Plant-based eater and Subway fan? You’re in luck. The sub sandwich franchise now offers a plant-based “meatball” marinara sub for those who want to indulge in the classic comfort food while respecting animals and the planet.
After thousands signed the WeLoveSubway campaign for more meatless menu options, Subway partnered with Beyond Meat to offer a new vegetarian meatball sandwich, which can be made fully vegan by omitting the cheese.
“This sub is literally going to save lives as more and more people choose it over traditional meatballs,” Cascada said. “And the good thing is, there’s really no difference in taste.”
The sub sandwich will be available for a limited time at participating restaurants beginning September 5 in the U.S. and September 9 in Canada.
Burger King’s “Impossible Whopper” was received so well, the company plans to roll it out to every location nationwide. Del Taco, Carl’s Jr., and other chains have followed suit by adding menu items with meatless proteins, too.
Thanks to companies like Subway, it’s easier than ever to maintain an animal- and planet-friendly diet and still satisfy those favorite food cravings.
