Christmas is less than a month away and the accidentally Vegan Christmas foods* are slowly appearing. Here I share with you 10 vegan-friendly products that just so happen to be suitable for us plant-based foodies to eat and share with our friends and family.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without mince pies would it? Every year it is a struggle to find milk-free mince pies thankfully Waitrose Essential 6 Shortcrust Mince Pies are accidentally vegan! Alongside Waitrose, Co-op’s Puff Pastry Mince Pies in the bakery section and ASDA Mince Pies are too.
If you love Christmas pudding, Waitrose offer two accidentally vegan options for you to try. The first being from the Essentials range flavoured with Cider & Sherry and the second a Duchy Originals Organic variety made with Cognac and vine fruits.
If you love the cake-like fruity bread get your fix with Kuchenmeister luxury Marzipan Stollen. This is available in Iceland, some Tesco stores as well as online.
