– Is really no problem at all!
This photo speaks for itself. I mean… wow! So many vegan options in basically every food store you go to. Weather it is Hagkaup, Krónan, Nettó or Bónus!
Here is a list of some of the vegan food, that I’ve run into – in Iceland. There’s even more than what I mention here. So much that I couldn’t keep track. Of course they also have a lot of vegetables, fruit, beans and nuts in every food store in Iceland which you can of course easily survive on solely. We all know how to do that and which basic products are vegan. Therefore my focus will be on vegan specialties… such as plant-”milk”, -”cheese”, -”butter”, ”ice-cream” etc.
There is plenty of plantmilk and plantcocomilk to choose from in Hagkaup
Vegan daiya “cheese” in mozzarella and cheddar style (melts and is good for pizza, lasagna etc.) and cream cheese (good on bread or in a pasta dish) 849 ISK each
They also have Naturli’ plantspread butter. Violife and Astrid och Aporna.
1000 % plantbased butter for 495 ISK and more “cheese” and cream “cheese”… this time from the brand Sheese, for 499 ISK each.
There is a “regular” round slice cheese with different types of flavor
Cream cheese for bread etc. also with different types of flavor: chilli, garlic, cheddar and more
The bread is made of spelt (which I prefer). It can be bought in almost every foodstore in Iceland, incl.Hagkaup and Bónus
This is Tartex made out of herbs. It is delicious on bread! I only found this type “herb”, but they also make Tartex with chilli, garlic and herb and more flavors. Want a “beef”?
There’s a lot of vegetable beefs to choose from. This one is made in Iceland with chilli. They also have broccoli, chickpeas and other types of beefs.
To the left you see some “beefs” from Iceland and to the right, some from other countries – “beef” and “meatballs”
Yummi … a quick vegan burger with chilli chickbean beef, spinach, tomatoes and cucumber The dressing: Sheese cream ”cheese” mixed with barbecue sauce and organic red pesto
You can always go nuts!
Or drink a delicious smoothie…..
There is a lot of smoothies and juices with with different kind of flavors in almost every food store you go to
Organic vegetable juice…. or some just some chips!
Pringles are so good to those who choose vegan – they’ve made a check box… orange check… means its vegan!
Bugles ORIGINAL – is vegan
There are plenty of vegan chips – this is just of some of them
Bónus (discount foodstore):
Do you have a sweet tooth?
This is a cinnamon bread with caramel and it’s sooooo good ❤ You can find this in Bónus and it’s called: “karamellu snúður” (the one with chocolate is not vegan!) I love to drink a Rice Dream Chocolate with my caramel bread
I also found organic Red Pesto in Bónus – and a lot of other organic products too And local vegan ”beef” and swedish vegan ”meatballs”
Check out even more vegan products in Iceland here
Has all the ‘*Tartex” veggie spreads (for bread etc.) mmmmmh.
They also have almond, rice and soy milk – to name a few. And a lot of vegetable juice and smoothies as well.
And Nettó also has Violife cheese. Yummi! They have a lot of different types… and of course also the pizza cheese which melts so good!
It seems that most Icelandic food stores are pretty up to date regarding vegan products 🙂
So go to Iceland vegans… and enjoy the beautiful nature and delicious vegan food ❤
EATING OUT – VEGAN STYLE
I really want to mention theese following places.. since they all have delicious vegan food to offer.
“Saffran” has vegan pizzas with vegan cheese. Just ask to get the vegan cheese on your pizza instead of the regular. It’s not on the menu, but they have it!
“Serrano” vegan salads, wraps and sandwiches. They’ve put up vegan signs to make it really easy. Here you can find Serranos places: http://www.serrano.is/stadirnir/ – to type into the GPS
“Ìslenska Flatbakan” has vegan cheese and soft breadsticks with melted vegan cheese inside (www.flatbakan.is/)
“Pizzan” has vegan pizzas with vegan cheese (www.pizzan.is)
“Gló” has a lot of vegan food on the menu and a really delicious salad bar… like… level 10 salad bar ! (www.glo.is/)
“Tokyo Sushi” has the best vegan sushi in Reykjavík
Remember to check out HappyCow
A webpage and app that makes it so easy to find vegan places all over the world. There are plenty more vegan dishes to be found there. Since again, it was hard to keep track because of the many many options in Iceland. So head over to HappyCow and check out all the awsome places in Iceland!
Check this trip adviser for green options when eating out in Reykjavík I’m sure most of them can make vegan food 🙂 look forward to try some of them out next time.
I used most of my time studying and going out in the nature with my own food with me this time 🙂 So I was pleased that it was sooooooo easy to get vegan products in every store I went to. Yeeeei!!!!!
HUPPU (Ice cream store)
I went to the one at Eyravegi 3, Selfoss and got some sorbet ice
They had sorbet with ”wild berries” ”strawberry” and ”lemon” taste
Here is my pictures from some of my trips to Iceland
