Pret A Manger has unveiled its spring menu featuring a new sandwich category of rye rolls with recipes inspired by classic flavours from around the world.

The Scandi Style Salmon Rye Roll combines Scottish smoked salmon with fresh vegetables and herbs on a layer of mustard mayo, with cucumber, served in a crusty barley and rye roll.

Inspired by its US shops, Pret is also introducing the New Yorker Rye Roll featuring British Pastrami, mustard mayo, gherkins and topped with a sprinkling of crispy onions, pickled cabbage & carrot and peppery rocket.

For vegetarians, the Aubergine Parmigiana Rye Roll (also available at Veggie Pret) aims to bring a taste of Italy to the UK with a red tapenade coated aubergine and shavings of matured Italian cheese, roasted tomatoes, fresh basil leaves and a sprinkle of cheesy roasted breadcrumbs, freshly baked in Pret kitchens every day in an effort to ensure they’re crunchy.

Accompanying the new rye rolls are the Sriracha Chicken Salad Wrap – made up of British chicken breast coated in sriracha sauce topped with carrot mooli slaw, fresh mint, coriander, spinach and cucumber and finished with a dab of miso mayo – and the vegan Aubergine Banh Mi Baguette – filled with roasted aubergine coated in tamari and ginger dressing on a layer of sriracha sauce, cucumber and topped with carrot & mooli slaw, fresh coriander and a sprinkle of crispy onions.

In addition, Pret has also announced the return of the vegan Smoky Carrots & Falafels Sandwich – made using sweet potato falafel with smoky carrot ribbons, gherkins, pickled cabbage and carrot with a layer of sriracha sauce. Also making a comeback is the Bakewell Slice, made of a shortbread base topped with a light almond sponge and raspberry jam, finished with flaked almonds.

“We hope that the new menu helps to highlight what makes Pret, Pret – and that is firstly, our dedication to always creating new products using the most delicious seasonal ingredients, taking inspiration from around the world and adding a Pret twist,” said Katherine Bagshawe, UK food & coffee director. “But also, our secret ingredient is including things that only Pret can do, by making things fresh in our kitchens every day, like the freshly baked cheesy breadcrumbs which are a real star of some of these products.

“I am confident our customers will love them and find new favourites this spring,” Bagshawe added.
