Take the stress of our cooking this Christmas with Sainsbury’s food-to-order menu that includes a whole host of deliciously tempting vegan options.

Pig in blankets are a staple at Christmas, and keen to ensure that no one misses out on this traditional festive fare, the supermarket is offering a selection of 10 vibrant and peppery vegan mushroom sausages wrapped in vegan bacon (£5.50) as well as 12 mushroom stuffing balls with sage, lightly seasoned with cracked black pepper that are perfect for nibbling on at parties or as a side dish.

For the main event, tuck into the Taste the Difference Vegan No Beef Wellington (£7), a parcel that any vegan would be happy to receive featuring succulent mushroom, parsnip and seitan loaf layered with tender spinach leaf and a rich mushroom, porcini and port wine duxelles crisp and golden puff pastry.

Offering something a little bit different, the supermarket has also created a vegan lentil, cranberry and almond melt in the middle pudding (£8). Packed with lentils, onions, cranberries, apricots and almonds, the savoury pudding has a hidden centre filled with a vegan cheese sauce. Finish off by pouring over the deliciously sticky and sweet cranberry and redcurrant glaze for a true showstopper!

Who says wreaths are just for doors? Impress all of your guests with Sainsbury’s showstopping Jewelled Root Vegetable Wreath with mixed berry sauce (£7.50).

Studded with sweet cranberries, pomegranate seeds and crunchy pumpkin seeds on a wreath of chunky butternut squash, sweet potato and chestnut and finished with a delicious drizzle of the sweet berry glaze, this is as flavoursome as it is beautiful.
