Taco Bell to add vegetarian menu
First reported by Foodandwine.com
- Taco Bell already offers a lot for the vegetarian customer. They are certified by the American Vegetarian Association and their customizable menu makes them vegetarian-friendly.
- Now, the Tex-Mex restaurant has a loftier goal for their plant-eating friends. They will be testing out a dedicated vegetarian menu, featuring some new items and vegan-friendly ones as well.
- Outside of that, the brand continues to search for higher food standards, such as using simpler ingredients, sustainable beef, and focusing on improving recycling.

It’s one of seen food quality, environmental, and corporate commitments the fast food chain is making in 2019.
Is there any bigger trend in fast food right now than appealing to vegetarians, vegans, and flexitarians? We’ve seen examples like the Impossible Burger landing at White Castle and the Beyond Burger launching at Carl’s Jr. Speaking of which, Del Taco now offers Beyond Meat options on its menu. And even Pizza Hut UK recently unveiled a vegan jackfruit pizza. Now, the already vegetarian-friendly chain Taco Bell has announced it wants to make an even bigger vegetarian push as part of its commitments for 2019.
“As the only American Vegetarian Association-certified QSR, Taco Bell has more than 8 million vegetarian combinations,” the brand reminds us in the announcement, “and there are plenty of gratifying meatless options from which to choose as well — enough to customize a new meal every day for nearly 20,000 years.” However, Taco Bell still believes more can be done, so the Tex-Mex brand has announced that later this year, it “will be testing its first, dedicated vegetarian menu in stores, as well as new featured vegetarian items to enjoy” which would include some vegan options as well. Could that mean that Taco Bell is in talks for a big plant-based partnership of its own? The company doesn’t say, though in the current climate, it certainly wouldn’t be surprising.
