Christmas comes early as Tesco unveils its festive vegan Christmas range complete with vegan maple gammon joint and raspberry layered dessert.
A vegan Christmas once meant everything you ate needed to be homemade. As much as we love spending time in the kitchen during the holidays, we always get excited to see supermarkets announce their festive Vegan products.
Tesco has kicked things off early this year as it unveils its plant-based Christmas range featuring 12 show-stopping dishes.
According to the supermarket, 41% of hosts catered for guests with dietary requirements last Christmas. As more people decide to go vegan, Tesco has developed its vegan Christmas range to ensure everyone is catered for during the festive season.
