EAT. Released the New Mushroom Melt Meatless Sandwich

— September 13, 2019 — Eco

This hearty plant-based option features vegan smoked 'Gouda' cheese that's made from potato and coconut to mimics the texture and flavor of the traditional cheese. In addition, the Mushroom Melt includes mushrooms, caramelized onions, and vegan garlic mayonnaise atop a slice of toasted multi-seed bread.

The better-for-you Mushroom Melt sandwich is the perfect option to grab for lunch or dinner for consumers seeking to reduce their consumption of meat and dairy.
