New Vegan Food at Marks and Spencer
Just in time for Veganuary’s start saw the launch of a whole new meat-free range in Marks and Spencer stores across the country with a dedicated cabinet for their 100% plant-based ‘Plant Kitchen‘ products. As well as the popular No Beef Burgers, Marks and Spencer have a much wider variety of products not really seen in other stores before.
The new collection, costing from £1.50 upwards includes a vast array of over 60 ready meals, snacks, as well as ingredients to make a fresh vegan dish of your own.
The Plant Kitchen collection are also the first M&S options to use recycled trays.
Their first-to-the-market vegan sourdough pizza has a hand-stretched base topped with smooth house tomato sauce and dairy-free cheese. It was a winner for us.
Cauliflower Popcorn are coated in a fluffy batter that’s crisp on the outside, while the cauliflower stays tender within. Bake in the oven until golden, then serve with the sweet-and-spicy Buffalo dip. Everyone seems to love it.
The Lasagne was a success with our non-vegan son on account of its meaty soya ragu.
A hearty, coconut cream-enriched mushroom stew paired with lightly spiced roasted cauliflower rice, this is the ultimate comfort food. I had this for lunch and my colleagues said it looked delicious.
We finally have vegan coleslaw in a supermarket and it’s amazing. Non-vegans can’t tell the difference! This retails at £1.50 and would like to see M&S sell a larger pot because of how tasty it is! There is also a Potato Salad but this had sold out when we got there.
This vegan take on the meaty classic sausage is made with soya that’s seasoned with sea salt and cracked black pepper. It’s also low in calories and high in protein.
Soya mince and vegetable suet keep this meat-free patty deliciously moist. Serve in a toasted burger bun with tomato relish, mustard, sliced beef tomato and red onion.
This grain salad will be a good ‘grab and go’ lunch.
These hearty, Mexican-inspired vegan burgers are flavoured with coriander, cumin, smoky paprika, lemon and garlic. Serve with sliced red onions and a squeeze of hot sauce, if you like.
People have been singing the praises of these Chic’n Nuggets. They reminded us of the ones on sale at Waitrose from The Vegetarian Butcher.
The jury’s out on these No Meatballs because of how fond we are of the Iceland version.
Marinated, roasted aubergines in a fiery harissa sauce with three types of nourishing grains and a creamy cannellini dressing. This is good for those trying to eat more whole foods this New Year.
This Cashew Mac has been popular on social media but we haven’t managed to get our hands on it yet. I just hope it has more flavour than Tesco’s Macaroni Cheese ready meal. M&S also have a vegan Macaroni Cheese as part of the Plant Kitchen range, too.
The Dirty Fries are topped with tomato sauce and bechamel sauce, as well as the vegan cheese alternative M&S are using. I wonder how long it will be before they release this cheese?
