There was a time where you would be lucky to find even one decent nut roast in a supermarket, now it is a challenge to choose between all the wonderful vegan options that are on offer. 

We have made this process a little easier for you by sampling all of the products and creating this carefully selected list of the best vegan Christmas mains. 

There were certain criteria that the products had to meet to make this shortlist: we looked out for products that would work well with the traditional roast trimmings, had excellent flavour, an attractive appearance and preferably ones that had a little sparkle and creativity.  

Serve them alongside all of your fave vegan sides, like our crispy roast potatoes and maple glazed carrots with pecans, and Christmas is sorted. All that is left to do is chill the bubbly and wrap up the presents. 

If you want to look at our other top picks then step over here to look at our ultimate woman&home Christmas taste tests.
