We tried Chick-fil-A's new Cauliflower Sandwich. Here's how it tastes and why it's not 'vegetarian.'

Chick-fil-A's newest sandwich looks just like its original, but it sure doesn't taste like it.

The Atlanta-based restaurant chain is debuting a new Cauliflower Sandwich in three different markets on Monday.

It's the company's first plant-forward entree.

"We are committed to chicken, and chicken is the hero," said Leslie Neslage, director of Menu and Packaging for Chick-fil-A. "But... it was becoming more and more prevalent that customers really want to find ways to increase vegetables in their diet."

Customers can already order salads and other items without chicken, but Chef Stuart Tracy, senior lead culinary developer for Chick-fil-A, told USA TODAY, "We wanted it to be a purpose-built entree that was plant-forward."
