UK supermarket Asda has got us counting down the days to Christmas with its vegan festive range for 2021.
Asda’s vegan Christmas range features festive vegan classics plus some new plant-based showstoppers!
Highlights from the supermarket’s vegan Christmas range include Extra Special Vegan ‘Crab’ Croquettes with Red Pepper and Roasted Garlic Dip and a Plant-Based Christmas Cheeseboard.
Nothing gives us that Christmas feeling like seeing a table filled with delicious vegan canapés and nibbles.
Impress your guests with Asda’s festive Plant-Based Christmas Cheeseboard.
There is something for everyone, with Asda’s award-winning cheddar alternative, alongside a delicious blue cheese alternative, jalapeno & chilli cheddar, and Wensleydale & cranberry.
Additionally, vegans won’t miss out on the festive fun this year with the new ‘No-Turkey’ Wrap.
The tortilla wrap is generously filled with soya-based “No-Turkey” pieces, roasted carrots and parsnips, braised red cabbage, vegan sage and onion mayonnaise, spiced fruit chutney, spinach and fried onions. What more could you ask for?
Christmas parties will be an instant hit thanks to Asda’s Extra Special Vegan Crab Croquettes with Red Pepper & Roasted Garlic Purée.
These unmissable Vegan Crab Croquettes are packed with flavour which makes them the perfect appetisers to suit everyone at the dinner table.
Furthermore, you can finish off your festive tables or plates with Asda’s Vegan Accompaniment Selection.
Enjoy a selection of classic Christmas accompaniments, perfect for any vegan feast, includes 6 vegan cranberry & chestnut stuffing balls, 6 vegan red onion cocktail sausages & 6 vegan pigs in blankets.
Vegan Christmas centrepiece
Nothing gives us that festive feeling quite like planning the menu for the big day.
While the sides and trimmings are equally as important, the vegan Christmas centrepiece has to be perfect!
Take the stress out of Christmas and tuck into Asda’s Extra Special Beefless Wellington.
This vegan version of a festive classic is ideal for sharing with vegan guests as a showstopping centrepiece.
A soya-based “beef” filling is layered with a topping of mushroom duxelles and hand wrapped in vegan puff pastry. Simply perfect!
Alternatively, Asda’s Plant-Based Vegan Cranberry & Chestnut Wreath is almost too beautiful to eat, but too tempting not to.
With mushrooms, chestnut and sweet cranberry wrapped into a crispy puff pastry, this delicious dish will be the most delicious addition to the festive decorations this year.
In addition, this Extra Special Vegan Roasted Root Vegetable Tart will sit proudly at the head of the Christmas table.
With a crisp shortcrust pastry case with poppy seeds and thyme, a layer of butterbean and spinach sauce, topped with parsnips, beetroot and chantenay carrots, it’s finished with herby breadcrumbs.
Vegan festive sweet
For us, Christmas isn’t Christmas without vegan chocolate!
Why not indulge in something a bit special this year, like Asda’s Free From Extra Special Chocolate & Blood Orange Cookies?
These gluten, milk and egg-free oat cookies are prepared using tangy Brazilian orange oil and a blood orange flavouring.
If that wasn’t enough, they are enrobed in a smooth coating of Belgian dark chocolate and Vegan Society Approved.
“There really is something special for everyone to enjoy”
Following the release of Asda’s vegan Christmas range, Sam Dickson, Vice President, Asda Own Brand at Asda shared: “This Christmas we know our customers are looking to create something truly magical for their loved ones.
“We really do believe we have something for everyone and every occasion this Christmas.”
In addition, Linsey Taylor, Senior Director of New Product Development at Asda added: “We’re proud of every product in this year’s range and think there really is something special for everyone to enjoy with their nearest and dearest this Christmas at Asda.”
