FURIOUS vegans have panned a new Morrisons veggie version of the BLT — claiming: “It’s just a salad sandwich.”

The supermarket reckons its £2.20 CLT — carrot, lettuce and tomato — is perfect for those looking for a “twist” on the classic bacon, lettuce and tomato sarnie.

It says the “smoky carrot strips” are meant to replace the rashers.

A spokeswoman added: “It also includes tomatoes, lettuce and vegan mayo, all sandwiched between malted bread.”

However, vegans have branded the snack, above, a disgrace and  a mockery of the vegan lifestyle.

Stevie Shepherd wrote online: “Not to sound ungrateful but a salad sandwich? No wonder everyone asks where we get our protein.” Registered dietician Lizzy Entwistle added: “I can’t get excited about this. I feel it makes a mockery of ­vegans. Can’t have bacon? Here, have some carrot.”

Erin Caroline added: “This is such a letdown. Why can’t they make a hearty, delicious, on-the-go sandwich?”

A customer called Vicky wrote: “That’s the biggest disgrace of a sandwich I’ve ever seen.”


But not all veggie lovers were disappointed. Isabella, 21, hit back: “Please don’t knock it before you try it. The carrot does actually taste like bacon because of how it’s smoked and it’s absolutely ­delicious.”

Supermarkets and restaurants have been increasing their vegan choices.

Greggs’ vegan sausage roll hit the headlines, and now McDonald’s has a vegan range. Cardiff City recently became the first football league club with a full vegan menu at its ground.
