McDonald's are trialling vegan McNuggets

McDonald's are currently trialling a meat-free McNugget!

The vegan treats are reportedly made with a mashed potato base, mixed with chickpeas, onions, carrots and corn, before being coated in breadcrumbs and fried.

Unfortunately for us, they're only being trialled in Norway, and a McDonald's New Zealand spokesperson told Newshub "there are no plans at this stage to introduce this item to the menu in New Zealand".

It's not the only vegetarian option for the European country. According to Delish, the McDonald's menu in Norway also includes a 'Vegetarian McFeast', made with a veggie and bean-based patty.

New Zealand actually rank third in the world for numbers of vegans per capita and the popularity of vegan-related searches online last year was 11 percent higher than 2017
