Vegan Chipotle Expands

Chipotle brings its hugely popular meat-free garden blend to more than 15 of its Southern California locations.

On Wednesday, Chipotle announced that more than 15 of its Southern California locations now serve its vegan garden blend meat alternative. Previously, only three locations in California offered garden blend: two Los Angeles stores and one location in Sacramento. The long list of California locations now joins the burrito chain's Chelsea location in New York City, the Dupont Circle location in Washington, DC, and one of its Denver stores, in serving garden blend. The plant-based blend is made of wheat protein, soy protein, and fresh veggies marinated in Chipotle's adobo sauce and grilled separately from its meat items.
