MEATLESS ENTRÉES TO GROW IN MENU PLACEMENT

Since 2016 was dubbed “Year of the Pulse” by the United Nations (an all-encompassing term for beans, lentils and peas), it’s no surprise that plant-based protein is trending in 2017. 

 

Along with barley and farrow becoming more widely used, restaurants and food manufacturers are making “barbecue ribs,” “pepperoni,” and “hamburgers” from ingredients like legumes and mushrooms instead of meat. This plant-forward movement is also advocating for a larger share of the plate to be allotted to vegetables, and chefs are obliging. Options like charred salads, flash-fried spinach, zucchini cakes, Brussel sprout crispers and sweet potato mash are becoming more prevalent on mainstream menus.
