Tesco’s partnership with Derek Sarno bring a new range of irresistible meals, just in time for Veganuary no less. The retail giant has partnered up with pioneering chef, Derek Sarno, to create ‘Wicked Kitchen’ – a new range of irresistible meals that celebrate that’s ‘wicked’ and tasty about plants. Prepared exclusively for Tesco, the new range will launch on 8 January in 600 stores nationwide.
From crispy carrot pastrami to wicked-meaty barbecued ‘shrooms, the vibrant wraps, meals and salads have all the zing, punch and crunch, helping you on your way to a more veg-centric diet. The exclusive range includes 11 ready meals and 9 food-to-go options, perfect for lunch or dinner.
With a third of the UK population now identifying themselves as “flexitarian”, the number of those cutting back on animal products and following a plant-based diet is set to increase by 10% this year*. Recognising this growing trend, Tesco and Derek want to bring the plant-based market from niche to mainstream with delicious ready meals, salads and sandwiches that break the stereotype of vegan eats being equated ‘rabbit food’, bland and lacking creativity. The whole range simply leads with flavour and promises to keep you super satiated.
Excited? You bet we are. We’ve been eyeing up the menu and have rounded up three of our favourites:
- RAINBOW CURRY BOWL
This beautiful looking bowl is full to the brim with colourful curried pulses, fiery sweet potato, onion bhajis, fragrant mango + a cool cool minty dressing. It just screams lunchtime saviour don’t you think? (p.s. it’s gluten free too).
- CAPONATA SOURDOUGH PIZZA
I mean…this one just speaks for itself. Wood-fired sourdough, aubergine + caper caponata and a pop of zingy salsa verde. Never one to turn down pizza, you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll be grabbing this one for our next movie night.
- CARROT PASTRAMI-SPICED WRAP
We’re more than happy to bypass the ‘on Wednesdays we wear (and eat) pink’ rule for this beet tortilla wrap. A power-packed with crisp, punchy carrot and a vibrant vegetable mix, it’s good enough to grab ANY day of the week.
Head to your local Tesco Store – we promise, these ‘shrooms won’t leave you disappointed! Find out more here
