ATLANTA — Chick-fil-A is testing its first ever plant-based alternative with a new cauliflower sandwich.

Made with a tender filet cut from cauliflower, two dill pickle chips and a toasted bun, the sandwich is aimed at consumers seeking an extra helping of vegetables with their Chick-fil-A order.

“Guests told us they wanted to add more vegetables into their diets, and they wanted a plant-forward entree that tasted uniquely Chick-fil-A,” said Leslie Neslage, director of menu and packaging at Chick-fil-A. “Our new sandwich is made with the highest quality ingredients and whole vegetables, and we hope it offers customers another reason to dine at Chick-fil-A.”

The plant-based sandwich is the result of a nearly four-year development and testing process by the company’s in-house chefs.

“We explored every corner of the plant-based space in search of the perfect centerpiece for our plant-forward entree,” said Stuart Tracy, culinary developer at Chick-fil-A. “Time and time again, we kept returning to cauliflower as the base of our sandwich.”

Testing for the product is now underway at select locations in Denver, Charleston, SC, and North Carolina’s Greensboro-Triad region.
