By now, most of us know that vegan food is much more than just salads and pasta. People and restaurants alike are getting extremely creative with their vegan dishes, using unusual ingredients like banana skins or just re-imagining what a dirty burger can look like.
With lockdown 2.0 now upon us, we wanted to share some of the fun vegan food available on Deliveroo around the UK and help support these incredible businesses.
