High street retailer Marks & Spencer has added a selection of tempting new vegan products to its Plant Kitchen range, including churros, vegan mozzarella sticks, mac & cheese bites, sausage rolls and desserts!
High street retailer Marks & Spencer recently addressed the ever-growing demand for plant-based and meat-free options from customers with the launch of Plant Kitchen – a brand-new collection of over 60 meals, snacks and ingredients.
The launch was a huge success and the company has seen the products ‘flying off the shelves’ and so has added yet more exciting and tempting products to its plant-based range, including dairy-free mozzarella sticks and a selection of sweet treats.
Following on from the launch of UK supermarket Morrisons V Taste No-Moozarella Sticks, Marks & Spencer has released its own version of the popular dish – Not-Zzarella Sticks (£3.20).
The tempting cheesy sticks are filled with a mozzarella-style vegan cheese in a crispy breadcrumb coating and come served with a tomato and herb dip for dunking the sticks in.
Fans of mac and cheese will be tempted to try the new Mac Bites in Marks & Spencer’s plant-based range. This innovative new product features macaroni pasta smothered in a vegan cheese sauce coated in crisp herby breadcrumbs and is perfect for snacking on when you need your cheese fix.
Not to be outdone by Tesco and Waitrose who recently launched vegan sausage rolls following the hype surrounding Gregg’s vegan offering, Marks & Spencer has also added its own plant-based version.
The No Pork Sausage Rolls are filled with a deliciously seasoned minced soy filling wrapped in flaky puff pastry and would make a great addition to your picnic basket this summer.
Looking for a quick and easy dinner? Try the new Indian Spiced Tofu Stir Fry (£2.75) which is a delicious lunch or dinner and features Indian spiced tofu chunks with turmeric chickpeas, vegetable stir fry and creamy masala sauce.
There’s also a Sri Lankan Style Cashew Nut Curry (£3.50) with soft sweet potatoes and spinach served with rice, quinoa and chickpeas.
Dinner wouldn’t be complete with something sweet to finish the meal if you ask us! And if you enjoy dessert as much as we do you’ll be pleased to know the retailer has launched some mouth-watering new vegan desserts into the range.
Joining the range is a deep-fried dessert that is hard to resist- vegan churros (£4)! The churros come complete with a cinnamon sugar sprinkle to add a pop of flavour to the churros and a rich dark chocolate chip that’s perfect for dipping!
For those who prefer a fresh and fruity dessert, you can now find a Mango, Passion Fruit & Coconut Pot (£1.75) which is a totally tropical deliciously smooth coconut panna cotta, topped with mango & passion fruit compote.
Also joining the range is Chocolate Mousse Pots (£1.75) – a creamy Belgian chocolate mousse topped with a rich chocolate sauce and hand finished with crunchy cocoa nibs.
Another new product joining the range is a Raspberry Jelly Terrine that is completely free from gelatine and makes for a very tasty summer pudding.
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, M&S Product Developer, Claire Richardson, said: “We were absolutely delighted by the response to our Plant Kitchen range when it launched back January – so much so, we set about immediately creating some exciting new products for customers to try. I’m really pleased we’re now able to offer customers some delicious desserts and I challenge anyone to try the Not’zzarella Sticks and be able to tell the difference…!”
The company recently expanded the range to include some grab-and-go options that are perfect for those looking for a quick and easy lunch. The new products included an innovative No Chicken Caesar Salad (£4) and a Hoisin No Duck Wrap (£3.50).
The new products are available in stores now as part of Marks & Spencer’s Plant Kitchen range. Whilst you’re in the store, don’t forget to pick up your copy of Vegan Food & Living magazine!
