Whole Foods Market has added a raft of branded, vegan-friendly meat alternatives, cooking sauces, cheeses and treats to its range this Veganuary. Here’s our pick of the range
Seggiano Raw Basil Pesto
Made with fresh Ligurian basil, this pesto is raw, unpasteurised and parmesan-free. The sauce is made in Italy, where the hand-picked basil leaves are washed, chopped and preserved in olive oil within hours of being harvested.
Clear Spot Organic Tofu Sea Cakes
These patties are made with smoked tofu and blended with crispy seaweed. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans, the fishcake alternatives are also GM, dairy, gluten and yeast-free.
Nojo Teriyaki Sauce
From trendy London brand Nojo, this teriyaki sauce can be used as a marinade, cooking sauce or blended into a dressing. The brand says this sauce gets a ”sweet yet piquant taste” from the togarashi spice and is great in a stir-fry.
Borna Lightly Sweetened Pistachio Drink
The latest nut to star in a milk alternative, this drink from Borna is made with premium pistachios, which give it an “amazingly creamy and rich aftertaste”, according to the brand.
New Roots Organic Free-The-Goat Nature Ricotta
Made from curdled cashew milk, this “light and airy” vegan cheese can be eaten as it is or used as a dairy-free alternative to ricotta for cheese-heavy dishes like pizza and lasagne.
Mummy Meagz Original Rocky Road Cake Bar
Made with vegan marshmallows, this indulgent snack bar is filled with biscuit pieces and coated in Belgian dark chocolate.
Upton’s Natural Jackfruit
Available in Bar-B-Que, Thai Curry, and unseasoned Original varieties, this meat alternative is free from cholesterol, gluten, soy, oil, GMOs and artificial flavours. It makes a great sandwich topped with coleslaw, says Upton’s.
Lazy Day Foods Lazy Millionaire’s Shortbread
For Veganuary participants who are also dodging gluten, this Millionaire’s Shortbread from Scottish bakery Lazy Day should fill a spot. They’re made with dairy-free caramel, a shortbread biscuit base and a Belgian chocolate topping.
