Vegan Christmas Dinner
For Christmas 2021, Sainsbury’s claims a first with its Plant Pioneers No Gammon with Maple Glaze (£5.50).
This wheat and pea protein joint is smothered in a sticky maple glaze for a glossy finish and will be available from the 8th December.
Also available in-store and online from the 8th December is the Plant Pioneers No Turkey Crown (£5.75).
The mushroom and pea protein turkey-style roast is filled with stuffing and comes with a sage and onion vegan melt for even more flavour.
If you want to avoid disappointment, it’s also available to pre-order for pre-Christmas collection now.
Sainsbury’s offers another choice for plant-based turkey lovers this year in the Plant Pioneers No Turkey Parcels (£6.00).
These sage & onion stuffed parcels are individually portioned and wrapped in smoked bacon-style rashers.
They’re available through Sainsbury’s Christmas Food to Order service.
For something a little different, try Sainsbury’s new Plant Pioneers No Salmon En Croûte (£5.50).
Made from Sainsbury’s jackfruit, soya, and oyster mushroom-based salmon-style fillets, these puff pastry parcels are made extra decadent with a garlic and dill white sauce.
Available from 8th December, or to order ahead now.
The Taste The Difference Festive Miso-Stuffed Butternut Squash (£5.50) is a sweeter option for Christmas dinner.
Featuring a roasted butternut squash stuffed with miso-marinated mushrooms, kale, chestnuts, and a juicy cranberry stuffing, this roast is sure to be a winner with those who prefer a veg-based main course.
Grab it in-store and online from 13th December.
Another non-meaty option is the Taste The Difference Nut Roast with a Tangy Spiced Orange & Cranberry Glaze (£5.50).
This nut roast is loaded with mushrooms, spinach and squash and topped with pistachios, almonds, and tangy whole cranberries.
It comes with a spiced orange and cranberry glaze to pour over and is available through Sainsbury’s Food to order service.
To accompany your main course, pick up the Plant Pioneers Vegan Trimmings Selection (£5.50).
Available only through the Food to Order service, this selection contains 12 mushroom stuffing balls, lightly seasoned with sage, and cracked black pepper, and vegan mushroom mini sausages wrapped in smoked ‘bacon’ rashers.
If you like to pull out all the stops for your Christmas dinner, Sainsbury’s have made your cheese course easier by offering the Plant Pioneers Cheese Selection (£4.50).
The vegan cheeseboard selection features four tasty cheeses: Caramelised onion cheddar-style, traditional cheddar-style, Wensleydale-inspired with cranberries, and plant-based blue. Available from 1st December.
For a decadent dessert, there’s the Plant Pioneers Chocolate & Salted Caramel Star (£8.00).
