Is Nandos Sauce Vegan?

Spread the love

Have you embarked on a vegan diet? Are you wondering whether you can consume Nandos sauces or if they are off the menu? Well, here is what you are going to be pleased to know.

So, is Nandos sauce vegan? Nandos sauces are vegan; this includes their Peri-Peri sauces and Marinades across all flavors and varieties. The only exception is Perinaise (which is made from mayonnaise/eggs). Thankfully, Nandos has introduced a Vegainaise alternative for this particular sauce.

In fact, Nandos as a restaurant chain is still a largely viable place for you to eat.

With caveats of course!

That being said, this particular restaurant chain is aware of the growing demand for vegan food and has started to make arrangements accordingly.

The sauces are even dairy-free and gluten-free, too (by the way)!

Let us now explore the options if you were to decide to eat in, or take away!

Is Anything At Nando’s Vegan?

Despite being a flame-grilled chicken-based and inspired restaurant, Nandos has expanded its menu and has included a number of vegan options.

The vegan options across the different components of the menu are as follows.

Nandos has a growing vegan menu.

While the sauces are naturally vegan by default, they are introducing new vegan menu items all the time.

And what’s more, they’ve made it really easy to see what menu items are suitable by indicating what food is ‘plant-based’ on their menu on their site!

So, look for this little icon:

Or alternatively, always ask a member of staff or better yet the manager!
