Nestlé is expanding its Garden Gourmet range of veggie meat alternatives with three new vegan products.

The line, which is aimed at meat reducers and flexitarians as well as vegetarians and vegans, now boasts three new plant-based products – Chicken Style Pieces, Chicken Style Breaded Mini Fillets, and Chicken Style Chargrilled Bites.

According to Nestlé, its ready-to-eat Chicken Style Chargrilled Bites feature a ‘lightly smoky flavour’ which suits salads and sandwiches, while the Chicken Style Pieces work well in vegan recipes like curry recipes, stir-fries and pasta dishes.

Meanwhile, the Chicken Style Breaded Mini Fillets, which offer a ‘succulent chicken-like texture lightly coated with panko-style breadcrumbs’ can be enjoyed in a range of dishes including wraps, salad recipes, and served alongside rice and veggies.

“We are constantly striving to provide our fans with delicious vegan and vegetarian alternatives and these products are great for food lovers looking for more meat-free poultry options and those who want to include more vegan and vegetarian food at lunchtime.”

Shoppers can find the new products at Asda, Sainsbury’s, and Morrisons stores, alongside its existing items including the Sensational Burger and Sensational Sausage.
