How to Choose Vegetarian Sausages in the UK — Buying Guide

If you're not yet familiar with vegetarian sausages it can be a little confusing deciding which to go for, as there are so many options available. But fear not — in this guide we'll cover the basics of what to look for, based on your taste preferences, dietary requirements and, of course, appetite.

Are You Looking for a Meat Substitute or Something a Bit Less "Realistic"?

Are You Looking for a Meat Substitute or Something a Bit Less "Realistic"?

Perhaps you're a meat-eater looking to branch out and try some new plant-based substitutes, or maybe you want to add something substantial to a veggie meal — either way, there's a wide variety of sausages available these days, so you just need to decide how meaty you want to go


Some veggie sausages are so similar to meat-based options in terms of texture and taste that you may not be able to tell the difference. Many people love this, especially omnivores, and good meat substitutes can help to ease the transition whether for yourself or dubious family members. 


On the other hand, vegetarian (or vegan) bangers that don't try and imitate meat really taste like their own thing altogether in the most delicious way possible, and can be a better match if you're just not keen on the thought of faux meats

What Kind of Flavours Tickle Your Fancy?

There are so many different flavours, tastes and textures in the exciting new world of vegetarian sausages that it may be a little overwhelming to the uninitiated. Here are some of the most popular and piquant flavours available that are sure to have your tummy rumbling and your grill smokin'.

A Plainer, Classic-Style Sausage Will Go With Any Dish

A Plainer, Classic-Style Sausage Will Go With Any Dish

A plain sausage seasoned with herbs or pepper is an excellent choice, because of its absolute versatility. It'll be a great match for traditional dishes such as casseroles, stews, sausage and mash, or simply griddled as a side or in a hotdog.


The likeness to pork or beef sausages makes this type a very popular option with newcomers and lifelong veggies alike, not forgetting the fact that its subtle flavour goes with any seasoning from gravy to ketchup or even BBQ sauce.

Chorizo-Style Bangers Bring a Bit of Spice to Your Dishes

Chorizo-Style Bangers Bring a Bit of Spice to Your Dishes

Chorizo-style seasoning works brilliantly in vegetarian sausages — the combination of paprika, chilli, garlic and often red pepper creates an irresistible smokiness that some of you may be craving in a sausage substitute. 


If you regularly choose meat alternatives, chorizo-style sausages can make dinner that bit more exciting. Especially if you are into bold flavours and like to conjure up dishes like Spanish stews or Mexican tacos.  

Very Veggie Sausages Will Help Get in Your Five-A-Day

Very Veggie Sausages Will Help Get in Your Five-A-Day

There may be endless "realistic" veggie sausage options, but actual vegetable sausages still have their place amongst the Cumberlands, bratwursts, and Lincolnshires. Particularly if you're looking for something a bit more nutritious.


Beetroot is a popular ingredient, often blended with grains like quinoa for texture and veggies like spinach or carrot — for a healthy feast that counts towards your five-a-day. Roasted mushroom is another favourite, with a meaty texture and an umami flavour that tastes gorgeous with onion making it a great pick if you want something satisfying but aren't fond of the taste of meat. 

Choose a Product Based on Your Dietary Requirements

Choose a Product Based on Your Dietary Requirements

The great thing about vegetarian sausages is that they aren't just for vegetarians and omnivores! Not only are many of them vegan-friendly, but they often cater to other dietary requirements and many veggie sausages are gluten-free and soy-free too.


Some of our recommendations in this guide tick all the boxes, but be sure to read the label if you do have extra dietary requirements because vegetarian sausages that are vegan may not also be gluten-free, and some that don't include gluten may contain soy instead.

Top 10 Best Vegetarian Sausages in the UK

Hopefully, our tips have been helpful in aiding your quest to find your new favourite veggie sausage, so it's time to introduce our top 10 online buys. They're kind to animals, the planet, and your wallet, and they taste pretty scrumptious too!
