Plant-based protein options are becoming all the more accessible these days, and we are totally here for it. The meat alternatives of today could fool even the strictest of carnivores, and they are much more sustainable than the agriculture industry’s products. Yesterday, the healthy and delicious restaurant franchise, The Chopped Leaf, released news of an exciting new partnership with Beyond Meat, just in time for Earth Day. The Beyond Beef Crumble will now be a permanent protein option on The Chopped Leaf menu across Canada.
Beyond Meat’s plant-based proteins are designed to deliver the same juicy, meat-like taste and texture as animal-based meat but as a healthier option for meat-eaters, flexitarians and plant-based eaters alike. Not only are these products great for human health but also for the health of the planet. Beyond Meat’s products are made from simple, plant-based ingredients, like peas and brown rice, without GMOs, bioengineered ingredients, soy or gluten.
New Menu Items Going Beyond Our Expectations
The Chopped Leaf has also announced the addition of two, limited-time items to their chef-designed menu. The Beyond Green is a salad that is reminiscent of bruschetta, just deconstructed and upgraded. Beyond Meat crumble, chopped mix, red onions, quinoa, grape tomatoes, olives, crunchy pita chips, basil and the signature balsamic vinaigrette dressing come together to make this delicious salad. The Beyond Grain bowl is a zesty blend of Beyond Meat crumble, warm basmati rice, romaine, cheddar cheese, jalapenos, corn, red onions, guacamole and ranch dressing. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to get our hands on these new dishes!
“We know our customers come to expect quality and taste from our brand, but what is on the rise is their search for plant-based protein options on our menu,'” said Blair Stevens, Founder of The Chopped Leaf. “We have acknowledged this, and we are thrilled to partner with a company who offers a great-tasting product; one that is globally respected. We look forward to working with Beyond Meat, a leader in plant-based protein, to expand our menu offerings to attract consumers who are either plant-based themselves, or flexitarians looking to integrate more plant-based options into their diets.”
