Are you taking part in Veganuary this month? Going plant-based in January doesn’t mean you only have to eat your run-of-the-mill veggies, there are lots of different ways to enjoy vegan treats right here in Frenchgate. Check out some of our top five picks that you can pick up in the Centre.
Head to Burger King to check out the vegan version of their Ultimate Bean Burger. This delicious black bean patty has a green chilli kick, red pepper sweetness, is coated in a crunchy tortilla crumb and is topped off with crispy fried onions, fresh lettuce, and tomatoes. Make sure to order without the dairy cheese slice to make it suitable for your vegan ambitions.
Just in time for Veganuary you can now find the new and improved Vegan Steak Bake at Greggs. If you loved it before, you will be sure to love this even more now. Not had the chance to try it yet? Now is the time to try the bespoke Quorn mycroprotein pieces, diced onions and vegan-friendly gravy all wrapped in golden puff pastry. None of the meat and all the flavour of the traditional Greggs favourite.
KFC may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to vegan food, but that is all set to change when you try their finger-lickin’ Vegan Burger. Featuring the famous 11 secret herbs and spices, the Quorn fillet patty is sandwiched between a sesame bun with lettuce and vegan mayo.
There’s a new Vegan Trademark certified range now available at Krispy Kreme. Their delicious Chocolate Cookie Crunch doughnut is made without any animal ingredients, so whatever your reason for doing Veganuary you can enjoy a tasty, sweet doughnut without having to worry about it. Tuck into a ring doughnut covered in dark chocolate icing, cookie crumb and frosting topped off with a mini cookie.
It's not just about the food this Veganuary, either! Plenty of products such as cosmetics and health and beauty are certified vegan too and is a great way to extend your Veganuary principles across your daily routine. Lush have lots of vegan products you should check out, including the Deep Sleep vegan bath bomb which will help you on your way to achieving a good, restful night’s sleep. Pop it in your bathtub and watch it fizzle away in the water as it fills the air with scents of lavender, chamomile and neroli oils before the Epsom salts start to relax your tired muscles.
