How to Eat Vegan At Chipotle | Vegan While Out

Being a vegan will definitely sharpen your culinary chops, but if you're like me, eating out is just as fun.

It's nice when my food options aren't limited to just french fries and salad (sometimes this happens lol), so I appreciate when companies make an effort to put vegan friendly options on the menu.

I came across this chart on Facebook that does a quick breakdown on how to eat vegan at Chipotle.

I usually order rice, black beans, fajita vegetables, guacamole and lettuce in my bowl or burrito.

Have you tried the sofritas yet? I wrote about my experience with it here.

I also put together a video with 7 tips on how to enjoy eating out as a vegan....

Happy dining out!

Vegan While Out: Chipotle Got Dat Tofu, Yo!

"Vegans & carnivores unite!" is the slogan Chipotle is using to promote their tofu sofritas.

I finally tried the sofritas bowl yesterday! I haven't been to Chipotle in months, so I didn't realize they started offering it outside of Cali (I remember when they were testing it out there several months ago).

I actually found out about it because my cousin in-law (who isn't a vegan) mentioned he lost weight on the what he calls the "sofritas & Subway diet." lol

Chipotle is using shredded organic tofu, then braising it with chipotle chilis, roasted poblanos and a blend of spices. This is an amazing meat substitute for families dabbling into meat-less life.

The texture is perfect! It's firm and has a serious bite like chicken. In fact, my boys said it reminded them of chicken. It's spicy and delicious!

Before sofritas, Chipotle was already very veg-friendly. My usual order is a bowl with black beans, fajitas, crack rice (you know that rice is crack! lol), guac, mild salsa and lettuce - so ordering sofritas was a nice change from that.

Will I order it again? Probably not. I loved the flavor and I'm sooo glad it's on the menu, but I don't like that Chipotle charges $2 for guac when you order sofritas. I'm used to guac being standard in my veggie bowl, so I refuse to pay extra for it. *Ye Shrug*

Anywho, I LOVE that tofu and vegan options as a whole are becoming more and more mainstream. :-)

See if sofritas are available in your area!

Have you had a chance to try it yet?
