What's next on the horizon for delicious plant-based food? 2019 saw a rise in vegan menu items in major restaurants like Burger King and KFC. Here's what LiveKindly predicts to be the top 10 trends of 2020.
#1 Vegan chicken
Following the wave of the vegan burger, restaurant chains are jumping on the vegan chicken bandwagon.
#2 Oat-based meat
Oats aren't just for milk anymore. Companies like Taco Bell are beginning to serve meat made from oats.
#3 Fully vegan fast food
More vegan burgers are coming, but not only that -- vegan sausages, chicken, and cheese are being added to menus based on consumer demand for fully plant-based pizza, cheeseburgers, and breakfast sandwiches.
#4 Vegan eggs
Dunkin's vegan breakfast sausage would taste great with a JUST egg. With new plant-based egg products looking and tasting just like eggs, they're predicted to be a major player in 2020.
#5 New cheese varieties
Small-batch producers are stepping up to the plate with new varieties like brie, gouda, and ricotta.
#6 Dairy-free chocolate
While 2019 was the year of vegan ice cream, 2020 is predicted to bring innovative new chocolate products.
#7 Vegan baked goods
Bring on the vegan pastries! Croissants, brioche, macaroons, and more are predicted to be everywhere next year.
#8 Vegan French food
Did you know that some restaurants are serving vegan foie gras? Keep an eye on vegan French restaurants and chefs, who are serving up inventive new vegan options.
#9 Bean-based products
Beans are both versatile and nutritionally dense, making them a great base for vegan yogurt, eggs, cheese puffs, and more.
#10 Greens, greens, and more greens
Green veggies will be all the rage again. Get ready for superfoods like kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and arugula to make a comeback.
