What’s December cooking?

Keep up to date with all the latest vegan news, products and happenings


This year, for the first time ever, IKEA is bidding farewell to the traditional turkey roast as part of its festive food menu. Instead, IKEA will only be serving meat-free Christmas dishes to visitors across all stores, nationwide. The move to go meat-free aims to offer more plant-friendly and sustainable meals, at a low price. From 4th November, IKEA customers will be able to purchase two new meat-free meals from the restaurant. While the Brie and Cranberry Open Tart (£4.25) is sadly only suitable for vegetarians rather than vegans, the vegan option still sounds equally as delicious! The vegan Root Vegetable Tart Tatin (£3.95) is made with dairy-free puff pastry topped with glazed root vegetables and a sprinkling of thyme. Both dishes will also be part of IKEA’s £5 lunchtime offer, which includes dessert and a drink.Head over to for more info and to find your nearest store.

Pizza Hut expands its vegan menu


Pizza Hut introduced its first vegan menu earlier this year and is now expanding their vegan options further with a new pizza, plant-based nuggets and a delicious vegan cheesecake. The fifth vegan pizza to hit the menu is the Vegan All About Mushrooms Pizza, which features tomato sauce, Violife cheese paired with closed cup mushrooms and garlic mushrooms. The restaurant has partnered with Quorn to add Southern Fried Nuggets to the menu as a starter or a side, which is available as part of the Individual Meal Deal including a starter, main course, drink and unlimited salad from £14.99. The I Can’t Believe it’s Not Cheesecake with biscuits and caramel also joins the dessert menu. Visit
