Not got the Christmas menu sorted yet? Go plant-based with these festive vegan dishes

Thinking of making your Christmas dinner more ethical this year?

Or maybe you’re catering for a vegan guest?

There are plenty of delicious (and festive) plant-based dishes on offer, saving you the faff of making anything yourself.

Sainsbury’s, Aldi, M&S and more have added vegan delights to their festive ranges, and some of them are real showstoppers.

Here are our top vegan dishes for Christmas dinner:

So what makes a salmon alternative?
