The fast food chain plans to start selling a McVegan burger in hundreds of restaurants across Sweden and Finland starting on December 28.
The sammich, which has already been tested at a handful of McDonald's locations in Finland, consists of a soy patty, bun, tomato, lettuce, pickles, onion, ketchup, mustard, oil and an egg-less sammich sauce.
"Like our other burgers, the McVegan is tasty and has a good texture," said McDonald's (MCD) spokesperson Henrik Nerell.
The meatless burger, which was developed in partnership with a specialty Norwegian food company called Orkla, could help the American chain capitalize on increased demand for vegetarian and vegan foods.
McDonald's said the burger will be on its permanent menu in the two countries, a response to "more and more" people wanting to eat "plant-based food" that is better for the environment.
"As the main ingredient is plant-based, the McVegan is considered to have a smaller climate impact," McDonald's said. Livestock farming is responsible for around 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions, according to the UN.

I have yet to find a veggie burger that is any good, and something tells me this won't be the one.
