To infinity and Beyond Burger!

If your New Year’s resolution is to wean yourself off the meat but you’re not quite ready to give up fast food (now or ever), there’s a new burger on the block that checks both boxes. Hot off the heels of the Impossible Burger’s debut at White Castle, vegan brand Beyond Meat has teamed up with Carl’s Jr. to create a 100 percent plant-based version of the chain’s Famous Star burger.
The new Beyond Famous Star features a quarter-pound flame-broiled Beyond Burger patty topped with melted American cheese, lettuce, tomato, sliced onion, dill pickles, special sauce and mayonnaise on a seeded bun. The patty itself is non-GMO, doesn’t contain gluten or soy, and has 20 grams of protein, which it gets primarily from peas. It gets its red color from beets.
