Chipotle has added a new vegan option to its menu.

The 'Vegan' bowl is part of the chain's range of 'Plant-Powered Lifestyle Bowl 'options.

The meal features Chipotle's vegan protein option, Sofritas - which is also available in the UK. Sofritos are made from certified organic soybeans. The protein is then shredded and covered in a blend of spices including poblano pepper, cumin and chipotle chil.

More vegan options

"We've found that many people are increasingly looking for plant-based protein options, so we wanted to make it easy for our customers with digital shortcuts for these bowls," Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer of Chipotle, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

"Since introducing Sofritas five years ago, Chipotle has provided flavorful options for every lifestyle, while simultaneously doing something good for the planet."

The company may launch more ventures options in the future; it recently selected Sophie's Seafood, a plant-based seafood alternative, as one of the eight ventures in its Chipotle Cultivate Foundation's first accelerator program, Chipotle Aluminaries Project.
