Vegan food isn’t all salads, hummus and tofu. Most vegans love junk food as much as the next person (french fries, anyone?!). And fast food is the perfect example; who doesn’t crave that drive-through deliciousness every once in awhile?
Fast food chains are adding plant-based options and vegan ordering guides, there are also plenty of DIY recipes you can whip up at home.
So there’s no need to miss McFlurries or Big Macs anymore — here are six vegan versions of some of your fast food faves.
McDonald’s Big Mac
The iconic double-stacked hamburger is even better when no cows are involved. The Edgy Veg’s two-patty recipe stacks up with its Big Mac counterpart.
Chick Fil A’s Nuggets
If you love those little nuggets the chicken chain is famous for, this vegan version from 40 Aprons will satiate your appetite. Made with tofu and complete with a vegan-mayo-and-agave-based “honey” mustard sauce, it’s everything you remember, sans the cruelty.
Taco Bell’s Crunchwrap Supreme
This ooey, gooey layered treat might be the best thing on Taco Bell’s menu. And while you can order a vegan version at the chain (sans cheese, sour cream, and meat) — it’s even better when re-created at home with all the indulgent ingredients.
McDonald’s Oreo McFlurry
You can recreate this ice cream treat without the dairy cruelty and using only three simple ingredients, thanks to this recipe from The Spruce. Get your cardboard cup and plastic spoon ready.
KFC’s Family Feast
If you’re feeding a family, a KFC-style family feast is sure to satisfy. This vegan version from Vegan Food Lover includes the fried chicken, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, biscuits, and gravy. Basically everything you need for a food coma.
Subway’s Meatball Marinara Sandwich
Nothing says satisfying like a foot-long sub piled high with meatballs, marinara, and cheese. That’s the gist of this sandwich from The Big Man’s World; his vegan version includes some sweet and spicy homemade meatballs and a cashew parmesan “cheese.”
