Vegan Guide To Subway

by Laura Barns

3min read

If you loved our vegan guide to Greggs and vegan guide to Costa, this will be right up your alley. I’m back, this time with a look at all the delicious vegan options at Subway UK in Veganuary and beyond. 

Subway serves roughly 5,300 sandwiches a minute, and that was just to me alone, when the TLC sub came out. Here are some of the green delights you can enjoy on the menu to get in on the goods.

Vegan bread

Starting off your Subway journey with the bread, there are four different types available if you follow a vegan diet (though do double-check at your local store):

  • Italian
  • Hearty Italian
  • Chilli Paprika
  • 9-Grain Multiseed

Now getting into the good stuff – the fillings. Top tip: don’t forget to ask the server to change their gloves before making your sandwich to minimise contamination as much as possible. 

  • T.L.C. (Tastes.Like.Chicken)   – Your bread selection loaded with plant-based chicken and your choice of veggies. It Tastes Like Chicken, except it's plant-based (PB).
  • Meatless Meatball Marinara Melt  – Your bread selection filled with plant-based Meatless Meatballs smothered in a rich marinara sauce and topped with vegan cheese.
  • Plant Patty  – The seasoned plant-based patty, made with red onion, red sweet pepper, green sweet pepper, carrot, spinach, corn, white cabbage, peas and green chillies.
  • Veggie Delite  – This light and refreshing sub comes with freshly sliced crunchy salad – just don’t forget to specify vegan cheese instead of regular. 
  • Vegan Cheese Toasted Bite – Ciabatta bite roll filled with vegan cheese and two veggies of your choice.

Vegan fillings

Fill your way to five a day with all the tasty vegan salad options to add to your sub, wrap or salad. 

  • Cucumbers
  • Sweetcorn
  • Red onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Spinach
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Mixed peppers
  • Carrot
  • Black olives
  • Jalapeños
  • Pickles
  • Violife Vegan Cheese

Vegan sauces and condiments

Spice up your sub with one of Subway’s vegan sauces. There’s actually a fair few to choose from. I highly recommend opting for the sweet chilli with lashings of the vegan garlic aioli for ultimate sauciness.

  • Tomato ketchup
  • Sweet onion
  • Hot chilli
  • Yellow mustard
  • Sriracha hot chilli
  • Vinaigrette
  • HP brown sauce
  • Sweet chilli
  • Vegan garlic aioli

Add a little crunch to your meal with these tasty vegan toppings:

  • Crispy onions
  • Chilli flakes
  • Mixed seeds
  • Sea salt
  • Mixed peppercorns

Vegan sides and extras

All the rumours are true – there is a vegan cookie at Subway and I can confirm it is DELICIOUS. That is all.

  • Hashbrowns
  • Vegan double chocolate cookie
  • Selection of crisps
  • Fruit rolls
