Shake Shack is making its vegan crispy shallot burger permanent available through all its UK kitchens.
The vegan patty was created in partnership with chef Neil Rankin last year and is made using roasted mushrooms and onion, miso, bulgur wheat and a blend of spices.
The chain said the dish has been so popular with customers that it is now making it a permanent feature of its menu.
Back in August, when the item was created, Mr Rankin said: “With Shake Shack being a big influencer with my own plant-based burger journey it was surreal and an honour to be involved in developing something original for them to use,” said Mr Rankin.
“I’ve always been a believer in umami, smoke and spice is the key to living our best life; and this is the ethos this patty is founded on. I think it is important for a burger to be made of real delicious food not just weird powders and proteins and that’s what you get, smashed on a grill and stuck in a bun with beer marinated crispy shallots, dijonnaise and no compromises made.”
Additionally, Shake Shack said that customers can also now swap out any beef patty on its core menu with the vegan patty.
Since the original Shack opened in 2004 in New York, the company has expanded to more than 300 locations in the US and 100 worldwide.
