10 Meat Free Sandwiches & Wraps For British Sandwich Week

This week is British Sandwich Week, a celebration of the nation’s favourite food-on-the-go. Surprisingly, if you are looking to buy meat free sandwiches on your lunch break, the choice amongst British supermarkets and high street chains is quite poor. In fact, the new #MeatFreeLunch campaign by Eating Better found that, despite our growing appetite for meat free options, only 4% of shop sandwiches are plant-based.

“The snapshot survey of 535 sandwiches and wraps from eight supermarkets (Asda, Boots, Co-op, Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose) and four high street sandwich chains (EAT, Greggs, Pret a Manger and Subway) found that consumers trying to eat healthily and reduce their impact on the environment will struggle to find a great choice of sandwiches that fits the bill.”

Following its own survey last year, Pret A Manger has now launched Not Just For Veggies, to show that you don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy vegetarian food. Personally I find they have the best selection. This June Pret is also running a veggie pop up by converting an existing Soho shop to become vegetarian only. I hope we’ll find some unusual and exciting selection there, beyond the quintessential Tomato & Mozzarella filling.

If on the other hand, you prefer making your own, here is a selection of delicious healthy sandwich and wrap recipes using vegetables, pulses and / or tofu. Is it lunch time yet??
