It’s 2022, and no vegan can be bothered to compromise very much on taste, and here, you don’t have to.

We think Soulful is the ultimate fast food. Our meals are ready in 3 minutes and all of our vegan OnePots have at least two of your five a day. 

We’re proud of that, but we also know that life is about balance, so we’ve put together the top 5 vegan fast food menu items across the UK so you can save your tastebuds, avoid any mouthfuls of disappointment and enjoy your meal.


We know you’re probably getting hungry, so let’s get right into it.

1. McDonald’s McPlant Burger

Who doesn’t love a burger? Our pick at Maccy D’s is their juicy plant-based patty co-developed with Beyond Meat® featuring vegan sandwich sauce, ketchup, mustard, onion, pickles, lettuce, tomato, and a vegan alternative to cheese in a sesame seed bun. We’re dreaming of the day they release some top notch vegan chick’n nuggets, which would come second to the burger.  However, until then, the McDonald’s hashbrown isn’t to be sniffed at.


2. Burger King Vegan Royale

Launched in April 2021 as a vegan alternative to the popular Chicken Royale, the Burger King Vegan Royale consists of a crispy coated plant-based ‘chicken’ fillet from The Vegetarian Butcher, topped with iceberg lettuce and vegan mayo inside a toasted sesame seed bun. Fancy a side? You can still follow your vegan diet and indulge in some fries!

3. Greggs Vegan Sausage Roll

Let’s face it: these are marginally less greasy and flaky than the real thing. But you’re not having the real thing, are you? You’re having the Greggs Vegan Sausage Roll.


4. Nando’s Great Imitator

The Great Imitator is Nando’s first ever plant-based PERi-PERi chicken alternative, packed full of PERi-PERi, made completely from pea protein. As the name suggests, this delicious alternative tastes so much like their famous PERi-PERi chicken, even the biggest Nando’s fan will find it hard to tell the difference.

The Great Imitator is a plant-based recipe however the wrap and baste contain shellac, just FYI.


5. KFC Original Recipe Vegan Burger

Get yourself a finger lickin’ vegan burger from KFC. Coated in their famous 11 Herbs and Spices, you’ll be served up a Quorn fillet in a sesame bun with fresh lettuce and vegan mayo. It’s a vegan burger the Colonel would be proud to put his name to.
