Going vegan does not have to mean missing out on some of your favourite Christmas treats.
Here’s a selection of some of our favourite vegan alternatives to your Christmas essentials.
Tofurky roast with wild rice stuffing
Turkey is a Christmas dinner staple, and Tofurky have created the perfect vegan alternative!
Their Tofurky roast is a blend of wheat and tofu, filled with wild rice and breadcrumb stuffing. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it – it’s actually pretty good!
Tofurky also have vegan sausages and chicken, so definitely worth having a browse if you’re in the market for tasty meat alternatives.
Pigs in blankets
Vegan pigs in blankets might be hard to come by, but do not despair. Why not just make your own?
There are loads of vegan bacon alternatives out there, from Tofurky smoky maple bacon to Quorn deli bacon flavoured rashers.
Pick up a pack and wrap up your favourite vegan sausages (we would recommend Linda McCartney’s red onion and rosemary sausages) and voilà.
Pigs in blankets might not be off the cards after all.
It just wouldn’t be Christmas without a Christmas pudding, and Morrisons have the perfect vegan option!
This ‘accidentally vegan’ rich fruit Christmas pudding is ideal for your post-dinner treat – plus it’s super affordable (everyone’s a winner).
There are so many vegan options available that you really don’t have to miss out on anything this Christmas, even the cheese board!
Brands such as Violife and Sheese have created plant-based cheddar alternatives that aren’t far off the real deal (especially if you melt them!).
Fancy something a little different to cheddar?
Then give The Vegan Kind MozzaRisella a go. This rice-based alternative is definitely best melted; however, does have a mild mozzarella taste just chopped into a salad or with tomatoes.
After dinner tipple
Dinner has been eaten, presents have been opened, and the whole family are sat around the TV watching ‘Singing in the Rain’.
This can only mean one thing – it’s time for the after-dinner tipple.
And you can’t be having a Baileys without some chocolate truffles, right?
Lindt chocolate truffles are a Christmas staple but, sadly, they’re not vegan. Never fear, both Tesco and Morrisons have some great substitutes in their free from range so you can still enjoy a chocolate... or 7.
Christmas day is over, and you’re on the hunt for a snack before bed (because you haven’t eaten and drank enough throughout the day already, right?). The perfect Christmas Day supper? A mince pie of course.
Favorina mine pies are a great option for vegans. Chuck one in the microwave with some vegan cream and you've got yourself an indulgent way to end the day.
