Chipotle recently introduced a meat alternative at its Chelsea location in New York City. The burrito chain’s first vegan option made its debut in October at its Dupont Circle location in Washington, DC. The new menu item—dubbed “garden blend”—was created by the restaurant and is made of wheat protein, soy protein, and fresh vegetables, then marinated in Chipotle’s adobo sauce and grilled. The company is currently testing the new product in these two markets, and although there are currently no plans to expand the garden blend, a representative from Chipotle says feedback has been overwhelmingly positive so far. Consumers who want to see a vegan option on their local Chipotle menu can contact the company to voice their opinion.
