Meat-Free Fast Food Options

Fast food joints are offering more meatless options.  The new one this month is Burger King’s “Impossible Whopper.”  So the website Foodbeast posted a list of a few other vegetarian options that are out there.  Here are some of the best . . . 

– Taco Bell’s 7-Layer Burrito.  It’s been a go-to option for vegetarians since 1993.  It has beans, rice, guacamole, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, and sour cream.  So it’s pretty filling, and clocks in at about 500 calories.  (Taco Bell’s beans aren’t made with lard.)

– Five Guys’ Custom Grilled Cheese.  You can put any of their toppings on it, like grilled onions or grilled mushrooms.  So it’s not just cheese-and-bread.

– Wendy’s’ Cheese Baked Potato.  They don’t consider it an entrée, but it can be if you pile enough toppings on there.  One potato is about 450 calories.

– The Beyond Famous Star at Carl’s Jr.  It’s another plant-based burger that came out in January.  It’s made with Beyond Meat, which uses peas instead of soy.  And it’s cooked on an open flame, so you still get that charbroiled taste.  (Foodbeast)
