UK department store Marks & Spencer (M&S) is offering a dine-in vegan Mother’s Day meal at an affordable cost of £20 for a family of four.
Available from March 23-27, the meal will feature a roast, three sides, and a dessert. The roast is made from pea protein with a sage, mushroom, and parsley stuffing.
While there are only two vegan sides on the menu — roast potatoes and braised red cabbage with Bramley apple — plant-based eaters can double up on one of these options to get three servings. The dessert is a raspberry flavour jelly terrine containing fresh berries.
Plant-based at M&S
In recent years, M&S Food has been a frontrunner in offering vegan and plant-based options. The chain’s Plant Kitchen range, launched in 2020, now has hundreds of products such as ToFish & Chips, No Chicken Kiev, and No Tuna & Sweetcorn Sandwich.
“With 1 in 4 M&S customers choosing a more flexitarian diet, this is a super exciting trend that’s showing absolutely no signs of slowing down. We’re expecting to see an even bigger leap forward in new products suitable for vegans, with a diversification in plant proteins and experimentation in flavours,” said April Preston, Director of Product Development at M&S.
