Plant-based proteins are appearing on full-service plates. These healthy and sustainable foods are growing in popularity from tremendous customer demand. Many chefs have parted with animal proteins of the past to embrace experimentation in a plant-forward future.

The taste and nutrition company Kerry released a Rethinking Meatless report that estimated plant-based products have experienced an 800% increase in the past four years. Your restaurant can take advantage of this trend and increase sales by adding foods that feature plant-based ingredients. This will attract health-conscious customers that are searching for quality plant-based foods.

Here are four plant-based proteins to use in your menu:

  • Quinoa
  • Impossible Meats
  • Lentils
  • Spirulina

These plant-based ingredients provide a financial opportunity. The food cost for these ingredients are roughly half of traditional meat items. This will help your restaurant raise profit margin.
