Texas Chicken NZ is jumping on the plant based bandwagon with the introduction of its first ever plant based burger, the Vegetarian Texan.
The fast food chain, that prides itself on its juicy flavoursome chicken, is expanding its offering to entice new non-meat-eating customers. Available now, the Vegetarian Texan patty is made from pumpkin puree and carrot, as well as potato, spinach, onions, red pepper and herbs. And it wouldn’t be a burger without tasty cheese, crispy lettuce and a generous dollop of mayo and mustard.
General manager of Texas Chicken NZ, Tyler Stead, says the burger is the perfect option for those wanting to cut down on their meat consumption but still want a burger that packs heaps of flavour.
As more and more Kiwi customers have asked for plant-based options, it was important for the company to respond to that demand.
“Texas Chicken is well known for playing with fresh, bold flavours and our first ever plant-based burger follows that same tradition,” says Stead.
“We’re delighted with how the Vegetarian Texan has turned out and can’t wait to share it with everyone this week.”
Texas Chicken landed in New Zealand six years ago from the USA, providing Kiwis with its world-famous hand battered, 12 hour marinated, freshly cooked chicken and sides.
