Hold the meat! Taco Bell isn't jumping on the plant-based meat bandwagon yet, but it's still promoting vegetarian options.

The restaurant is rolling out a new vegetarian section on its redesigned menu at all of its 7,000 locations in the U.S.

The company said it will highlight two new meatless items as well as existing options.

The chain will also mark vegetarian items placed elsewhere on the menu with a green emblem showing its American Vegetarian Association certification.

Taco Bell said they will have more than a dozen vegetarian dishes.

Customers will also be able to substitute beans for meat on any menu item.
