Get your picnic rugs out and your cool boxes ready, because we have some delicious vegan picnic ideas to put on your radar. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or on a flexitarian diet, Birds Eye have you covered when it comes to filling your picnic hamper full of tasty vegan treats that everyone can enjoy.
Vegan Salad Recipes
There’s nothing like a refreshing salad to share with your friends while you enjoy the sunshine, so we’ve pulled together a few of our favourites for you to choose from.
You can give up the meat but don’t need to give up on that delicious crispy batter. Using our original Chicken Dipper Salad recipe as a guide, simply substitute the Birds Eye Chicken Dippers with our new chicken-free dippers from our Green Cuisine range.
Vegan Picnic Sandwich Ideas
Sandwiches and wraps are ideal for picnics. They travel well and are easy to eat with your hands, so they’re definitely one to add to the hamper. Simply wrap them up in some foil to keep them fresh.
Chicken nuggets don’t have to be for the kids only! Follow our chicken pittas recipe for some inspiration and simply substitute the chicken grills for chicken-free nuggets for a heavenly vegan creation. They’re the same taste and texture as our chicken nuggets, only powered by plants, so this dish will be a winner!
You’ve packed your sandwiches and prepped your salads, but why stop there? You always want a little something extra to nibble on, so check out the following classic picnic snacks to keep you satisfied.
Pair our Birds Eye Green Cuisine chicken-free southern fried strips with a classic BBQ sauce dip for the perfect picnic combo. Always a hit with the kids (and the big kids of course!)
Just as a heads up, the BBQ dip does include Dijon mustard, so you may want to replace this with a classic English mustard if your diet is free from animal products.
You can’t have a picnic without sausage rolls, and these delicious meat-free alternatives certainly won’t disappoint. Tasty on their own, or pair with your favourite sauce or dip, they’ll definitely go down a treat!
