Served with Pickled Onions, Guacamole and Vegan Sour Cream, this superfood dish delivers on the full flavour Boojum is famous for. Launching, Tuesday 07 January, customers will be able to enjoy the new dish in their burritos, bowls or tacos in Galway’s Spanish Parade store. While Boojum, due to its fully customisable nature, has catered to vegans since opening in 2007, the leading Irish fast-casual restaurant brand has been getting creative and experimenting with their menu over the last year. So whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian or simply giving Veganuary a go, Boojum’s new Sweet Potato & Lentil dish aims to make it that little bit easier, and a whole lot more interesting.
