I might be needing to make a trip to Finland for these! Check out Taco Bell’s new plant-based taco made from pulled oats, appropriately named the “Oatrageous Taco”.
The idea of plant-based “meats” wasn’t born in 2019, but the often shockingly meat-like meat alternatives — from vegetarian sausage on our Pizza Hut pizzas to vegan KFC fried chicken, among others — certainly took off this year. It only makes sense that Taco Bell is getting in on the meat-less action with the launch of its a vegetarian-friendly taco made with a new oat-based “meat” that tastes like the real thing.
Taco Bell calls it the Oatrageous Taco — get it? The new menu item is composed of a crispy shell, pulled oats (the “meat”) that are seasoned like its regular seasoned beef, cheese, creamy chipotle sauce, and lettuce. This, paired with the fact that Taco Bell has one of the most approachable vegetarian menus in fast food, marks another win for those avoiding meat.
