Fast-food chain Burger King is launching a brand new vegan burger this Veganuary adapted from its popular Veggie Bean Burger.
While supermarkets are rapidly increasing their vegan offerings and high-street restaurants are competing to offer exciting new vegan menus, one sector that has been slow to embrace the plant-based boom in the UK is the fast-food sector.
McDonald’s is still yet to release a vegan burger here and KFC released a vegan chicken burger only to remove it and bring it back as a limited-edition menu option this Veganuary.
Keen to offer customers looking for vegan Burger King options something new to try, fast-food giant Burger King will be launching a brand new vegan burger this January.
The chain has adapted the recipe for its popular Veggie Bean Burger to make the Burger King classic 100% vegan and it will be available from 11th January.
The new sandwich includes two signature veggie patties on a toasted sesame seed bun, topped with fresh-cut lettuce, juicy tomatoes, ketchup and vegan mayo.
The Vegan Bean Burger will retail at around £4.59 on its own and around £5.59 with a drink.
Burger King previously launched a plant-based Whopper burger for Veganuary 2020, which featured a plant-based patty from The Vegetarian Butcher in place of beef.
However, vegans were disappointed to learn that the patty was cooked on the same grill as the meat burgers and were hesitant to try the new offering thanks to major cross-contamination risks.
