Vegans can, once again, look forward to tucking into the KFC vegan burger, as it will soon be back on the menu at selected stores.

From Monday 24 August, the fast food chain is bringing back its original recipe vegan burger to outlets where it was most popular.

After a brief hiatus, the vegan burger returns as a permanent fixture to the menu in 73 restaurants UK-wide - and KFC has promised that more plant-based options will be coming to its menu in the future.

What is on the vegan burger?

    As before, meat-free fans can expect a bespoke Quorn fillet, coated in the famous original recipe herbs and spices, topped with fresh iceberg lettuce, vegan mayo, served 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.”

    Fans of the 80 piece popcorn chicken sharing bucket can also look forward to its return on Monday 24 August.
