Sandwich chain Subway has debuted a new vegan ‘steak’ option in Finland.

The ‘Vegan Delight’ sandwich, which features the soy-based patty, is fully
plant-based when paired with vegan toppings.

The patty was trialled during Veganuary – an initiative which encourages people to try a vegan diet during January – and is now a permanent menu item at 24 restaurants nationwide.

Vegan patty

The
soy-based patty, which includes red onion, red pepper, green pepper, carrot,
spinach, corn, white pepper, pea, green chili, and garlic – can be topped
with a number of vegetables.

Finland’s
Subway locations also offer a variety of vegan-friendly sauces, and breads,
which are also available with the easily veganizable ‘Veggie Delight’ – a
vegetable-only sandwich available in countries including Canada, United States,
and Korea.

On trend

Subway is
just one of many major fast-food chains to add vegan options to its menu in
recent years.

It joins major food outlets like McDonald’s – which launched its McVegan burger across Finland and Sweden last year – and others including Red
Robin
, Domino’s, and Panera Bread.
