The new dish is part of its festive offering for 2020, which features new impressive plant-based dishes for starters, mains, sides, and dessert.

Aldi’s Christmas 2020 menu

Aldi’s Plant Menu Vegan Turkey is a meat-free tasty alternative to turkey made from soya and stuffed with cranberry, red pepper, apricot and pumpkin seed, and coated in a barbecue flavour glaze.

The retailer’s starter and sides line-up includes: Vegetable Tempura Nests, Vegan Fusion Skewers, meatless pigs in blankets, No Duck Spring Roll as well as the new Vegan Thai Roses – red and yellow roses filled with a vegetable filling, curry paste, spices and wrapped in filo pastry.

In addition, the Specially Selected Vegan Stuffing Balls will be sold in three different flavors – cranberry, apricot & mandarin, and sage & onion to be enjoyed as a side to the vegan turkey meal.

For desserts, the budget store has the Specially Selected Chocolate Orange Vegan Melt in the Middle Pudding to get you drooling. It features a dark chocolate sponge and an orange flavoured compote centre finished with a dark chocolate sauce and gold shimmer.

Vegan options at Aldi

The supermarket chain has been dutifully expanding its vegan line. Last month, it also bagged vegan charity PETA’s ‘Top Grocer Award’ for stocking bountiful vegan options.

Declaring the winner , PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said at the time: “ALDI recognizes that consumers today care about animal welfare, their own health, and the impact that a meat- and dairy-heavy diet has on the environment—and it deserves to be recognized for offering shoppers a host of tasty vegan foods.”

The popular grocery store chain’s vegan options range from veggie burgers and hot dogs to meatless meatballs, vegetable pot stickers, eggplant ravioli and dairy-free ice cream.
