Popular US
fast food chain Shake Shack will roll out an easy-to-veganize burger at select
New York locations, starting next week.

The Veggie

The new
burger – which the chain is calling The Veggie Shack – features a plant-based
patty made from ingredients like black beans, rice, and beets.

Toppings include
a vegan ‘mustard mayo’, lettuce, onions, pickles, and cheese – which can be
removed to keep the burger fully vegan.

On trend

With this
move, Shake Shack joins a number of other fast food and casual dining chains to
debut vegan options in recent years, including TGI Fridays, White Castle, McDonald’s, and
Red Robin.

The new
burger will be available to consumers from April 19, at select locations
throughout New York.
