The results are in and the most ordered food item of 2019 is — cauliflower pizza? According to Grubhub’s inaugural “Year in Food” report, vegetarian and vegan items are more than in, dominating seven of the top 10 spots on the list. Following right behind the healthy pizza option (a 650% increase from 2018) are other vegetable-based choices, including spicy Brussels sprouts and portobello empanadas at number two and three respectively, which were both also more than 600% popular than last year.

Grubhub reportedly analyzed tens of millions of orders that were placed by its customers, spanning more than 21 million restaurants across the country. Alongside the “top-ordered food of the year” category, the company also looked at areas such as “top trends on the rise,” “top desserts,” “top meat-alternatives” and more. The report also breaks down different eating habits by region, awarding locations titles for “night owl” (Washington, D.C.), “health nut” (California), “most energized” (Oregon), and “sweetest state” (Texas).

Considering the onslaught of eateries that are adopting plant-based fare — Burger King is among the latest to join the phenomenon, albeit with growing controversy — it falls in line that the Impossible Burger specifically saw more than a 200% rise in popularity. Meanwhile, other items displaying significant growth rates furthered the health-conscious trend, with celery juice up 302% and oat milk up 28% since last year.

To commemorate the launch of the report, Grubhub is also offering users their own “Taste of 2019” data where they can review personalized stats around their top-ordered food, when they ordered the most and more.
