The Best Vegan Sausage Rolls
The lowdown on vegan sausage rolls – Everybody has fond such memories of this golden snack at birthday parties and picnics. So what about switching to plant-based rolls and helping the planet with every mouthful? Keep reading to discover our top vegan sausage roll recipe, along with some info around the nation’s favourite vegan sausage roll – we think you can guess which one we mean.
Many people decide to switch to a plant-based diet because nature's pantry is so big, meaning it’s never a case of cutting anything out, just adding to your options you may have not considered.
The same is true when we turn to vegan sausage rolls. And there are a lot of creative chefs out there who’ve made it easy for us all to enjoy plant-based sausage rolls on the go and at home.
Gregg’s vegan sausage roll
The vegan sausage roll that broke the internet! It was released on a trial basis in January, 2019 to a phenomenal response from vegans and die-hard pastry-lovers. This plant-based baked snack rewarded the high street bakers so well, that each employee received a £300 bonus a year later. Equaling £7m worth of plant-powered pennies in total. That’s green revenue.
The fungi-based protein filling is made in the same factory as Quorn in Darlington. Making it an exciting place to visit (especially if they have tasters).
We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that there are only 311 calories in a Gregg’s vegan sausage roll. Not that it matters when it’s the only thing that will hit the spot, right?
