Leading UK supermarket chain Morrisons is offering a vegan version of Christmas pigs-in-blankets\u00a0this year with its Veggies in Blankets. The product features a\u00a0"blend of tomato, potato, mushroom and basil"\u00a0wrapped in aubergine, and offer a more sustainable and healthy alternative to pigs-in-blankets. Tesco\u00a0recently found that Brits prefer Brussels sprouts to the\u00a0traditional,\u00a0red meat Christmas food which involves pork sausages wrapped in a layer of bacon, in line with\u00a0growing demand for plant-based festive food. In light of this, Morrisons' Veggies in Blankets are likely to be popular. The Veggies in Blankets are part of the chain's affordable new V Taste range. The own-brand ready meal collection also features meals including a\u00a0Mushroom Bolognese, 3 Bean Chili Non-Carne, and\u00a0Teriyaki Mushroom Noodles, as well as vegan cheeses and desserts.
