The Great Pretender Protein

Our high protein, plant-based chicken alternative, the Great Pretender Protein is made from wheat and pea protein and has a very similar texture to a chicken patty, including colour and juiciness, and even caramelises and smells like meat when being grilled. For full Nando’s flavour, the Great Pretender Protein is basted in your choice of PERi-PERi.

Did you know you can swap chicken for the Great Pretender Protein in any burger, wrap, pita, main salad or paella for just $1 extra? That’s right! Thanks to our flexible menu, by making a few easy switches when ordering you can make your meal fully plant-based.

The Great Pretender doesn’t contain any animal products but is cooked on the same grill as meat products, so may not be suitable for everyone.

Sauces and dressings

Line Ascending

Our PERi-PERi sauces, bastings and PERi-Salt are all made without animal products so you can get a plant-based feed with full Nando’s flavour.

When dining in, you can also load your plate with tomato sauce and balsamic vinegar but steer clear of the Trio of Bell Pepper as this dressing contains egg and milk. Please be aware, our PERinaise also contains egg.

If you’re shopping the grocery aisle, along with our PERi-PERi sauces and PERi-Salt, our Rubs and Bag & Bake products are also free from animal products.

Still unsure? Check out our handy allergen guide or see the nutrition panel on all our PERi-PERi grocery products.

Our bastings don’t contain animal products, but our brushes and utensils are used on meat products, so may not be suitable for everyone.
