A redesigned menu featuring a new vegetarian section is rolling out at all of Taco Bell’s 7,000 U.S. locations.

About 7% of all items ordered at Taco Bell are either vegetarian or made meatless by substitution or removal, the company says.

Taco Bell will mark vegetarian items on the menu with a green emblem showing its American Vegetarian Association certification.

Taco bell officials say their restaurants offer more than a dozen vegetarian dishes.

Customers can also substitute beans for meat in any menu item.
