Vegan at Chipotle? Here Are All the Plant-Based Menu Items
If you’re new to vegan eating, finding things to eat when you’re out with non-vegan friends or family can sometimes feel overwhelming. Luckily, many of your favorite chains offer delicious plant-based options, including Chipotle.
Chipotle is my go-to spot when I want to keep things simple. Fortunately, this chain restaurant has locations in most cities, is well-loved by many, and offers a bunch of plant-based ingredients to add to your burritos, tacos, and bowls!
Here are all the plant-based menu items at Chipotle:
• Corn and Flour Tortillas
All of Chipotle’s tortillas are vegan, so choose from corn or flour tortillas for tacos and burritos.
• White and Brown Cilantro-Lime Rice
Steamed with bay leaves, seasoned with lime juice, and garnished with cilantro, Chipotle’s rice is out of this world.
• Black and Pinto Beans
No vegan burrito would be complete without some yummy, protein-dense beans. Both black and pinto are seasoned with onions, garlic, and a blend of savory spices.
• Fajita Vegetables
A mix of caramelized red onions and bell peppers, the fajita veggies are seasoned with oregano, adding the perfect combination of sweet and savory to your dish.
In 2013 Chipotle introduced “sofritas”—an organic tofu option braised with chipotle chilies, roasted poblanos, and a blend of aromatic spices—to their menu in America. Now the company has announced plans to debut this offering at locations in the U.K.!
All of Chipotle’s salsas are vegan, so load up the flavor with fresh tomato salsa (mild), tomatillo red-chili salsa (hot), tomatillo green-chili salsa (medium hot), or roasted chili corn salsa (medium).
Made with fresh avocados, red onion, jalapeño, and cilantro, guacamole is loved by everyone. And if you’re skipping the sofritas, veggie burritos include the guacamole for free!
Made fresh every day, these bad boys are seasoned with a dash of lime and kosher salt. Try them with guacamole or your favorite salsas!
• Romaine Lettuce
No surprise here, but we did promise to include ALL the plant-based menu items. Plus, if you really love your greens, you can opt for a Chipotle salad! Just be sure to skip the vinaigrette.
Pushing for more animal-friendly menu options is a great way to make vegan eating easier for you and millions of other compassionate consumers. Please take a moment to ask Chipotle to add more vegan options to their menu! You can leave a message on their Facebook page here.
