Plant-based diets are having a REAL moment right now–and with more veg-based menu items popping up all over, it’s easier than ever to test the waters.
Burger King has long been ahead of the curve in making fast-food more vegan-friendly. In 2019, the chain made headlines when they announced their newest menu item: the Impossible Whopper, made from vegan Impossible Meat.
Meat-eaters and vegans alike consistently give BK’s plant-based burger rave reviews–and it’s even played a starring role in Burger King’s TV advertisements.
“We’ve heard great feedback and know the Impossible Whopper appeals to both current guests who are already big fans of the Whopper sandwich, as well as new guests who are excited about this new option,” Chris Finazzo, president of North America for Burger King, shared in a statement.

In fact, Burger King has a surprising number of vegan-friendly eats to pick from, so you can chow down on everything from apple pie to French fries, and more.
Whether you find yourself at the drive-thru for breakfast or an on-the-run dinner, pick from these 10 vegan Burger King menu options to eat your plant-fueled heart out.
