10 of the cheapest vegan meals

» 10 of the cheapest vegan meals

In honour of Fresher’s Week, we give you 10 of the best value vegan meals in comparison to their non-vegan counterparts.

The question of whether vegan substitutes are cheaper than meat-based
meals has been a subject of debate, particularly when government
subsidies to livestock farmers keep costs low. However, despite this,
we’ve found that UK supermarket prices still tend to favour the
plant-based eater when it comes to cooking. 

This is good news for students, who often have access to a wide range
of supermarkets as well as health food shops in their town or city of
study. A recent poll [1] found that 18% of students heading to
university this year are contemplating going vegan – a huge figure when
you consider that no more than 1% of the UK population are currently
vegan. Given that the same poll found that 90% of students worry about
their budgets, it’s clear that ethical eating at university needs to go
hand in hand with counting the pennies.

Thankfully, you don’t have to choose between one and the other, as our
comparison of eight student staple dishes, listing the average price [2]
of the meal or protein element, demonstrates. Cheap enough to go vegan
on your student loan? Absolutely. We’ve done it!

1) Vegan spag bol

You can always healthy up this classic with a handful of frozen veg
from a cheap £1 or less bag. Maybe you’ll even be able to splash out on
fresh veg when you consider that a 400g bag of vegan supermarket soya
mince costs £1.50 - £2.05 compared to a 400g bag of beef mince, costing
in at £3.45. With those sorts of savings, you could afford gourmet vegan mince from Holland and Barrett!

2) Mixed bean fajitas

This one’s a no-brainer: chicken fajitas would set you back £4 for 400g, while a can of mixed beans is a mere 60p or less.

3) Falafel Wrap

Whether you’re making it yourself, sourcing it from a take away or picking up Tesco’s version, falafel wraps are the same price or cheaper than non-vegan wraps. 

Get the vegan recipe here.

4) Jacket potato and beans with spoonful of fortified nutritional yeast

Fortified nooch is a versatile and nutritious cheese replacer – while you can get nutritional yeast from Amazon
for a fair price (averaging out at 23p per dessert spoonful compared to
33p for a small handful of dairy cheese) you can find it cheaper in
some health food shops and at Suma
when you buy wholesale. Why not start up or join a student co-op at
university, and get all the cost-price nutritional yeast you desire?

5) Sweet potato, chickpea and spinach curry

This easy-peasy (add a drop of) lemon juice squeezy recipe only costs
£1.85 for the spinach, chickpeas and sweet potato, while a chicken
version would see the price double. 

Get the vegan recipe here.

6) Lentil shepherdless pie

This winter comfort-warmer is much better without the actual lamb,
costing £3.75 for 400g. Instead, red lentils are the perfect
replacement, with 400g ringing in at a mere 90p.

Get the vegan recipe here.

7) Veggie burgers

When buying straight from the supermarket shelves, veggie burgers
out-compete quarter pounders not just in ethics, but in price:
£1.50-1.70 for a pack of 4, compared to £2.65. 

Making them yourself is cheap and cheerful too: get the recipe here.

8) Instant noodles


A classic. But did you know that own brand noodles in supermarkets like
Lidl and Sainsbury’s are generally cheaper and vegan-friendly? There
you can find noodles for 20-30p each compared to Batchelor’s (non-vegan)
Super Noodles costing at least 50p.

You could also use these noodles to make a stir fry. Most supermarkets sell packets of ’stir-fry veg’ for around £1 
(and they’re more than 1 serving) so you could fry these with the cooked noodles, and add a stir fry sauce too!

9) Vegan chilli

Vegan Chilli

You can make your own
vegan chilli from scratch with cheap ingredients, or you can even buy a
can of mixed beans in chilli sauce from the supermarket for around 65p.
You can add soya mince (£1.25 for a large bag compared to £2 for beef
mince) to the bean chilli if you wish, and serve with rice.

10) Vegan mac and cheese

Vegan Mac and Cheese

Simply cook some macaroni pasta (or any pasta you wish) and add homemaade vegan cheese sauce!
Who knew you could make a cheesey sauce out of just vegetable and nutritional yeast? Healthy,
delicous, and cheap!

Need more tips? A favourite trick of budgeting vegans is to head to the
fruit and veg stall at the local market just before closing, or a local
supermarket at about 8pm to pillage the reduced section of the veg
isle, and typically get a week’s worth of food for under a tenner.
Really strapped for cash students have also been known to bin-dive.
Happy [vegan bargain] hunting!

your own dahl is quick, easy and cheap! Sautee garlic and cumin seeds
in a little bit of water. Add rinsed red lentils and water and some
broth powder or cube (vegan, of course). Add in diced tomatoes and some
kale or other green leafy veg. Add salt if needed. Once the lentils are
soft, about 20 minutes, you are good to eat. Enjoy with brown or white
rice, or pita. One of my go-to meals that I serve to company.

    Glass Slime AKA: Clear Slime

    Glass Slime AKA: Clear Slime

    Yep, we have another Slime Recipe for you today.  We’ve made Fluffy Slime which has a “floam-like” consistency.  Years ago we made the “original” slime recipe using
    Borax.  But with all the hype about Borax in the news, we like making
    slime without it.  So today we bring you… Glass Slime, or Clear Slime.

    Please tell me it’s not just me who has a
    daughter that is absolutely obsessed with slime.  She and her friends
    make it all the time.  She even has a little side business and sells it
    to classmates.  Pretty clever if you ask me.

    This recipe is easy and doesn’t take too many ingredients.

    Glass Slime AKA: Clear Slime

    Mix the baking soda, water and glue until
    completely combined.  Slowly start adding the contact solution, a
    little bit at a time.  Stir after each addition.  When it’s almost the
    consistency that you want, start mixing by hand.

