McDonald’s Vegetarian Menu 2023 (Mcplant Burgers, Pancakes, Hash Browns)

If you’re a vegetarian who’s ready for your next fast-food adventure, this article is bound to help you navigate McDonald’s vegetarian menu.

However, the vegetarian McDonald’s menu is a luxury that only residents of the UK get to enjoy in their local restaurants.

To answer the question “does McDonald’s have a vegetarian option in the USA” – the short answer, unfortunately, is no. if you’re from the States, you wouldn’t be able to find a dedicated menu with vegetarian options.

However, there are still certain items on the menu that you could happily pass as vegetarian options.

These items include their delicious ice cream that you get to order as a sundae, a McFlurry, or in a cone, and a McPlant burger with beyond meat.

Similarly, the egg McMuffin becomes vegetarian by forgoing the meat.

Then there are breakfast hot cakes, and certain breakfast pastries including apple fritters, and cinnamon rolls. 

Maple oatmeal with fruits and smoothies are a few other items that you get to order as a vegetarian at McDonald’s.

One thing to be noted is that not all McDonald’s vegetarian items can be considered vegan.

Only certain items are both vegetarian and vegan like their McPlant.

This is because such complex processes are prone to slow down the entire service.

McDonald’s Vegetarian Menu UK

If you’re hunting for vegetarian options at McDonald’s in the UK, these are some of the juiciest Mac items to enjoy.

Currently, three vegetarian burgers are featured on McDonald’s menu – McPlant, Double McPlant with double patties, and the vegetable deluxe.

Nestled between each of these buns are plant-based patties with beyond meat, and spicy veggie goujons.

You do get a certain diversity with veggie dippers, veggie wraps, fries, side salad, and multiple baked items from chocolate brownies to mixed berry muffins.

Hash browns, carrot sticks, pineapple sticks, and some porridges are part of the same deal.

The beverage choices, suited for vegetarians are quite interesting with several milkshakes, coffees, and juices.

Typically, different vegetables and greens (iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, etc.) are used as ingredients alongside beyond-meat patties, and spicy goujons, used as substitutes for meat.

McDonald’s does serve vegan cheese, and vegan sandwich sauce just for veggie lovers.

Enjoying fast food can be pretty scary sometimes, especially with its apparent threat to your health.

This is where McDonald’s vegetarian items enter into the equation, supporting healthy eating habits while letting you enjoy the best of the fast-food meals.

A vegetarian meal from McDonald’s is comparatively healthier than its meat option, helping to maintain your cholesterol and sugar levels.

Simultaneously, if you’re following a diet or trying to lose some weight, this menu is the ideal one to go.

Since less fat is always good for your heart health, McDonald’s vegetarian items are sure to help you with that.

If you’re wondering if McDonald’s vegetarian food contains lesser calories than its non-veg items, there isn’t much difference between the calorie count of each item.

Oftentimes, non-vegetarian options have slightly higher calorie counts.

But this does change sometimes depending on the ingredients.

For example, a hamburger contains fewer calories than a double McPlant with two patties.
