Wetherspoons vegan menu

Aug 16 - see new updated article on our new site: http://www.veganwomble.co.uk/wordpress/wetherspoon/

Wetherspoons (April 2015) (DUE AN UPDATED MENU IN SEPT - WILL UPDATE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AFTERWARDS)

There is now a pdf on Wetherspoons website showing vegan options including some changes to the meals to make them vegan!
Sometimes you just have to think outside the box to expand the vegan choices available. This has been put together by a vegan working for wetherspoons that has read all the labels. 

Okay, here's what vegans can order at Wetherspoons. You have to make some special requests for most of it but the staff really don't mind.. unless you're a table of 30 
Most items will contain traces or milk or egg, as most foods do.

Breakfast:
Beans on toast
Fruit Salad – no yoghurt
Toast and marmalade
Vegetarian breakfast – substitute the egg and quorn sausage for more beans, hashbrown, toast, mushroom* or tomato.
Sausage roll – substitute sausage for a hashbrown, and ask for a mushroom* on it too. Delicious! Specify no butter on the roll.

Lunch:
Italian tomato and basil soup with bread
Jacket potato with beans - ask for vinaigrette instead of dressing
Chicken breast wrap – mushroom* instead of chicken
Ham panini/toastie – ask for tomato, lettuce and mushroom instead of the ham and cheese and make a little MLT! If your going to have any sandwich/toastie/wrap, you can now add sauteed onions to it.
Nachos – no cheese or sour cream, extra guac/salsa
Freedom Salad
Bowl of chips
Side salad – vinaigrette instead of dressing

Sweet potato curry – substitute the naan bread for extra popadom.
Mini corn on the cob which is vegan if cooked without butter added.
Pomodoro sauce without the pasta - ask for jacket potato or chips instead.

Curry club (Thursday):
Sweet potato curry – substitute the naan bread for extra popadom. The large option includes onion bhaji and samosa which are both vegan. Comes with mango chutney.

Mexican Mondays - includes a free drink
Tortilla chips and salsa side order
Burrito without cheese or sour cream (Burrito mix is vegan its just beans, peppers and rice). You can add mushrooms* and nachos instead. Salsa and guacamole is vegan.
There is also a naked burrito, but its just mexican rice on lettuce with guacamole.
Nachos with a topping, ask for burrito mix instead of meat and no cheese or sour cream, extra guac/salsa

Dessert:
Apple crumble – plain, or you can substitute custard for strawberry and blueberry sauce or chocolate sauce if you wish. Or you could ask for a chopped up banana instead. 
Someone has mentioned that the apple crumble contains milk, this is a list of the ingredients, not even a milk allergen warning. Says suitable for vegetarians and no milk or egg allergy warning either. 

*Remember to ask for the mushroom to be cooked without butter
Chips and hash browns are to be eaten at your own discretion, as some pubs cook meat in the vegetable fryer. The oil from both fryers are filtered together anyway, even if they do cook separately. 
The rice has also been changed - there is now mexican rice and basmati rice.

Delicious Dessert Thickies review and free recipe



Just got a copy of this fabulous dessert smoothies kindle book and I have been given permission from the author to share two recipes with you. I shares one last week and this is the one I promised for this week!

Peppermint Brownie
DessertTHICKIE

Serves 2
Believe it or not this recipe has no chocolate in it, just cocoa powder and other wholesome ingredients. This will sort out all those chocolate cravings while avoiding piling on the pounds.

Ingredients
2 cups dairy-free milk (oat, rice, soya, almond, hemp, coconut drink or raw nut or seed milk)
4 bananas
1/4 cup of pecans
1/2 cup of raisins or dates/ date paste
1/4 cup of cocoa/ cacao or carob powder
1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract or 20 mint leaves

Optional:
1 cup loosely packed spinach or other mild greens or frozen spinach
1 filler

Instructions
Blend until smooth.

See start of the section for detailed instructions on how to make a DessertTHICKIE

I used coconut butter as my filler, but there are many too choose from so you can get a variety of tastes.

This is a picture of the one I made today. Just over a glass full.

It was very yummy and I look forward to trying another!

AINSLEY
Ainsley Harriott has tuscan tomato soup that you can microwave



ALDI
Aldi now have a vegan list, see this article for the latest one.
Not sure if they do any ready meals. I think they do a pot noodle type thing, they do beans salads and other ready to eat salads and houmous, plain, caramelised onion and red pepper. Brushchetta bites. Not sure if they still do the hotpot, stew and Bolognese, I haven't seen it for a while.

Not exactly a ready meal, but with one of the above cans it would make a very quick meal.





AMY'S KITCHEN
vegan ready meals and available in some supermarkets, breakfast burger, chinese noodles, thai curry. Pictures to follow soon. All the range isn't vegan.



ASDA
I have no idea and I welcome any input on what they sell. I know they do a vegetabel ravioli in tomato sauce which could make a quick meal if served on toast. Oh they do sell Glorious soups in the fridge.
This is the only bake out of the new range that is vegan, all the rest have honey!











Some Asda's sell Kirsty's meals, see Kirsty's below..

They are in the fridge. Not all full meals, but you can make a ready meal with a combination of them.
Selected co-ops only, but why not ask for them.


 
There is also many more items in the fridge and items in the freezer too. See this article for more info






DEE'S
They now have pot ready meals in several flavours available via Holland and Barrett and other health food stores.




THE FOOD DOCTOR

SAINSBURYS
Canned spaghetti bolognese and curry, just pop in a dish and microwave for a quick meal.
