Eating Vegan at Subway- The Options for a Delicious Vegan Sub

Share this Post!:

Subway is universally known as the place to go for a fresh, quick sandwich. Although still technically considered fast food, Subway is considered by many to be a healthier option than most comparable chains. Rather than filling up on a greasy burger and fries, you’ll chow down on a sub sandwich packed full of veggies and protein. However, even though Subway is touted as a healthy option, it’s still not catered to vegans, as many of its menu items include meat or dairy. Fortunately, the Vegan Unlocked vegan menu and editor’s picks make it easy to find the vegan options at this sub shop. Whether you’re craving a vegan patty or a crisp salad, Subway’s got it!

The Vegan Unlocked Research Team analyzed all 140 items on the Subway menu. We came away with a number of tasty on-menu options.

Subway has a score of 2.3 out of 5 stars with Few Options Available. Its menu may not have been created with vegans in mind, but you can find several menu items that will satisfy a sandwich-loving vegan. 

This score is calculated based on the amount of vegan offerings on Subway’s menu “as is” or with an easy substitution, a restaurant vegan customizability score and finally the amount of vegan options vs non-vegan options. Learn more about how Vegan Unlocked Ratings are calculated.
