“Cauliflower is the hero of our new sandwich, and it was inspired by our original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich,” Leslie Neslage, director of menu and packaging at Chick-fil-A, said in the press release.

“Guests told us they wanted to add more vegetables into their diets, and they wanted a plant-forward entrée that tasted uniquely Chick-fil-A,” she added. “Our new sandwich is made with the highest quality ingredients and whole vegetables, and we hope it offers customers another reason to dine at Chick-fil-A.”

The Cauliflower sandwich is not considered vegetarian or vegan because it’s cooked in oil used to fry chicken sandwiches.

“It’s a great option for those looking to bring more vegetables into their diet without sacrificing the Chick-fil-A flavors they know and love,” the company announced.

“’The Cauliflower Sandwich is plant-forward, as it places a tender filet from a whole cauliflower at the centerpiece of the entrée,” the company said.
