WIN­NER COOK Por­to­bello Mush­room Welling­ton

Veg­e­tar­ian

£10 for 360g; cook­food.net Crisp puff pas­try topped with a fes­tive star stuffed with chunky mush­rooms, chest­nuts and lentils make this a de­li­ciously sub­stan­tial dish. Pars­ley, tar­ragon and black pep­per add a herby kick, while sweet cele­riac bal­ances the earth­i­ness of the mush­rooms. SCORE 89/100

RUN­NER-UP Booths Roasted Beet­root, Feta & Pine Nut Tart

Veg­e­tar­ian

£7.50 for 400g Burst­ing with flavour, the salty, tangy feta and the earthy beet­root pair beau­ti­fully in this tart. The but­tery pas­try flakes apart pleas­ingly, while the pine nuts add a nutty crunch. SCORE 85/100

BEST OF THE REST Mor­risons The Best Mush­room, Spinach & Madeira En Croute

Veg­e­tar­ian

£5 for 465g Testers loved the clas­sic com­bi­na­tion of creamy cheese and onion, which works with the mush­room to give a deeply savoury flavour. The cia­batta and pump­kin seed crumb adds a fantastic tex­ture to the thick, crisp pas­try. SCORE 83/100 Aldi Roasted But­ter­nut Squash Roast £2.99 for 400g The ap­peal­ing aroma is rem­i­nis­cent of mush­room car­bonara. Testers loved the sub­tle sweet­ness of the squash and the creamy sauce, made richer with Wens­ley­dale. The mush­rooms add a pleas­ing chunk­i­ness. SCORE 81/100

Co-op But­ter­nut, Goats’ Cheese and Red Onion Rosti

Veg­e­tar­ian

£3 for 321g A creamy, tangy dish with a well-bal­anced flavour; the goats’ cheese works in har­mony with the sweet onion chut­ney. The squash is chunky and the bread­crumbs add crunch, but it lacks depth. SCORE 78/100

Sains­bury’s Taste the Dif­fer­ence Fes­tive Jewelled Squash & Pis­ta­chio Pi­laf

Ve­gan

£7 for 750g Testers loved the look of this rain­bow-coloured dish with dried cran­ber­ries, but­ter­nut squash and slices of red pep­pers. Cin­na­mon, smoked pa­prika and car­damom, plus a pome­gran­ate and cran­berry sauce give the dish a Moroc­can-spiced flavour, but it lacks pis­ta­chios. SCORE 78/100
