Sandwich chain Subway has debuted a new vegan 'steak' option in Finland.

The 'Vegan Delight' sandwich, which features the soy-based patty, is fully plant-based when paired with vegan toppings.

The patty was trialled during Veganuary - an initiative which encourages people to try a vegan diet during January - and is now a permanent menu item at 24 restaurants nationwide.

The soy-based patty, which includes red onion, red pepper, green pepper, carrot, spinach, corn, white pepper, pea, green chili, and garlic -  can be topped with a number of vegetables.

Finland's Subway locations also offer a variety of vegan-friendly sauces, and breads, which are also available with the easily veganizable ‘Veggie Delight’ - a vegetable-only sandwich available in countries including Canada, United States, and Korea.

On trend

Subway is just one of many major fast-food chains to add vegan options to its menu in recent years.

It joins major food outlets like McDonald's - which launched its McVegan burger across Finland and Sweden last year - and others including Red Robin, Domino's, and Panera Bread.
