Go Vegan: Chipotle Plant Based Options

There is no question that a plant based diet is beneficial to your health and the planet and it’s starting to become apparent to corporate America that making the switch can also benefit their bottom line.

U.S. fast food chains are adding vegan options to their menus at a record pace which means more choices when you need a quick meal.

Chipotle, the Mexican fast food chain started in 1993 opened the Malibu outpost in 2012 in the Malibu Country Mart.

In 2014, Chipotle was an early entrant into the plant-based conversation, introducing its delicious, vegan protein option, Sofritas®. Only a few years later, 7.5 million pounds of Sofritas were cooked up in 2018 alone. Made from certified organic soybeans grown domestically, the protein is then shredded and smothered in a blend of spices including poblano pepper, cumin and of course, chipotle chile, creating a delicious alternative to traditional meat without skimping on flavor.

Hodo Foods, Chipotle’s soybean supplier, is also committed to food with integrity as the company partners with farmers in the Midwestern U.S. to buy non-GMO, organic soybeans that results in the highest quality plant-protein. “Chipotle’s founder first tasted our organic product in a California farmers market and together we collaborated to perfect Chipotle’s beloved Sofritas recipe incorporating fresh, delicious ingredients,” said Minh Tsai, founder of Hodo Foods.

On March 4th, 2019, Chipotle announced its “Plant-Powered” Lifestyle Bowl options, which includes a new preconfigured organic plant-based protein “Vegan” bowl as well as a “Vegetarian” bowl that includes guacamole. Plant-Powered bowls are the first extensions in the brand’s Lifestyle Bowl offering.
