West Coast, get excited! Beyond Meat recently debuted a brand new product, an all-vegan sausage, called the Beyond Sausage. The sausage initially debuted in the Boulder Whole Foods and was recently added to the menu of a traditional German sausage restaurant, Schaller’s Stube, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
Now, the sausage that boasts more protein, fewer calories, and less total and saturated fat than a traditional meat sausage is expanding to the Los Angeles market!
Starting TODAY, Los Angelenos will be able to enjoy the sausage at Veggie Grill’s El Segundo and Hollywood locations, as well as meat-heavy sausage restaurant, Wurstküche, at their DTLA and Venice locations. Yes!
Diners at Veggie Grill can enjoy the “Wunderbrat,” an Original Bratwurst Beyond Sausage served on a Pretzilla bun with Sierra Nevada vegan cheese sauce, caramelized onions, mustard, pickled red cabbage, and crispy fries. Um, yum!
Wurstküche will be serving up all three of the Beyond Sausage flavors: Original Bratwurst, Hot Italian, and Sweet Italian. You’ll be able to build your own with toppings such as sauerkraut, caramelized onion, curry ketchup, spicy peppers, and Thai peanut sauce. Don’t mind us while we drool over here!
“In keeping with our Eat What You Love™ brand promise, I am pleased to bring to market our delicious plant-based sausage line, product innovation that provides consumers with that satiating taste and juiciness of animal sausage with the health and environmental upside of plant-based eating,” said Ethan Brown, Founder and CEO of Beyond Meat.
With the plant-based meat substitute market set to hit $6.43 billion by 2023, we imagine this is only the beginning for Beyond Meat! If you don’t live in an area where the Beyond Sausage is currently being sold, the plant-based sausage will continue to pop up around the U.S.
