Tesco serves up market-first cauliflower & mushroom BBQ steaks

A new launch from Tesco is set to make BBQ parties “more exciting for vegetarians”. The launch of the UK’s first ever cauliflower and mushroom BBQ steaks (£2) comes at a time when the supermarket has seen increased demand for vegetarian food with sales of chilled vegetarian ready meals jumping by nearly 20%.

Tesco food developer Alison Stokes, who developed the new range, said: “Vegetarian customers have told us they often feel they can be an afterthought at BBQ parties and if they’re lucky they might be able to find some corn on the cob or halloumi. We’ve decided to help by creating the UK’s first ever cauliflower and Portobello mushroom steaks which we believe is an irresistibly delicious option that not only to vegetarians but also to meat eaters.”

The cauliflower steak comes with a lemon and garlic drizzle while the portobello mushroom comes with a peppercorn sauce.

Also being launched this week as part of Tesco’s new prepared vegetables BBQ range are Halloumi Kebabs, and Mega Potato Wedges (all £2).
