Vegans rejoice.

Subway has just delivered us some stunning news this Thursday morning by announcing that a vegan version of the popular Meatball Marinara sandwich lands in restaurants today.

The Meatless Meatball Marinara will still pack all the flavour and taste like the original but this time with no animal products whatsoever.

The new plant-based sub will feature the same moreish marinara sauce as well as slices of vegan melted cheese.

The launch of this new sandwich also ties in well with Veganuary, as many people opt for a plant-based lifestyle for the month of January as they “road test” a new way of eating.

Colin Hughes, country director Subway UK and Ireland said:

“We’re always shaking up our menu at Subway as we are constantly innovating. Our guests wanted a meatless version of our iconic Sub, so we made it for them. ‘The Meatless Meatball Marinara is equally as delicious as the original, and a tempting choice for all our guests, whether they are looking for a plant-based alternative, or simply want to enjoy something a little different.”

And Subway isn’t the only one releasing new vegan options today, JustEat has announced that KFC will be offering a vegan burger featuring the irresistible KFC coating to mark its partnership with the delivery service.

The all-new KFC Vegan Burger is now available for delivering straight to your home or office with the tap of the Just Eat app.

Music to our ears.
