Vegan Christmas options from independent companies

Posted on the 27th November 2020

Not only have vegan options increased in supermarkets this Christmas, many independent companies – including fully vegan ones – have a great selection of plant-based food!

Rudy’s Vegan Butcher – Christmas “Meat” Feast

Rudy’s Vegan Butcher is the UK’s first permanent vegan butcher shop, located in Islington. This amazing concept shows that you can have all of the foods you currently eat, without needing to harm animals. One option available at Rudy’s is their Turk’y Roll – a vegan turkey alternative stuffed with amazing herby vegan soysage stuffing.

For Christmas this year, Rudy’s has put together a vegan Christmas “Meat” Feast which features a Christmas Turk’y Roll, which is stuffed with cranberry and hazelnut stuffing, smothered in a garlic, rosemary and thyme gravy. With this, the Feast includes Meatloaf en Croute, Christmas ham, Pastrami, Meatballs, Ready-to-roast potatoes, carrots and parsnips, Ready-to-roast Brussel sprouts with baycon bits and three types of puffed water lily seeds.

As well this, you can find a bunch of other delights on their website for order, including vegan bacon, vegan black pudding and more!

Vegan Business Support Hamper

All small businesses have taken a bit of a battering this year, so it is very important to support small independent retailers. The Vegan Business Support Box is organised by vegan burger restaurant, Mooshies, and features products from some of the best London-based vegan eateries and companies.

In the box you’ll find delicious treats, such as Jackfruit Wings by Biff’s, vegan chocolates by Dark Sugars, vegan pesto by Pickywops and kimchi by Eat Chay…. Plus, more!

This will make a great gift for a vegan loved one (or why not treat yourself?), whilst also supporting small vegan companies.
