Nando's has launched a vegan version of its iconic PERinaise sauce.
South African restaurant chain Nando’s, which specialises in Portuguese food such as peri-peri style chicken dishes, has launched a vegan version of its iconic PERinaise sauce.
The new vegan condiment launched in both restaurants and on the shelves at Tesco supermarkets on the 1st January to coincide with the start of Veganuary.
A serving of the plant-based sauce is available to purchase for 60p in restaurants across the UK and can also be found at Tesco supermarkets where a 265g bottle will retail at £1.90.
According to the product description, the sauce has: “The creaminess of a mayonnaise. The spiciness of PERi-PERi. And now completely vegan! Use it as a slightly spicy dip for chips and crisps, or give a creamy bite to sandwiches and salads. Out of things to have it on? How about just a spoon…”
In a statement, a spokesperson for the brand said: “Tasting just as good as the original, Vegan PERinaise is the first plant-based substitute to be developed by the PERi-PERi connoisseurs, with vegans, flexitarians, and those taking on Veganuary encouraged to cover their veggie Nando’s favourites in the new sauce.
“The introduction of Vegan PERinaise will finally allow anyone opting for a plant-based meal to indulge in one of the brand’s most beloved condiments – whether in restaurant, or when creating the Nando’sNando’s experience at home.”
