New vegan food at Pret
Pret a Manger has released some more vegan options so I’m doing my duty to let you know about them.
Cauli & Sweet Potato Dhal Hot Pot, £6.25 (vegan)
A warming, mildly spicy, coconut dhal, with chunks of roasted sweet potato, roasted turmeric cauliflower and baby plum tomatoes. Top it off with the pot of fresh spinach, toasted seeds and a squeeze of lemon.
Apple & Almond Butter Bowl, £1.99 (vegan)
Customers have been asking for more vegan snacks. Pret has kept this recipe nice and simple: crisp, green apple wedges with a generous dollop of almond butter.
Falafel, Avo & Chipotle Flat Bread, £3.99 (vegan)
Sweet potato falafel and freshly sliced avocado with a dollop of chipotle ketchup. Topped with pickled onions, crunchy red peppers, fresh coriander and charred corn and black bean salsa. Available in shops from Thursday 4th January until Monday 5th March.
Why has Pret stopped doing their red & green sandwich? It was really good. Lately most their vegan options have been considerably worse…. I have a chilli intolerance and hate cumin and its mainly been spicy stuff or stuff with cumin added. Been very disappointed with Pret last few months and tbh the above new options dont sound a fat lot better. When I asked in a Pret store why they’d dropped the red & green sandwich the reply was they just changed the menu. But they’d been doing that sandwich for ages and it had become a go-to staple. They wouldn’t drop a ham n cheese baguette or other non vegan staple would they?
I’ve tried the hot pot and it’s delicious – although I didn’t add the lemon because, yuk! LOL! But seriously, I highly recommend it (although it’s a little on the pricey side so will be only an occasional lunchtime treat for me!).
