Vegetarian "chicken" in US chains

Varla | May 29, 2010 02:06 PM

Fast food places in some other countries started serving veggie burgers years ago, and eventually the USA caught up. So now, fast food chains in the UK, India, and Canada have started carrying vegetarian chicken patties and/or nuggets...and I'm really hoping the trend will carry over to the US. Apparently, even KFC in Canada serves veggie chicken sandwiches. Maybe KFC, Burger King, or Chick-Fil-A here will one day do the same?

There's so many vegetarians in the US, for health, ethical, or religious reasons. And as grateful as I am to have veggie burgers popping up all over the place (Red Robin, Burger King, Subway, etc.), sometimes I want something different. If anyone agrees, feel free to write the chains and companies like Boca and Morningstar Farms to let them know!

On a similar note, any veggies visiting Montreal should check out one of the LaFleur fast food joints. They have veggie dogs, veggie burgers, and even veggie gravy on their poutine! I so wish this chain was international.
