Subway has always given other fast food restaurants a run for their money when it comes to offering options for vegetarians and vegans. However, now that the rest of the industry is stepping up with plant-based alternatives, Subway is testing out new menu items to stay ahead of the game. Starting at the end of the month, Subway will begin serving new Cauliflower Fritter Wraps and Cauliflower Dippers as a part of a test run. For a short time, the fritter-focused menu items will only be available at select locations in Baltimore, Maryland, and Seattle, Washington.
So, what’s the fuss about these fritters? The cauliflower fritters have the appearance of a hashbrown with the same crunchy, golden coating. They are filled with seasoned cauliflower, a light, yet savory alternative to the traditional potato. The dippers are sold separately and can be paired with any sandwich or eaten as a snack on its own.
As for the fritter wraps, customers can choose between two flavors, the Cauliflower Curry Signature Wrap and the Cauliflower Ranch Signature Wrap. The curry wrap starts with a spinach wrap and is filled with the signature Cauliflower Fritters, lettuce, red onions, green peppers, and banana peppers, drizzled with a curry sauce. Not up for so much zest? Try the ranch version with fritters, red onions, tomatoes, spinach, and jalepeños, topped with ranch sauce in a basil wrap.
In most cases, fast food restaurants will select a few cities to test out their new products before rolling them out to the rest of the country. So, here’s to eating more veggies in 2020 – fingers crossed we see the Cauliflower Fritter Wraps and Dippers roll out nationwide.
