The Greggs Mexican bean wrap is also suitable for vegans if made without cheese. This can be done outside the hours of 12 and 2pm if they have the ingredients in stock.

In select stores the Belgian buns are vegan. Check the allergy booklet to find out if your local store stocks the vegan versions. (They have two suppliers, so some shops have vegan ones, and some don’t)

Samosa is in the meal deal, with crisps and drinks.

 

They also have carrot sticks and houmous in the take out section and they now sell single portion iced buns too for dessert. They sell many many salads, couscous/char-grilled veg type, pasta type, superfoods etc. Far too many to list and most usually on 2 for £3. They also have a trio of topped bread rolls, that make a good sandwich replacement.

I also love there cranberry and pecan bread and the fig and walnut bread. Tasty on their own.

This pepper and tomato bread is also very yummy. Now although you are supposed to heat it for about 10 mins, it is perfectly nice cold and makes a good sandwich replacement.

Repackaged, looks like this one below now.

One of the many vegan salads they sell

I am told this falafel salad looks vegan, haven’t seen it myself. Our branch sells a non-vegan falafel salad with feta cheese.

Also a new potato, pea and mint salad

 Also these may be of interest

MORRISONS

 General Fridge

 Take Out Fridge (usually near Cigarette counter)

Morrisons meal deal now includes the medium sized pot from their salad bar and as well as crisps as a side there is houmous and carrot sticks or houmous and falafal

These Samosa’s don’t have ‘suitable for vegetarians’ on the packaging, so they have been contacted to find out if they are ok, they certainly look like they are

Also in the take out fridge – Great Food snack pack. (Not a Morrisons brand, but often sold in Morrisons as well as other outlets).

POUND BAKERY

(Liverpool and North West area, Yorkshire and Derby) (Comes under several other names too)

Veggie sausage rolls (some stores coat with egg before cooking, so check with your local store. Can be bought frozen to cook at home), Belgium buns and potato cakes. Most of the bread is also vegan. Ask to check nutritional list.

RAYNORS

They supply sandwiches to many outlets including Coffee Link Café and Budgen supermarket.

SAINSBURY’S

Sainsburys don’t do any own brand vegan sandwiches or wraps. Its just a case of a salad box and houmous or one of these ideas below. Select stores sell Urban Eat sandwiches/wraps.

For their latest vegan lists see this page.

 

I know they also do a pasta pot (pasta in a tomato sauce) and couscous with char-grilled roast vegetables pot. They also sell onion bhaji, samosas etc, but not sure if you can eat them cold or not. Grilled artichoke pots are another option to go alongside some of these choices. Also salsa dip and low fat guacamole to serve with falafels and salad would be good. Mixed bean salads.

SPAR

They sell at least 6 choices of vegan sandwiches/wraps/burritos in selected stores, specially near universities. They are made by Freshfoods.  In my local I have spotted a bean salad only. They tend to use local companies so there choices are different around the country.

STARBUCKS

Offers a vegan-friendly salad, porridge and other options dependent on the franchise as well as vegan drinks

They also usually have  some snacks such as raw raspberry bar, dark chocolate bar and jelly sweets.

You can find their food and beverage allergen charts here.

SUBWAY

They do a veggie delight on hearty Italian bread with no cheese. Basically a salad sandwich, which you would then need to pop to your local health food store and pick up a pack of vbite slices to add to it to make it more filling and interesting. Although you would want to ask for clean gloves and knifes to be used, cross contamination is a big issue, due to putting gloved hands into food that has touched meat.  Apparently they are trialing houmous at some branches.
