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 Shack

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.

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