Veggie Pret has announced its biggest ever menu launch with 15 brand new vegan options packed full of whole foods.
Veggie Pret has announced its largest menu launch to date as it gets set to launch 15 new vegan options exclusively at Veggie Pret shops in London and Manchester on 21 January 2020.
Joining the menu tomorrow will be a new healthy selection of vegan Poké Bowls, Smoothie Bowls and Buddha Bowls to “offer more choice to customers throughout the day.”
Rather than using mock meats to mimic the flavours of meat, Pret is focusing on using fresh ingredients to ensure each dish is packed with flavour.
The new range of vegan Poké Bowls are a delicious more filing alternative to a salad and includes two tummy-pleasing vegan options such as the Sashimi-Style Watermelon Poké Bowl (£5.50). The vibrant bowl is filled with avocado, edamame beans, pickled cabbage, carrot, and radish and sashimi-style watermelon in place of tuna, finished with a tamari and ginger dressing and sesame seeds to add a delicious depth of flavour.
The Marinated Tofu Poké Bowl (£5.50) is a bold-flavoured option thanks to the addition of tofu marinated in tamari and ginger combined with garlic and chilli pickled cucumber, mango, and pickled cabbage.
Those looking for more interesting breakfast options on the go can now find five fresh and fruity flavours of smoothie bowls at Veggie Pret stores, priced from £3.75, as well as Apricot & Pistachio Overnight Oats (£3.25).
Flavours include Raspberry & Coconut, Acai & Almond Butter, Tropical Green, Cocoa, Nuts & Berries and Mango & Banana Sunshine.
Made from a blend of fruits, the bowls are topped with an array of nuts, seeds, fresh berries and nut butter.
Restore balance to lunchtimes with the new vegan Buddha bowls. Up for grabs is the Humous, Sweet Potato & Kale Buddha Bowl (£5.25), a healthy meal of brown rice with dressed kale and a dollop of Pret’s humous, mixed with roasted sweet potatoes, chipotle chilli sauce, avocado, almonds, and smoky carrot ribbons.
There’s also a lighter lunch option in the form of the new Sweet Potato Falafel Mezze Salad Bowl (£4.50) that comes with sweet potato falafel with chargrilled red peppers and a dollop of humous. The bowl is served with pickled cabbage and carrot, sliced cucumber and a pot of French dressing and finished with pumpkin seeds and fresh pomegranate seeds
Focus on flavours
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Pret’s Global Head of Food Innovation, Hannah Dolan, said: “This launch is an opportunity for us to establish Veggie Pret’s menu, offering customers something different to what they have seen so far.
“We wanted to put a real focus on creating new vegan dishes, so looked at where we could use vegetables and fruits to deliver flavour, rather than mock meat or fish.
“Perfect for customers taking part in Veganuary, or just trying to eat more plant-based food, we’d love to know what customers think and what they would like to see next from Veggie Pret.”
