Vegan at Chipotle

Posted on

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.

Thank you, Chipotle!

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.

The result is a delicious, spicy tofu that will give vegans and carnivores something they both will love.”

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!

Dual Dining – Burgers

Eric and I had a super easy dinner of burgers and veggies one night last week.  He had a turkey burger and I tried out a Gardenburger Black Bean Chipotle patty.

I topped it with a little buffalo sauce and it was spicy and tasty.  I think next time, though, I will attempt a vegan patty recipe myself.

Overall it was a simple, very quick dinner that satisfied us both.
