Popular Italian restaurant Zizzi has just announced not just one, but three new vegan dishes that will join its exclusive product range currently in Tesco supermarkets.
The three new vegan entrees joining the line include vegan jackfruit pepperoni pizza, vegan rainbow lasagna and vegan praline brownie.
Zizzi was the first high street restaurant to offer vegan pepperoni pizza and was awarded Best Pizza at PETA’s 2016 Vegan Food Awards after it was a hit with customers.
Now Tesco shoppers can enjoy the spicy vegan jackfruit pizza at home as it makes its store debut.
Joining the Jackfruit Pizza is the new Rainbow Lasagna which offers an array of edible colors. This dish proved to be such a hit with restaurant patrons that it was added to the menu permanently shortly after its launch.
And finally, the brownie is that rich and sweet treat to end your meal and is sure to please any chocolate lover.
Zizzi currently has 13 dishes in its retail range at Tesco, but these dishes are the first vegan options to join the home dining range.
Zizzi launched its range at Tesco in March this year, extending its restaurant-quality cuisine to those who want to dine at home.
Zizzi Marketing Director Rachel Hendry said Vegan food and lifestyle: “At Zizzi, we are truly proud of our plant-based and flexitarian offering, the three delicious vegan dishes we have developed are suitable for all taste buds and we can’t wait for our loyal fans as well as new customers to taste and enjoy.”
Although many think Italian cuisine is difficult to plant-based, adapting classic dishes to a plant-based diet is simple.
Since vegan pasta dishes and vegan pizzas are so easy to make both dairy-free and meat-free, there’s plenty of room to adapt more dishes into plant-based versions.
Today, many high street Italian restaurants are accommodating a growing vegan audience.
Italian restaurants such as ASK Italia, Bella Italia and Jamie’s Italian have all made vegan adaptations to their individual menus.
It’s an everyday staple that’s perfect for a quick dinner, but have you ever wondered: is pasta vegan?
