Major supermarket chain Morrisons launches “Veggies in Blankets” as an alternative to Christmas appetizer “pigs in blankets” for the holidays.
The supermarket’s vegan sausages are made from a blend of tomato, mushroom, potato, and basil wrapped in a slice of aubergine.
“Pigs in Blankets are arguably the best part of Christmas dinner,” Simon Whittle, Morrisons’ party food expert, told Metro UK.
The vegan sausages are part of Morrisons’ 3 for £6 Christmas range that also features vegan sweet potato stacks and vegan tempura nests.
The supermarket also recently released a new vegan range “V Taste” featuring teriyaki mushroom noodles, mushroom bologna, sweet potato nut cutlets, butternut squash and chickpea curry, 3 bean chili non-carne, and katsu curry melts in order to cater to Morrisons’ vegan consumers.
“We’ve listened to customers who are looking for more plant-based options over the festive period and created a vegan version,” says Whittle.
The Veggies in Blankets are sold in packs of 10 and are now available in all Morrisons stores for £2.50.
