Apparently McDonald’s is looking into more non-meat alternatives with Tofu McNuggets debuting in Japan this week! Not quite lab-grown meat, but a step into the right direction for sure. Sadly they do contain fish though, so not a truly veggie option, alas.
According to Take Part,
Tofu Shinjo Nuggets strongly resemble the bits of breaded chicken the chain is both famous and infamous for—but they’re composed of tofu, onion, carrots, and minced fish. The name “Shinjo” refers to a type of Japanese fried fish cake. The dish contains fewer calories than traditional Chicken McNuggets and is served with a ginger dipping sauce—forget the barbecue or ketchup.
They will enter stores as of this Wednesday.
Huh! Who would’ve thought. Anybody in Japan who will try one for me?
