If you can't get hold of them or fancy something else, never fear! Linda McCartney Quarter Pounders, Fry's burgers and Vegetarian choice are some of the best known vegan burgers.
Ready to bake potato wedges are also widely available - either white, eg McCain's or the healthier sweet potato, eg Aunt Bessie's Sweet Potato Wedges. There are other brands around, including supermarket own-brands - most of these are vegan, just check the packet ingredients as ever!.
Sadly, ready-made vegan coleslaw isn't yet available but if you have time, grate a bit of white cabbage, carrot and mix in with thinned down vegan mayo - soya or other unsweetened plant milk works well plus a bit of salt and black pepper. Coleslaw is also good with a bit of chopped mild onion, eg spring or red. Or try our lovely Carrot & Beetroot Slaw
