Burrito and nacho joint Tortilla has launched a ‘game-changing’ vegan chili.

The brand has partnered with London startup Club Cultured to debut the dish in time for World Vegan Month.

Its Chili No Carne is made with organic tempeh and is blended with pinto beans, veggies, and ‘authentic spices’. 

The dish is available at select Tortilla outlets throughout November in cities such as Brighton, Birmingham, Bristol, and London. 

‘A nutritious vegan option’

Martyn Clover is Tortilla’s Head of Food. In a statement sent to PBN, he said: “We’re all about real ingredients, fresh flavours and doing things from scratch.

“Developing a nutritious vegan option that didn’t incorporate processed ‘fake’ meats was key.

“Tempeh is extremely versatile. We knew from the reaction of those who tried the first test batches… Vegans and meat-eaters alike, that we were on to a winner!”

Increased demand

Harry is Club Cultured’s co-founder. He told Plant Based News the collaboration as resulted in the company’s tempeh production soaring by 20 percent.

He added: “We have no doubt Tortilla fans will love the chilli. We’re geared up to expand when the product goes national!”
