The Tastiest Vegan Alternatives To Pepperoni & Chorizo

Pepperoni and chorizo are a type of cured, processed meat; this means that they have been modified to either improve the flavour or extend the shelf life.

Unfortunately, studies have shown links between consuming processed meat and certain forms of cancer, heart disease and diabetes; they contain all sorts of harmful, nasty chemicals that humans are better off avoiding! The good news is that vegan alternatives contain far fewer insidious ingredients, which means you don’t have to cut out your guilty pleasures completely. 

Whether you’re looking out for a meaty pizza topping or something tasty to liven up a dish, the following recommendations are ready to pique your interest!

Love Seitan - Pepperoni Seitan Chub 

Love Seitan was way ahead of the game and released the UK’s first-ever seitan pepperoni. They took the plunge and recreated a vegan version of everyone’s favourite pizza topping - heroes! They claim that this product will satisfy even the most diehard pepperoni enthusiast around. The only way you’ll find out is if you try it for yourself!

Quorn - Vegan Pepperoni Slices 

Quorn’s vegan pepperoni is perfect as a pizza topper, but you can also experiment with different ways of using it as it’s ready to eat straight out of the packet. Use it in sandwiches, wraps, chopped up on top of pasta, or eat it as it comes! They’ve got the iconic, smoky flavour down to a tee. 

Meatless - Meatless Pepperoni 

MeatLess’ pepperoni is high in protein, a good source of fibre and flavoured with a touch of paprika to give it that irresistible smoky spiciness. There are about 11 slices in one pack, and they’re even suitable for home freezing. 

Love Seitan - Seitan Pepperoni Slices

The UK’s first-ever seitan pepperoni also comes in slices to make your life easier! It’s also soy-free, which means it’s a great alternative for anyone with allergies. Love Seitan have done it again!

Wheaty - Spacebar Red Hot Chilli 

This Red Hot Chili Spacebar is the perfect savoury snack when you’re on the go. It’s got a hint of smoke and a spicy kick that will satisfy your craving for something meaty and umami. This product is also suitable for home freezing. 

Veganly Deli - Smokey Choreezo 

Veganly Deli claims that their product is just as deep and flavourful as non-vegan chorizo. This alternative is marvellously moist, spicy and smoky - everything you need in a cured meat. There are no preservatives or additives in this product either, but there is added B12 and organic hemp protein.

VBites - Pimenton Spiced Orizo Cubes

These VBites chorizo cubes are made from a blend of soy protein and seitan. The delightful smoky flavour is based on a traditional Spanish recipe using authentic pimenton spices. 

Wheaty - Chorizo Slices

These Wheaty chorizo slices are ready to knock your socks off! They’re umami, a little spicy, and can be eaten straight out of the pack. Of course, they wonderfully complement a vegetable paella and a generous glass of wine. This product is also suitable for home freezing.
