BURLINGTON, Ont. — IKEA Canada has introduced a more sustainable veggie hot dog at the IKEA Bistro for $0.75.
Developed closely with suppliers, the plant-based veggie hot-dog recipe includes kale, red lentils, carrots, ginger, quinoa, onion, potatoes, various spices and is served with mustard, red cabbage and roasted onion. The result is a delicious veggie hot dog with a carbon footprint approximately seven-times less than the classic hot dog.
“The new veggie hot dog helps us cater to the needs of more of the many people at our Bistro locations — for vegetarians or those looking for a delicious plant-based alternative that’s convenient and truly affordable,” says Brendan Seale, head of Sustainability, IKEA Canada. “Our aim is to provide food options that are healthy, delicious and good for our planet.”
The introduction of the veggie hot dog is the company’s latest step towards including a wider variety of healthier and more sustainable food choices. IKEA Canada has plans to roll out more seasonal plant-based options in the restaurant later this year.
