M&S is doing Veganuary. The retailer is launching more than 100 new vegan products including food to go, snacks, drinks and ready meals in stores on 2 January.
The launch includes new additions to its popular Plant Kitchen range and a new lineup of healthy veg pots for consumers looking for a plant-based lunch. Here’s our pick
Plant Kitchen Tofish & Chips
Capturing the growing demand for plant-based comfort food, these battered tofu goujons are served alongside chips and a vegan tartare sauce.
Healthy veg pots
This new pot range is an “incredibly easy way of increasing your 5 a day,” according to M&S, with some variants packing in three portions of fruit & veg. The pots are available in sharing and individual portions, and the range includes:
The Roasted One: garlic roasted veg and rice with a rosemary and tomato sauce
The Bang Bang One: an aromatic vegetable curry with a spicy coconut sauce
The Fiery One: a spiced vegetable and cauliflower couscous with a harissa sauce
