If cutting back on meat-based meals is on your list of 2021 resolutions, Dunkin' has a new way to help.
The donut, coffee and breakfast chain announced it is adding a new plant-based protein patty to its menu: the Southwest Veggie Power Breakfast Sandwich.
The new item is the second plant-based addition to Dunkin's sandwich menu, following last year's Beyond Sausage Breakfast Sandwich, Dunkin' said. The latest meatless addition is a collaboration with MorningStar Farms.
The Southwest Veggie Power Breakfast Sandwich is "a flavorful, meatless sandwich that doesn’t sacrifice on taste," according to Dunkin'.
It is now available for a limited time at participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide.
The Southwest Veggie Power Breakfast Sandwich features a MorningStar Farms Black Bean Patty packed with southwest flavors, layered with an egg white omelet filled with spinach, bell peppers and onions, topped with aged white cheddar cheese, served on a multigrain thin.
With 410 calories, 26 grams of protein and 23 grams of whole grains, the new sandwich is the perfect on-the-go option for a new year and a new start, Dunkin' said.
"Dunkin' is proud to expand our plant-based offerings with the introduction of the new Southwest Veggie Power Breakfast Sandwich to meet the needs of our guests and provide the flexitarian and vegetarian options they crave to keep running any time of day," said Jill Nelson, Vice President, Marketing & Culinary at Dunkin’.
"This sandwich is really exciting for MorningStar Farms because it delivers a veggie-centric option for Dunkin’ guests, giving them a great plant-based protein patty," said Dara Schuster, Senior Director of Marketing, Plant Based Protein at Kellogg Company. "The sandwich has a kick of heat from the Morningstar Farms Black Bean Patty, offering a flavorful breakfast sandwich that packs 26 grams of protein and celebrates real recognizable ingredients. Flexitarian eating is on the rise and we're thrilled to deliver new menu items that can satisfy everyone."
