Yard House Adds “The Vegan Burger” to Menu

All-vegan option added amongst Gardein-rich veg-friendly menu.

An all-new plant-based option was added to Yard House menus across the country last week, expanding the restaurant’s already plentiful vegan-friendly menu. The new entrée, aptly named The Vegan Burger, is made from “plant-based Gardein and an umami-flavored veggie patty that our chefs mix with red quinoa, kale, and shiitake mushrooms that have been seasoned with garlic, onions, and miso, topped with dairy-free Daiya mozzarella, avocado, tomato, arugula, and onion on an onion, poppy seed bun.” The Vegan Burger joins Yard House’s extensive vegetarian Gardein menu with vegan and veganizeable options such as BBQ Chicken Salad, Blackened Chicken Torta, and Orange Peel Chicken. “In order to stay relevant menus have to evolve,” chef Carlito Jocson said. “These days offering vegan and vegetarian selections aren’t an option but a necessity as more people reevaluate their diets and intake.” The new plant-based burger will appear on menus at all 65 locations.
