Our Veganuary Favourites!


veganuary

New Year … New me. We’ve all been there and tried that. This year we decided to kick start our year with a challenge that not only helps us into making healthier life choices, but also encourages us to be positively aware of the decisions that we make and the effects on the environment around us.

To make the most of #Veganuary, we’ve rounded up our favourite vegan friendly meals and snacks from our local restaurant and Cafés .

If you fancy a twist from your usual lunch break options, why not head over to Costa Coffee and try their new Vegan Smoky Ham & CheeZe toastie. Filled with Quorn vegan ham, the toastie is jam packed with flavour and it’ll leave you going back for seconds.

If you fancy one of their hot drinks, don’t forget you can now add Coconut, Almond or Soya dairy alternatives with no extra cost*.

Head over to Starbucks if you fancy a wholesome Vegan All Day Breakfast Burrito. You’ll find the spinach tortilla filled with smoked scrambled tofu, layered with tomato, chipotle beans, spinach and mushrooms.

 

If you love Mac ‘n’ Cheese as much as we do, then you’ll love this Vegan Mac made with macaroni with vegan butternut squash sauce, spinach and parsley crumb. We really can’t resist!

And if you love a good slice of pizza, try the new Vegan Pepperphoni Pizza at Pizza Hut, made from pea protein just for Veganuary.

Following the massive success of the Greggs Vegan Sausage rolls, the highly anticipated Vegan Steak Bake has now launched at Greggs. Made with Quorn pieces, diced onions and gravy filling, you can now get your hands on a wide variety of your favourite pastry dishes on the go at Greggs.

GREGGS LAUNCHES HIGHLY ANTICIPATED VEGAN STEAK BAKE


Greggs has today launched a follow up to its Vegan Sausage Roll amid weeks of speculation of what the new menu addition will be

Greggs has finally put an end to months of speculation by confirming the drop of its Vegan Steak Bake which hits shops today.

The leading food-on-the-go retailer has been tantalising Greggs fans in the build up to the vegan friendly launch, including a short video on its social media channels in December which read; “Believe the hype…Greggs x Vegan…dropping January 2020.”

The new Vegan Steak Bake means that the UK’s vegans, flexitarians and Meat-Free Monday advocates can enjoy an alternative to one of Greggs’ iconic menu items.

The Vegan Steak Bake has been created to mirror some of the original Steak Bake’s classic features, including 96 layers of light and crisp puff pastry, but instead is made with Quorn pieces, diced onions and a gravy filling.

Greggs’ Vegan Sausage Roll launched in January 2019 to critical acclaim – becoming one of its fastest selling products of the last 6 years.

The Greggs product development team has been working for months on the Vegan Steak Bake recipe, recruiting a whole panel of vegan and non-vegan taste testers to ensure its flavours hit the spot.

Roger Whiteside, chief executive at Greggs, said: “Our Vegan Sausage Roll launch was a huge success and we’ve been working tirelessly to expand our vegan friendly offering and provide more delicious savoury food on-the-go options for people looking to reduce their meat intake.

“The launch of our Vegan Steak Bake is another key milestone on our journey to become our customers’ favourite for food-on-the-go. We look forward to hearing the feedback.”

To celebrate the new addition to its vegan friendly range, Greggs also held an exclusive preview event at its Grainger Street shop in Newcastle-upon-Tyne last night (New Year’s Day). One thousand fans were given the opportunity to enjoy a first taste of the Vegan Steak Bake before the rest of the country with limited edition packaging also given away to the first 200.

The Greggs Vegan Steak Bake will be available from £1.55, initially across 1,300 shops from January 2nd and rolling out to a further 700 shops on the 16th January.

Greggs has also launched a Vegan Steak Bake finder to make it easier for customers to track down their local shop which goes live from 10.00am on 2 January – https://greggs.co.uk/vsb-locator.
