Supermarket giant Morrisons has unveiled its new plant-based Christmas range for 2019. 

The UK retailer has revamped its vegan pigs in blankets from last year - which now feature sausage made from jackfruit and chickpeas, wrapped in a 'streaky pastry' instead of bacon. 

Morrisons has also released Katsu Croquettes, which are filled with sweet potato, carrot, red pepper, and curry sauce - as well as the 'Best Vegetable Layered Tart' - featuring spiced beetroot, butternut squash, spinach, cranberry, and onion chutney.

The tart, topped with roasted chestnuts, is available from the frozen aisle and features a dairy-free puff pastry.

Earlier this month, supermarket chain Sainsbury's also announced its new 'Food to Order' Christmas range

The Christmas centerpiece is the Vegan No Beef Wellington, which according to the retailer, is 'a parcel any vegan would be glad to receive this Christmas'. 

"Inside, you'll find a succulent mushroom, parsnip and seitan loaf layered with tender spinach leaf and a rich mushroom, porcini and port wine duxelles," says the product's description.

Other plant-based dishes include a Three Nut & Mushroom Roast with Redcurrant & Port Gravy, a Jewelled Root Vegetable Wreath, and a Vegan Lentil, Cranberry and Almond Melt in the Middle Pudding.
