Veganuary: The best vegan plant-based supermarket lunchtime meal deals rated

WATCH: We taste test supermarket sandwiches for Veganuary and there is one clear winner.

More than half a million people got involved with Veganuary last year. With vegan options becoming cheaper and more widespread, there’s never been a better time to try out a plant-based diet.

With even the big fast-food chains getting involved, the convenience is there - but what about the taste?

Watch the video above as we taste test and rank the value of the lunch-time options available at some of the major supermarkets.

What is Veganuary?

Launched in the UK in January 2014, Veganuary is a non-profit organisation that encourages people to try vegan for January and beyond.

Veganuary is focused on changing consumer behaviours and attitudes, while providing all the information and practical support required to make the transition to veganism as easy and as enjoyable as possible through the month.

Since the campaign started, more than 1.5 million people have registered to try vegan, although data suggests that ten times more people actually participate and try vegan in January each year.

How did the lunchtime options rate?

Aldi £1.75

Korean Inspired BBQ Chick’n

Tasty with a good texture but overall slightly dry and lacking in oomph


Asda £2.75

Vegan Philly Steak Sub

Delicious, moist, very meaty for a vegan butty and can even be enjoyed warm


Tesco £.2.50

Roasted Vegetable & Pesto

Great flavours, crunchy vegetables - would be ideal for a light lunch


McDonald’s McPlant

We also recently tried the new McDonald’s vegan burger and here’s our 60-second video review.
