Oat-Based Vegan Meat Hits Menus At Taco Bell

by | December 13, 2019

International fast food chain Taco Bell has added an oat-based vegan meat dish to select restaurants in Europe.

The new creation — the Oatrageous Taco — is a crunchy taco with a vegan meat filling, made from a combination of oats and legumes. It is topped with chipotle sauce, dairy cheese, and lettuce — but can be made vegan by ordering without the cheese.

The plant-based meal first appeared in Finland and has since been launched at locations in Spain. The chain plans to offer the taco at its restaurants all across Europe in 2020.

On the subject of whether the oat-based dish could feature at all 7,000 Taco Bell locations in the US, Steven Gomez, Director of International Product Development, said “never say never.”
