Popeyes is teaming up with LIVEKINDLY Collective for the launch of the brand’s first-ever plant-based entrée, the new Creole Red Bean Sandwich, in London.
The Creole Red Bean Sandwich comes with a crispy, breaded 100 percent plant-based patty made with Popeyes’ classic red beans and bold Cajun spices with onions, garlic, peppers, then battered and breaded using a vegan version of the chain’s signature buttermilk coating.
More specifically, the plant-based patty, which is certified Halal and registered with the Vegan Society, is baked until hot and crispy and topped with signature Red Creole sauce, sweet pickled red onion, baby gem lettuce and a thick slice of ripe beefsteak tomato before being served fresh on a buttery toasted vegan brioche bun.
Following the launch of the new plant-based sandwich in the UK, Popeyes’ plans to offer the Creole Red Bean Sandwich as the gold standard offering for its franchisees worldwide, with India launching next.
The sandwich was developed in close partnership between LIVEKINDLY Collective’s Innovation Team and Peter Genna, Popeyes Global Culinary Innovation Chef.
The Creole Red Bean Sandwich will be available at Popeyes’ flagship restaurant in London starting on November 20, 2021.
