Selected Greene King pubs are now offering a vegan menu, which includes a plant based fish and chips.
The pubs serve the Flaming Grill menu, and they have teamed up with V-Bites to offer pub diners a vegan alternative to the traditional seafood dinner. The ‘fish’ is V-Bites Making Waves fishless steaks, made from konjac, tapioca and wheat starch in a breadcrumb coating.
The full menu launched back in April, and features eight other vegan options, including a chickpea and sweet potato curry, Mexican bean burger, and super salad. Also included are three dessert options; cherry bakewell tart, chocolate and coconut torte, and Bramley apple pie.
In a press release, Greene King said: “Meat reducers and flexitarians can now enjoy the iconic traditional fish and chips, with a clear conscience as they enjoy the UK’s first truly sustainable “fish” made entirely from plant-based ingredients. The contaminants in our oceans are finding their way into the food chain. Through taste-obsessed development, the ‘Making Waves’ range proves some delicious, truly revolutionary alternatives to real fish, which look and taste the same, but without harming any fish, or our oceans, at all.”
The main courses on the vegan menu start from £5.99, with the vegan fish and chips priced at £6.49.
