-free marvels that are great for this time of year, including showstopping centrepieces and even alternatives for your favourite trimmings – here’s looking at you Meat-Free Bangers in Blankets.
So, whatever Christmas throws at you, you’ll find a helping hand in Tesco. After all, even Santa has his elves!
Talk ‘turkey’ to me
Few festive moments live up to the joy of seeing your delicious festive feast placed on the dinner table. It really does make all those hours spent cooking up a storm in the kitchen worthwhile. And while you may have mastered the art of prepping your bird or perfecting your crispy, duck-fat potatoes, cooking plant-based dishes, particularly centrepieces, can sometimes feel a little daunting. Cue the fabulous Wicked Kitchen No-Turkey Roast Crown.
Not only will this meat alternative look the part on your table, but it even boasts the same tender, juicy succulence of your usual turkey. Made from savoury wheat protein that offers a similar meaty texture, it’s topped with a dreamy coconut melt and sage and onion stuffing, and it carves just like a real bird. Wicked Kitchen’s Wicked Wellington, is another plant-based winner thanks to its tantalising combination of seasoned flaky pastry (made from wheat and soya) and roasted garlic herb mushroom duxelles.
All the trimmings
From honey-roasted carrots and parsnips to the fluffiest roast potatoes, you’ll likely be serving up an array of tantalising veggie side dishes for your guests. Of course, Christmas dinner just wouldn’t be the same without tasty pigs in blankets to go alongside it – and now Tesco has made it possible for your vegetarian guests to indulge in them too with its Tesco Meat-Free Bangers in Blankets. These plant-based delights will make any vegetarian or vegan guests feel like they’re getting the entire Christmas dinner package – and can even be popped into a bun for a fun festive canapé.
The Tesco Finest Stuffed Half Butternut Squash is another great side dish option, as deliciously sweet butternut squash is stuffed with a tangy beetroot and apple mix, then topped with crunchy pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Packed with beautiful flavours and textures, it would even work well as a vegan main – or a starter, for that matter.
