Following the announcement that White Castle has begun offering sliders made with the vegan-friendly 'Impossible Burger' patties, Shake Shake has announced its own meat-free creation dubbed the 'Veggie Shack.' With a growing number of consumers cutting back on their meat consumption or going fully vegetarian, the new burger helps Shake Shack compete in a changing fast food landscape.
The Veggie Shack is a meat-free creation that is currently being tested at select locations in New York City. The burger consists of a meatless patty made from a combination of black beans, brown rice, and roasted beets. For added flavor, the patty is topped with lettuce, white onion, pickle chips, provolone cheese, and a vegan-friendly mustard-mayonnaise sauce.
While the Veggie Shack is the first official veggie burger from the chain, consumers can also opt for the existing Shroom Burger, which features a stuffed portobello mushroom.
