Plant based protein food is increasing in popularity. As the world becomes more health conscious, restaurant owners are looking meet the demand of their customers who are looking to cut meat out of their diets.

Here is a list of the top ten plant based foods based on customer demand.

1. Tofu
Rich in protein, this soy based food is a great substitute for meat in many dishes. Have you considered its use?

2. Chickpeas

Other foods to consider include Peanuts, Quinoa, Spirulina and Almonds.

Adding these might further increase the number of customers coming to your restaurant as you cater for the more health conscious customer.
