Today, Pret A Manger is introducing ‘The Vegan Classics’, four plant-based versions of some of Pret’s best selling ‘classic’ sandwiches, baguettes and wraps. The VLT, The Vegan Chuna Mayo baguette, The Vegan Eggless Mayo & Cress baguette and The Vegan Hoisin Mushroom Wrap, are available from today exclusively in Veggie Pret shops.
Pret A Manger has chosen to use unprocessed ingredients such shiitake mushroom instead of bacon and chickpeas in place of tuna so that none of ‘The Vegan Classics’ include meat or fish substitutes.
The Vegan Chuna Mayo (£2.99) baguette is a take on the Pole & Line Caught Tuna Mayo and Cucumber Baguette. To replicate fish, it combines chickpeas and vegan mayo, seasoned with a
sprinkling of pickled onions, chopped capers and parsley, finished with a squeeze of lemon. The white baguette is served with sliced cucumber, red onion and rocket. The original
recipe sells over 10,000 in the UK every day.
The VLT (£3.29) is the plant-based version of Pret’s Best Ever BLT. It pairs roasted shiitake mushroom ‘rashers’, with sliced tomatoes, green salad and a generous dollop of vegan mayo, all served on Pret’s malted bread.
The Vegan Eggless Mayo & Cress (£2.99) uses a combination of tofu and vegan mayo to create Pret’s first ‘eggless mayo’ and the baguette is finished with freshly chopped cress, and a little seasoning.
The Vegan Hoisin Duck Salad Wrap (£3.50) includes glazed mushrooms coated in Pret’s rich hoisin sauce, with cucumber, pickled cabbage & carrot salad finished with sliced spring onion, coriander and baby leaf spinach.
The Vegan Classics are available in Veggie Pret shops from today October 24th which also marks the opening of the fifth Veggie Pret located in Canary Wharf.
