Quick-service restaurant (QSR) Quesada Burritos & Tacos has partnered with Beyond Meat, a plant-based food-service company in California, to develop the new Beyond Meat Burrito.
The in-house recipe is made using Beyond Meat’s Feisty Crumbles, a pea protein, and Habanero pepper. The dish can be customized using Mexican slaw, guacamole, and salsa, among other toppings.
“More of our customers are identifying as flexitarians and requesting plant-based options, so we’re thrilled to be Canada’s first Mexican chain to offer the Beyond Meat Burrito,” said Steve Gill, Quesada’s founder. “Beyond Meat’s Feisty Crumbles perfectly replace animal protein with plant protein that’s juicy and satisfying to anyone, no matter their dietary preferences.”
Quesada launched its first vegan-friendly option, an ancho-braised tofu burrito, last December.
