Beetroot Falafel Burgers

The 'Beetnik' is Byron's First Vegan-Friendly Burger Option

— April 27, 2018 — Lifestyle
In order to better cater to the growingly diverse food scene in the UK, British restaurant chain Byron launched its first-ever vegan burger, dubbed the 'Beetnik.' The new plant-based burger patty takes the form of a beet-based falafel, which is topped with baby kale, smashed avocado and a lime-dressed rainbow slaw, as well as colorful items like tomato, pickled red onions and red pepper ketchup that all serve to add flavor and accent the color of the patty.

Prior to the launch of the Beetnik burger, the vegan-friendly options at Byron were limited to just fries, a house salad and tortilla chips. Like Byron, a number of eateries in the UK are expanding their restaurant menus in order to appeal to the growing demand for nourishing, plant-based options by vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
Trend Themes
1. Plant-based Burgers - The rise in demand for plant-based options is creating opportunities to develop innovative, flavorful burger alternatives that cater to a diverse range of dietary preferences.
2. Vegan-friendly Menus - Restaurants are expanding their menus to include more vegan-friendly options to meet the increasing demand for plant-based meals.
3. Colorful and Flavorful Ingredients - Using vibrant and flavorful ingredients like beet-based falafel, lime-dressed rainbow slaw, and red pepper ketchup can enhance the taste and visual appeal of vegan burgers.
Industry Implications
1. Restaurant - Restaurants can capitalize on the growing trend of plant-based burgers by offering a variety of vegan-friendly options to attract a wider customer base.
2. Food Manufacturing - Food manufacturers can explore new ingredients and technologies to create innovative plant-based patties that mimic the taste and texture of meat.
3. Food Retail - The popularity of plant-based burgers presents an opportunity for food retailers to stock a range of vegan-friendly ingredients and ready-made products for consumers looking for healthier and sustainable food options.
