Vegans, rejoice! As of next Monday (24th August), KFC is bringing back its famous Original Recipe Vegan Burger – with all the taste, crunch and succulence KFC is loved for, but completely meat-free.
After a brief hiatus, it returns as a permanent fixture to the menu in 73 restaurants UK-wide, with more to follow suit in the future. As before, meat-free fans can expect a bespoke Quorn fillet, coated in the Colonel’s iconic Original Recipe herbs and spices, topped with fresh iceberg lettuce, creamy vegan mayo, and housed in a soft glazed bun.
A KFC Spokesperson said: “Our vegan and flexitarian fans were sadly denied their favourite meat-free treat during lockdown, but now it’s back and it’s time to celebrate. Our kitchen teams having been working hard to adapt to the new safety measures in restaurants, but we reckon now is the right time to unleash one of our fan favourites. We can’t wait to reunite with our vegan friends – we’ve missed you!”
