Vegan Shopping Basket - The Best Savoury Condiments

by Laura Barns

6min read

If you’re mourning mayo or finding it tough to dodge fish sauce in cooking, have no fear. There are a ton of ‘accidentally vegan’ condiments that you probably already love, and a bunch of undiscovered ones to add to your collection. 

Heinz Ketchup

It’s (probably) illegal to not start with this one. Because yes, ketchup IS vegan, hoorah! And this is without a doubt a universal favourite.

Best for: we don’t think we should start this debate

Average price: £2.00

Availability: 5/5 

Taste: 5/5 

Overall rating: 5/5

Kikkoman Less Salt Soy Sauce

Although incredibly versatile, tasty and vegan-friendly, soy sauce is quite high in salt. That’s why we’re huge fans of this low-salt version – all the fun and zero compromise on flavour. 

Best for: salt-conscious Asian cooking

Average price: £2.50

Availability: 3/5

Taste: 4/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Follow Your Heart Vegenaise 

Lots of well-known brands (like Hellmann’s) sell vegan mayonnaise now, but we’ll always shout out to the smaller brands who did it first. This one is creamy and decadently moreish. 

Best for: adding to sandwiches and salads

Average price: £2.70

Availability: 2/5

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli Sauce

Having a bottle of this in your cupboard can add some zing to your cooking or dipping in seconds. It’s tangy, sweet and the perfect friend for your spring rolls. 

Best for: complementing Chinese and Thai starters and sides

Average price: £1.99

Availability: 5/5

Taste: 3/5

Overall rating: 4/5

Thai Spicy Vegan Sriracha Mayonnaise

Yep, you read that correctly. If you haven’t tried this slathered on well... pretty much anything… we implore you to do so immediately. Because vegans CAN have all the tangy, creamy, dreamy fun.

Best for: adding some zing to wraps, burritos, salads... pretty much anything

Average price: £3.99

Accessibility: 4/5 

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 5/5

Henderson’s Relish 

When making stew, my mum used to sneak in a splash of (very un-vegan) Worcestershire sauce. So thank heck for Sheffield’s greatest creation, after the Arctic Monkeys. 

Best for: substituting Worcestershire sauce in things like stews, soups and toasties

Average price: £1.80

Availability: 2/5

Taste: 4/5 

Overall rating: 4/5 

Sauce Shop BBQ Sauce 

Sauce fans will undoubtedly love the range from the Sauce Shop. A fair few of them are vegan, but this is our favourite as it’s the perfect balance of smoky-sweetness.

Best for: vegan bbqs

Average price: £2.99

Availability: 3/5 

Taste: 3/5

Overall rating: 3/5 

Lee Kum Kee Hoisin Sauce 

Now available in most supermarkets, this vegan hoisin sauce is the perfect addition for Asian cooking and serving. 

Best for: adding to bao, sushi, and for dipping in your dim sum

Average price: £2.20

Availability: 5/5 

Taste: 4/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Stay tuned for the next instalment in our Vegan Shopping Basket series.