    Glass Slime AKA: Clear Slime

    The hardest part of this recipe is
    letting the slime sit for a few days.  It needs to settle to become
    clear.  This is what it looks like after stirring.

    Glass Slime AKA: Clear Slime

    And after it sits for a few days.

    Glass Slime AKA: Clear Slime

    The part that my daughter loves about this slime recipe?  It looks so cool!

    Glass Slime AKA: Clear Slime


    • One bottle school glue
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 1/4 cup water
    • Contact lens solution


    1. Pour the glue in a bowl.
    2. Add the baking soda and water and mix until combined.
    3. Slowly
      add contact solution until it it the consistency you want. Be careful
      not to add too much. It will turn out more like silly putty if you do.
    4. Place in an airtight container and let sit for two days. Slime will be clear after sitting.

    MYOM: Make Your Own McRib

    The McDonald’s McRib season comes only once a year, but you can MYOM at home year round.

    Posted Jul 6, 2020

    Even if you’ve never actually eaten a real McRib, you’re probably aware
    of the cultural phenomenon. Each year, usually in the fall, McDonald’s
    announces a limited-time release of McRibs coming to a select 10,000
    franchises — hopefully, one near you.

    If you’re wondering which McDonald’s locations, visit a superfan’s website dedicated to answering that question: McRibLocator.com.
    (At the time of publishing, the most recent McRib had appeared on May
    2, 2020, at 9:38 p.m. in Rosemont, California. Thanks, Victor Morales,
    whoever you are!)

    All of this is to say — McRibs are a thing. In a post-modern academic meditation on the allure of the McRib, Ian Bogost, a writer for The Atlantic, suggests
    we don’t just experience the McRib as something to eat, but also “as
    marketing campaign, as cult object, as Internet meme.” Our desire for
    the sandwich is high, it’s availability limited, it’s fans — obsessed.

    Sometimes, though, a BBQ pork sandwich is really just that.

    What is the McRib made of, anyway?

    What is it, then, about the McDonald’s McRib sandwich? It’s essentially a
    “rack” of boneless pork seasoned with liquid smoke, slathered in
    McDonald’s barbecue sauce, and topped with sliced onions and pickles,
    all on a hoagie-style bun. Think of it as a riff on the pulled pork
    sandwich, an American BBQ classic.

    (Real talk: The McRib has no ribs. The rib-esque patties from McDonald’s are made primarily of pork trimmings.) 

    The history of the McRib

    Back in 1981, during a chicken shortage, McDonald’s needed an
    alternative to its smash hit, Chicken McNuggets. Hence the pork

    The McRib itself wasn’t exactly a success. McDonald’s
    pulled it from the menu after four years due to disappointing sales.
    When it re-emerged on occasion, beginning in earnest in the 2000s, its
    limited-time aspect gave it renewed appeal. Then, once social media
    arrived, there was no stopping it. #McRibSZN.

    How to make your own McRib

    If McRibLocator.com
    shows no restaurants near you serving the sandwich (and it’s not even
    close to November), or if you’re a DIY kind of person, you can MYOM.

    There are a handful of copycat recipes out there, some more stylized,
    some less. The original McRib recipe, which, at one point, featured more
    than 70 ingredients (some of dubious origin), is not something you can
    easily reproduce in a home kitchen. Don’t worry, though, the internet
    has solutions.

    Here are four different ways to do it:

    Al Roker’s copycat McRib sandwich

    Simple and straightforward. Back in 2013, Al Roker showed Today
    fans how incredibly easy it is to make your own McRib at home. Live, on
    the show, he placed a pound and a half of pork shoulder in a food
    processor with simple seasonings — just sugar and kosher salt — and a
    bit of water. He then shaped the ground meat into rectangular pork
    patties, which he indented to make “ribs.” Roker browned frozen patties
    in a pan, then finished them with barbecue sauce — Hunt’s, preferably —
    in the oven for a few minutes. In the same pan as the patties, he
    brought the hoagie rolls to a golden brown, placed one “rack of ribs” in
    each and added raw onion and dill pickle slices, and an extra dollop of
    sauce. Delish.

    The Ultimate Homemade McRib (Smoked-Rib Sandwich)

    J. Kenji López-Alt takes a completely different approach — with each
    element, from the sauce to the hamburger buns and the pickles, made from
    scratch. “This is not a simple weeknight recipe,” he warns in the
    instructions for Serious Eats.
    Oh, but it is worth it. The real smoked rib meat—dusted in a custom dry
    rub and slathered in a homemade sauce—is combined with pork shoulder
    and ground into patties. Grilling them adds yet another layer of smoky
    flavor. For the truly ambitious, there are also steps for DIY dill
    pickles and homemade cemita buns.

    Copycat McRib Sandwich

    The Spruce
    lets its McRib veer “ribbier” with real baby back rib meat pulled off
    the bone — no patty in sight. This recipe probably resembles its
    McDonald’s counterpart the least. However, it comes closest to what must
    have been the inspiration for the recipe back in the 1940s when
    McDonald’s was still just a roadside barbecue joint in San Bernardino,

    Slow Cooker McRib Sandwiches

    These sandwiches also boast real baby back ribs, done in a slow cooker
    to make it easy. One of the features of this particular McRib recipe
    from Dinner Then Dessert
    is the flavorful copycat McDonald’s BBQ sauce, which comes together on
    the stove in less than 15 minutes. What sets this recipe apart are some
    of its ingredients: black pepper, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, brown
    sugar, ketchup, onion powder, garlic powder, white onions, and hoagie
    sandwich rolls.
