Veganism has risen in popularity massively of late, and there’s loads of choice for plant-based diners in Dubai.

But now flexitarian, which, as it sounds is a little more flexible, is becoming more common.

The trend, which has been around for several years, is a primarily plant-based diet but with the occasional meat product.

Whether you’re trying to cut down on meat, or if you prefer a plant-based lifestyle, then there’s a new delivery option for you. Flexi Kitchen, a new delivery-only restaurant catering to “flexitarians” has launched in Dubai.

The menu includes breakfast, salads and mains, including the much-talked about plant-based Beyond Burger (it’s made from pea protein and potato starch) that’s served with avocado, baby spinach, caramelised onions, tomato, basil pesto and served on a multigrain bun with a side salad for Dhs45.

Other plant-based highlights include avocado toast with hummus, tomatoes, pomegranate seeds and wild rocket (Dhs30) and a salad that comes with mixed quinoa, kale, baby spinach, figs, beetroot, edamame, strawberries, pomegranate, a mix of dried nuts and fruit and a basil pesto dressing (Dhs45).

Vegetarian options include overnight oats with chia seeds, Greek yoghurt, almond milk, honey, mashed strawberries, fresh raspberries and kiwi (Dhs28) and grilled halloumi served with green lentils, grilled courgette, red onions, yellow and red cherry tomatoes and fresh mint (Dhs42).

And finally, healthy-sounding meaty dishes range from courgetti – an alternative to pasta made using courgette – with baby spinach, king prawns, garlic and lemon (Dhs52) and a sous-vide grilled chicken seasoned with rosemary and garlic and served with steamed vegetables (Dhs45).
