Following an article about Chipotle Mexican Grill adding a vegetarian option to its menu in California, Yumi Media releases a statement.

On April 17, Yumi Media, a food website devoted to delivering the latest and greatest in food news, recipes, and products to incorporate into your own healthy lifestyle, responds to an article published on KCRA.com regarding the news of Chipotle Mexican Grill expanding their vegetarian option to all northern California restaurants.

According to the KCRA.com article, Chipotle was test running a vegetarian option, and has now decided to expand the run to all of its northern California restaurants. The initial test began with sofritas, which were tested in seven San Francisco Bay Area Chipotle restaurants.

Chipotle founder Steve Ellis was quoted in the article as saying, “we are maintaining our commitment to fresh, fast, and healthy food with the addition of sofritas. We are so excited to be able to offer something new to accommodate our vegetarian and vegan clientele – and we believe that once other customers taste it, it’s deliciousness will speak for itself.”

The article states that the vegetarian menu item is made up of shredded tofu braised with chipotle chiles, roasted poblanos, and spices. The sofritas option is available in burritos, tacos, burrito bowls and salads.

Yumi Media representative Justin Maas released a statement following Chipotles expansion of their vegetarian menu. “It’s great to see another restaurant start to expand the option for a vegetarian meal. More companies are starting to realize that people want a healthier choice when dining out. While vegetarians often use Quorn for their meals at home, choices can often be limited when they are looking to dine out.” Maas went on to praise Chipotle saying “Hopefully more places will do what Chipotle is doing once they see the success the restaurant has from offering a vegetarian dish.”
