Iceland has launched a new plant-based vegan range.
The supermarkets ‘meat-replicating’ range includes a diverse set of 13 vegan dishes.
"The new Vegan Range is designed to allow customers to cook like they would with meat and provide the solution for those wanting to eat more plant-based foods without sacrificing the taste or texture," the retailer said in a statement.
The plant-based foods include No Porkies Chorizo, the first meat-replicating chorizo, as well as No Chick Chunks, and No Bull Asian Burgers which includes wheat protein seasoned with Asian spices.

“We had tremendous success with the No Bull Burger and it’s clear our customers want more from us. In creating this range, we have embraced the nation’s love for alternative plant-based foods in an innovative and exciting way," Neil Nugent, head chef, Iceland said.
“We created the most extensive and diverse range currently on offer in Ireland that demonstrates just how tasty and inspiring plant-based food can be. We’ve also launched ingredients to make it easier for customers to create flavoursome dishes. Our No Bull Meatballs are perfect on top of a salad or they make a delicious pasta dish.”
