How to Eat Vegan at Qdoba

Find plenty of plant-based options to enjoy at Qdoba Mexican Eats.

Whether you’re sneaking away for lunch, enjoying a road trip pit stop, or picking up a quick dinner for your family, Qdoba is always a vegan-friendly choice! Choose from preset signature eats and build-your-own creations as well as limited-time offerings, small bites, and even breakfast options at this fast-casual Mexican eatery. Simplify your next visit and effortlessly eat vegan at Qdoba with these delicious options.

Signature Eats

For a quick, preset signature meal, Qdoba has you covered! Opt for the vegan-as-is Fajita Vegan Bowl, Impossible Fajita Bowl, or Impossible Fajita Burrito for a tasty and filling meal. To order the Impossible Taco Salad, omit the cheese and you’re good to go!

Fajita Vegan Bowl: Who doesn’t love sliced and sautéed fajita veggies and handcrafted guacamole? The Qdoba Fajita Vegan Bowl comes with fajita vegetables and guacamole along with fresh pico, chile corn salsa, salsa verde, black beans, and seasoned brown rice.

Impossible Fajita Bowl: Picture cilantro lime rice and black beans loaded up with Impossible meat and topped with hand-sliced, freshly sautéed red and green bell peppers and onions, chile corn salsa, salsa verde, and a sprinkle of cilantro.

Impossible Fajita Burrito: Craving a loaded vegan burrito? Give this one a go! Packed with Impossible meat, pico de gallo, and your choice of beans and rice, the Impossible Fajita Burrito is a delicious handheld to order.

Impossible Taco Salad: Omit the cheese for a tasty vegan taco salad loaded with Impossible meat, pinto beans, pico de gallo, roasted tomato salsa, and crispy tortilla strips served on fresh romaine lettuce.

Build Your Own

Prefer to build your own vegan Qdoba meal? No problem! Choose between a burrito, bowl, salad, tacos, or cheeseless nacho platter. Vegan-friendly bases include soft whole wheat flour tortillas, soft white corn tortillas, taco salad shells, corn taco shells, flour taco shells, and corn tortilla chips.

Load your creation with Impossible meat, black beans, pinto beans, cilantro lime rice, seasoned brown rice, and fajita vegetables.

Vegan-friendly toppings include cilantro, pickled jalapenos, pickled red onions, shredded lettuce, fiery habanero salsa, salsa verde, salsa roja, chile corn salsa, roasted tomato salsa, pico de gallo, citrus-lime vinaigrette, and of course, handcrafted guacamole.

Breakfast Items

Qdoba breakfast is only available at participating locations, but if it’s happening near you, you’ve gotta give it a try! Although there are no preset vegan breakfast items, you’re only a few customizations away from starting your day with this fast-casual eatery. Please note that brekkie modifications cannot be made online, so order your breakfast in person to keep it vegan at Qdoba. Pair your creations with OJ or coffee for the ultimate meal.

Breakfast Burrito: When ordered without protein, eggs, or queso, this brekkie handheld is totally vegan. Peep potatoes, veggies, handcrafted guacamole, and fresh salsas wrapped in a plant-based tortilla.

Breakfast Bowl: Similar to the breakfast burrito, order your bowl without protein, eggs, or queso for a meal loaded with potatoes, veggies, guacamole, and salsa.

Small Bites

Have a small vegan Qdoba craving, but don’t want to ruin your dinner plans? Squeeze in a Mini Bowl or Create-Your-Own-Taco for a perfect midday snack.

Mini Bowl: It’s everything you love about the create-your-own burrito bowl, but mini! Pair your plant-based protein selection with rice, beans, and flavorful toppings like guacamole.

Create-Your-Own Taco: Choose from Impossible meat or fajita vegetables, pick a crispy or soft tortilla, and load up on salsa toppings for a quick vegan-friendly snack.


Adding a little something extra to your plant-based burrito bowl or taco salad? Don’t skimp on these vegan Qdoba sides! You can also find extra sides of beans, rice, and flavorful dips in this menu section.

Chips and Salsa: This snacky classic is a great side for any vegan meal.

Chips and Handcrafted Guacamole: Qdoba guacamole has us seriously obsessed!

Tortilla Soup: Yup, this limited-time offering is totally vegan-friendly! Enjoy it as a side dish or a loaded entree piled high with Impossible meat, beans, seasoned rice, fajita veggies, and crispy chips.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
