If you were hesitant to give Veganuary a try, maybe the news of the addition of exciting vegan fare at one of the UK’s popular restaurants will make you jump aboard the green train.
Frankie & Benny’s has officially launched four new vegan dishes to celebrate Veganuary, which are now available in restaurants across the UK.
You might think pizza is off-limits to those on a vegan diet. However, creamy vegan mozzarella is used to create the Plantball Marinara pizza. Sink your teeth into savory vegan chunks that are tumbled in a Napoletana tomato sauce and garnished with fragrant basil.
Maybe you fancy a hot dog, in which case you will want to get your hands on the Vegan Dog.
This succulent plant-based hot dog is nestled in a soft glazed roll and topped with crispy fried onions. The usual additions of pickles, chili peppers, barbecue sauce, skin-on fries, and vegan mayonnaise make this another dish you wouldn’t realize is vegan.
In this cold weather, comfort food will be a treat. Dive into the Vegan Mac ‘n’ Cheese which features perfectly cooked pasta in a vegan cheddar sauce and topped with a delicately spicy, smoky tomato sauce.
There is even something for gourmets. Take a fork and dip into the hot vegan speculoos cookie dough. Expect crispy honeycomb chips, chocolate banana sauce, and vegan chocolate chip ice cream.
These four new additions join Frankie & Benny’s already extensive vegan range. This includes delicious dishes such as Vegan Fry Up with Scrambled Tofu and Mashed Avocado and a Viva La Vegan Stacker Burger with a quarter pound vegan drizzled with chili pepper dressing.
Veganuary’s popularity continues this year as people delve into a plant-based diet for the New Year. In 2021, Veganuary had over 500,000 subscriptions and the #Veganuary hashtag on Instagram has over 1.5 million posts.
Whether you’re looking to try a meatless diet, reduce your carbon footprint, or cut down on your meat intake, Veganuary is a great way to test plant-based waters.
Jon Knight, General Manager Leisure & Concessions, said: “Frankie & Benny’s have been supporting Veganuary since 2016, all of our restaurants and employees take pride in ensuring that our customers can enjoy a fun and welcoming atmosphere as well. than a menu that includes a genuine selection of flavorful and comforting plant-based foods.
