As veganism becomes a more socially accepted lifestyle choice for consumers aiming to stir clear of meat and animal by-products, popular fast food chains such as Wendy's are adding vegan-friendly takeout options for consumers to enjoy -- among them a burger that contains a meat-free black bean patty.

The Black Bean Burger is a new addition to Wendy's menu as the first vegan option the fast food chain has offered. The meal offers a protein-packed patty made from black beans, peppers, corn, carrots and spices that is offered on a vegan bread bun and can be served without cheese or dairy condiments.

The turn to vegan-friendly meals allows eatery chains to target much larger demographics with more inclusive fast casual menus that span a variety of dietary restrictions.
