Meatless Monday: More fast-food companies are considering vegetarian menu items

Though there are no formal plans at the moment, Burger King’s menu could get a makeover in the future. 

As it stands, the fast-food chain touts one vegetarian-friendly item, the MorningStar Veggie Burger, but the options could expand if the company launches the menu from its Indian stores worldwide. 

There were rumblings at the end of June that the company would expand the India menu in the United States, but confirmed with Quartz that, though there are no formal plans to do so right now, it could consider expansion in the future. 

Burger King stores in India have special options to accommodate the largely vegetarian population, like the Paneer King Melt burger and the Spicy Bean Royale sandwich, Quartz reports.

Burger King isn’t the only fast-food chain to consider or test vegetarian options. McDonald’s tested a vegetarian-friendly burger in 2001 in the United States, though it had meager reception, according to Business Insider.

At the beginning of the year, White Castle also started selling a veggie slider, Fox News reports
