We know it’s not hard to find vegan delights across the capital, but when Veganuary rolls around, the plant-based scene goes to a whole to level. A month when people are starting to embrace a new lifestyle, the vegan offerings throughout January get better each year. From an unmissable pizza to downright delicious burgers, here’s the hottest plant-powered collabs happening in London:

1. For Pizza: Yard Sale x Halo Burger 

The Lowdown: In celebration of Veganuary, Yard Sale Pizza has launched a plant-based cheeseburger pizza in partnership with beloved burger joint, Halo Burger. Additionally, as part of their Stuffed Crust Mondays, Yard Sale Pizza has created a very special vegan stuffed crust Margherita for January only.

Eat: You Had Me at Halo is a fully vegan creation featuring Beyond Meat burger patties, gherkins, melted American-style vegan cheese, vegan mozzarella, jalapeños and diced onions, finished with Halo Burger’s signature sauce. The mozzarella comes courtesy of Hackney-based vegan cheese purveyors I Am Nut Ok, which has been developed in direct collaboration with Yard Sale Pizza co-founder and director Nick Buckland to be the perfect melting mozzarella for pizza, and is used across Yard Sale’s signature vegan pizza offering.

2. For a Three-Course Menu: ManiLife x Le Bab 

The Lowdown: If you thought peanut butter was just for breakfast, think again. ManiLife has taken the world by storm with its insanely delicious range of peanut butter, and for January only,  the nut butter brand has teamed up with kebab kings Le Bab for a special three-course vegan menu.

Eat: For starter – roasted tenderstem broccoli florets, dressed with chilli and ManiLife Original peanut butter tahini, and for the main course: an umami-laden ManiLife Deep Roast peanut butter satay aubergine pitta. The menu finishes with a Chocolate brownie dipped in a ManiLife Original peanut butter and coconut cream.
