Taco Bell has always strived to make it possible for vegetarian eaters to find delicious fast-food options on their menu. In fact, Taco Bell released a vegetarian menu back in 2019, but this year, they’re taking it a step further. Taco Bell is launching “Veggie Mode” for its self-service ordering kiosks. Essentially, customers will be able to switch their screens to Veggie Mode to see a menu of fully-vegetarian food items. Even better? 50 of these items are certified by the American Vegetarian Association.
Customers can also expect to see new vegetarian ingredients like hash browns, potato bites, and Chalupa shells.
Instead of having to customize your order, vegetarians will simply press the Veggie Mode button to see original Taco Bell menu items transformed into vegetarian-friendly meals. Here’s a look at a couple items transformed by Veggie Mode.
- Beefy 5-Layer Burrito → Layered Vegetarian Burrito
- Chalupa Supreme → Black Bean Chalupa Supreme
- Chicken Soft Taco → Black Bean Soft Taco
Per a press release, Missy Schaaphok, RDN, Taco Bell’s Global Nutrition & Sustainability Manager said, “We’ve been doing vegetarian for a long time, but that is not enough for us. People should be given more options than one plant-based choice.” She continued, “At Taco Bell, celebrating vegetarian is more than just a trend, it is something we do every day of the week. With Veggie Mode, we are proud to make it even easier to order plant-based options that vegetarians and non-vegetarians can agree are delicious.”
