Just yesterday, Subway rolled out their first entirely plant-based menu items to the public. Finally, vegans don't have to opt for salads when eating at Subway with their friends.
The sandwich giant introduced two vegan options– a classic sub sandwich and a salad– which will be permanently available in their sandwich shops nationwide.
The sub sandwich, named the Vegan Sub, features a "meat" patty that's made from chili, garlic, red pepper, and red onion, making it a flavorful sandwich option for vegans. Subway has also introduced a vegan garlic aioli sauce, which can be added to the sub for extra flavor. The salad is made of the exact same recipe for the plant-based meat substitute, just in bowl form. As usual, customers can customize their salad by adding vegetables as they please.
Subway is not the first massive food chain to step foot into the plant-based industry. Recently, Burger King introduced their entirely plant-based Impossible Whopper, which as the name implies, utilizes a plant-based patty from the brand Impossible Foods. Del Taco has also recently introduced their Beyond Taco, which features a crumbled plant-based meat substitute from Beyond Meat.
Subway’s addition of brand-new vegan menu options comes as a fresh step in the right direction, and vegan Subway fans can now rejoice.
