Does Chick-Fil-A Actually Serve Any Vegan Options?
By Arianna Endicott
Whether you are vegetarian, vegan, flexitarian, or are just curious to try plant-based foods, finding plant-based items at fast food spots is now easier than ever. However, there are still some places where it's tricky to navigate vegan options, like Chick-Fil-A, which may not seem overtly vegan-friendly.
According to the Chick-Fil-A website, they offer some vegan-friendly snacks, including crispy hash browns, Waffle Potato Fries, fruit cups with sliced apples, oranges, strawberries, and blueberries, and sauces like the Polynesian Sauce, Light Balsamic Vinaigrette, and Light Italian Dressing. You can also modify some items to make a simple vegan version by removing the chicken and cheese from the Market Salad or the Grilled Cool Wrap.
Chick-fil-A also began testing the addition of a plant-based sandwich to its menu, which swaps cauliflower for chicken but has yet to be available nationwide. However, their website notes that the sandwich is "plant-forward" but not vegetarian, as Chick-fil-A doesn't designate vegetarian-only prep spaces in the kitchens — meaning that food may come in contact with meat or dairy.
