Looks like even Starbucks now has plant-based lasagna and pastries

  • Starbucks now has lasagna, mochi buns and mince rolls made with plant-based meat and cheese

So when we said plant-based versions of beloved food (fast food, comfort food, anything really) will go big this year, it seems Starbucks took notes. Just this week, the coffee chain giant released three new plant-based items on its menu: lasagna (P195), barbecue mochi bun (P95) and mince roll (P85).

Available for dine-in, takeout, drive-thru and delivery via GrabFood, these limited-edition entrees use plant-based Bolognese and cheese (for the lasagna) and plant-based ground patty (for the mince roll).

According to Starbucks’ website, this the company’s bid to “reimagine their menu to make a positive impact on their customers and the enviroment.”
