Vegan Meatball Marinara (Subway) By @Cinabar

Vegan Meatball Marinara (Subway)

My first disclaimer is that I’m not vegan, but as it is Veganuary I thought it would be good to try out one of the options at Subway, this Vegan Meatball Marinara. I had with it toasted vegan cheese and squirt of vegan aioli and my usual salad choices, I do love olives on everything subway. The bread was the paprika and chilli to give it warmth.
The sub itself isn’t that pretty on the inside, there were four vegan meatballs hiding in this sandwich but the combination of multiple sauces and salads meant they weren't easy to spot, it was a full but messy sandwich. This translated to the eating too, the sauce was keen to escape, and they only gave me one serviette! Oh well.

I have had the meat version of this sandwich many times before and have to say this was very similar, the meatballs felt very much like meat in texture. In flavour there was a little less beefiness, but they still tasted amazing, and it was a very enjoyable sandwich. I like the vegan garlic aioli sauce this went very well with the tasty Marina sauce all over the meatballs, the salad giving a nice crunch. The vegan cheese was a little bit lost but there was a lot going on with the contents. This was a filling and tasty sandwich and one that you could easily mistake for being meaty. I’m not sure if I would have noticed if I hadn’t been the one ordering it. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am impressed with Subway bringing out such a good vegan alternative without upping the price (it was priced the same as the meat version).
Seriously though Subway when you sell subs full of sauce like this give us an extra serviette, I can’t be the only one who’s fingers were coated. Dangerous to eat but oh so tasty.
