A very VEGGIE new year! High street chains unveil new vegan menus including Subway’s No Chick’n Sub and Starbucks’ ‘sausage’ breakfast roll – while Wagamama vows to make half its food meat-free within a year

  • More than 400,000 people took part in Veganuary 2020, and this figure looks set to rise in January 2021, as plant-based eating continues to grow in popularity 
  • Restaurants, cafes, and shops are cashing in with more offerings than ever 
  • Here, FEMAIL looks at the vegan treats on offer throughout January including at Marks & Spencer, Starbucks and Subway

A new year often rings in a new diet, and with 2020 now firmly behind us, thousands of Brits are preparing to take part in Veganuary – ditching meat, fish and dairy for the first 31 days of 2021. 

And hoping to cash in on the new vegans are UK retailers, who’ve been busy creating new plant-based dishes.

From Subway’s No Chick’n Sub to Domino’s vegan pizza and Starbucks’ Beyond Meat breakfast roll,  several brands are getting in on the act as people give up animal products for the month. 

Meanwhile, Wagamama has announced that half its menu will be meat-free within a year.

Launching on January 5, it will offer a raft of meat-free alternatives to its popular dishes such as vegan chilli squid, sticky ribs, firecracker curry and no duck donburi. 

Here, FEMAIL looks at the vegan delights on offer throughout January…  


Those going vegan will be able to grab a bite in Starbucks, with their new No Chick’n & BBQ Bean Hot Wrap (left)) , a delicious flame grilled soya-based chicken alternative with BBQ beans, spinach, onion, coriander and a hint of lime juice. The chain is also launching a Beyond Meat® Breakfast Sandwich. This plant-based breakfast option is made with an irresistible Beyond Breakfast Sausage® patty, Starbucks’ signature tomato relish, tofu turmeric egg alternative and a slice of melted plant-based cheese (right)

CAFES AND RESTAURANTS 

STARBUCKS

With a chilly month ahead and lots of brisk walks in the pipeline as the country remains in lockdown, many will be nipping into their local coffee shop for a takeaway hot cuppa.

And those going vegan will be able to grab a bite in Starbucks too, with their new No Chick’n & BBQ Bean Hot Wrap. A flame-grilled soya-based chicken alternative, it comes with BBQ beans, spinach, onion, coriander and a hint of lime juice. 

The chain is also launching a Beyond Meat® Breakfast Sandwich. This plant-based breakfast option is made with a Beyond Breakfast Sausage® patty, Starbucks’ signature tomato relish, tofu turmeric egg alternative and a slice of melted plant-based cheese. 

This sandwich marks the debut of Beyond Breakfast Sausage in the UK and is an exclusive Starbucks UK recipe.  

To wash it down, Starbucks has now gone one step further and added a new exclusive dairy alternative option to the menu – the Starbucks™ Original Nut Blend. 

Truly making customers’ drinks unique to their taste, the silky-smooth dairy alternative is blended with hazelnut, cashew nuts and rice. Innovated to steam perfectly and provide a superior coffee experience, this dairy alternative is a great partner to both hot and cold drinks.
