It’s no secret that it’s easy to get a vegan meal at Chipotle. It’s my favorite casual dining restaurant because I don’t feel like I am compromising by having a flavorless, boring meal or making anyone else compromise by having to eat the same food as me all the time.
Up until recently, eating vegan at Chipotle has meant simply ordering a meatless bowl, salad, burrito, or taco, without pinto beans (cooked with bacon) and without cheese or sour cream. It’s not a bad arrangement, either. The meatless option means free guacamole!
However, now California Chipotle locations are offering Tofu Sofritas as an alternative to meat and simply meatless meals.
According to their website,
“We start with organic tofu from Hodo Soy that we shred and then braise with chipotle chilis, roasted poblanos, and a blend of aromatic spices.
It’s no joke, either. Sofritas are filling and spicy and make for an awesome option that everyone can enjoy. Hopefully they will do well in California and Chipotle’s corporate heads decide to offer them at all of their locations across the US, the UK, Canada, and France.
Sofritas were ruled a success in test markets and plans are in place to make them an option at all Chipotle locations!
