If you were hesitant to try Veganuary, perhaps news of the addition of exciting vegan dishes at one of the UK’s popular restaurants will have you jumping on the green train.
Frankie & Benny’s have 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 for those on a vegan diet. However, creamy vegan mozzarella is used to create the Plantball Marinara pizza. Sink your teeth into savory vegan morsels that are tossed in Napoletana tomato sauce and topped with fragrant basil.
Maybe you’re craving a hot dog, in which case you’ll 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, fries with skin on, and vegan mayonnaise make this another dish you wouldn’t realize is vegan.
In this cold weather, comfort food will be a treat. Dig into the vegan Mac ‘n’ Cheese which features perfectly cooked pasta in a vegan cheddar sauce and topped with a smoky, delicately spiced tomato sauce.
There’s even some for the greedy eaters. Grab a fork and dip into the Hot Vegan Speculoos Cookie Dough. Expect crispy nuggets of honeycomb, banana chocolate 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 smashed avocado and the Viva La Vegan Stacker burger with a vegan quarter pound drizzled with red chili dressing.
Veganuary’s popularity continues this year as people consider a plant-based diet for the new year. In 2021, Veganuary had over 500,000 signups and the #Veganuary hashtag on Instagram has over 1.5 million posts.
Whether you’re looking to test out a meatless diet, reduce your carbon footprint, or reduce your meat consumption, Veganuary is a great way to test the plant waters.
Jon Knight, General Manager of Leisure and Concessions, said: “Frankie & Benny’s has supported Veganuary since 2016, with all of our restaurants and employees taking pride in ensuring that our customers can enjoy a fun and inviting atmosphere, as well as than a menu that encompasses a true selection of tasty and comforting plant foods inspired by food.
“With the launch of our new vegan items from early January 2022, we hope to see more people than ever get involved and support Veganuary this year.”
