This year's Classic Cuisine vegetarian range includes:
- A smoky Boston bean rosti which contains spicy Mediterranean vegetables and a bean sauce sandwiched between smoked cheese and spring onion rostis.
- A roast root vegetable and rarebit tart - a spring onion and thyme pastry case filled with spiced plum chutney, creamy smoked cheddar and beer sauce topped with roasted mixed root vegetables.
- A twice baked cheddar cheese and chive soufflé.
Classic Cuisine said the company's product development team continue to go to great lengths to ensure the vegetarian range is 'innovative, tasty and award winning'.
The rosti in particular has been developed to ensure it comes in at under 500 calories making it suitable for the health conscious or for those looking to recover from festive over-indulgence.

Why should you buy it?
Mark Dean, sales director at Classic Cuisine, said the range tapped into the growing number of people looking for vegetarian options. According to the Office of National Statistics, three in five adults now eat meat-free food.
"At Classic Cuisine we have seen an increase in the popularity of vegetarian products over the past year. The demand for our vegetarian options has risen from all our clients including branded national pub chains, hotel chains, in-store dining and high street restaurants.
"I believe there are a couple of possible explanations for the increase in demand for vegetarian choices. Firstly that we are becoming a nation that is more health conscious about our diets, secondly, we are all looking to reduce the amount we spend when eating out as vegetarian options are significantly lower in price.
