Accidentally Vegan Australia

Lots of what you already eat is vegan! 

Many well-known products are vegan purely by accident, and we’ve listed some of our favourites below… 

The More Obvious… 

  • Rice & pasta (dry): almost all dried pasta is made without egg and is therefore 100% vegan 
  • Baked beans & tinned spaghetti: varieties without cheese 
  • Spreads: Vegemite, jams, peanut butters, and even some chocolate spreads 
  • Bread: Most breads are naturally vegan  
  • Sauces & Condiments: tomato sauce and mustards are generally vegan, as are most hot sauces. Many mayos, aiolis, and others are too – just make sure they’re egg and dairy-free
