6. Get a Taste of Southern Comfort, the Vegan Way
One of the best things about living in the south is the food. There’s an abundance of delicious, comfort-food-style dishes that pack a flavorful punch. But for vegans, finding tasty meals can seem like a bigger challenge. But don’t fret—it is still totally possible to enjoy a vegetarian version of Southern favorites. Here are a few ideas:
- Give Biscuits & Gravy a New Twist – Traditional recipes usually call for sausage and bacon, but vegan ingredients can make just as flavorful a dish. Use vegan butter, vegan sausage, and plant-based milk for your biscuit recipe, and for the gravy consider using a combination of vegan ingredients like mushrooms and smoked paprika to replace the meat.
- Veg Out On Collard Greens – One of the timeless staples of Southern cuisine, collard greens can easily be turned vegan-friendly. All you need to do is swap out pork with a vegan version like seitan, and you can keep the recipe as-is.
- Put Together a Classic Hoppin’ John – Hoppin’ John is the definitive Southern comfort food, but the traditional recipe contains bacon. To make it vegan, look for bacon substitutes like tempeh or seitan, and make sure to leave out the chicken broth. With the right ingredients, you can still enjoy this flavorful classic.
- Create a Delicious Mac & Cheese – No Southern feast would be complete without some mac and cheese. To keep it 100% vegan, you can get creative with ingredients like vegan cheese, cashews, coconut and almond milk, and spices like garlic powder and turmeric.
- Treat Yourself To a Home-Style Dessert – Bake up something sweet like a vegan cobbler, made with vegan butter, a no-dairy topping and fruit of your choice. Coconut Milk ice cream is also a great accompaniment, and it’s a delicious way to turn up the indulgence factor on your vegan dessert.
With these recipes, you can get a taste of the south in an entirely vegan-friendly way. Forget about sacrificing flavor—you can have the best of Southern cuisine and a healthy, plant-based diet. Enjoy!
7. Going Out for Vegetarian Food Just Got Easier
Vegetarian dining options
Gone are the days when it was a task to find somewhere to enjoy vegetarian food when amongst non-vegetarian friends. Today, plenty of restaurants and cafes urge people in a group to come together and enjoy vegetarian options that can satisfy everyone.
In the past few years there has been an increasing trend towards vegetarianism. This has resulted in an impressive array of vegetarian options on the menu. With the likes of lentil burgers, portobello mushrooms, egg-less sweets and many others, you can have the same thrill of eating out with the reassurance of having a delicious vegetarian dish. In the menu, you’ll surely find plenty of healthy and delicious options like:
- Mushroom risotto
- Aubergine parmigiana
- Sweet potato tacos
You can explore the spicy flavors of Indian cuisine which includes Bhindi Masala, Paneer Korma and Tarka Dal. Or enjoy the classic Southern Italian cuisine with dishes like Minestrone alla Milanese, Cavoli alla Fiorentina and Penne sabbiosa. There is certainly something for everyone on the table.
8. Living a Cruelty-Free Lifestyle Has Never Been Tastier
Eating a cruelty-free lifestyle has never been tastier. From succulent seasonal vegetables to out of the ordinary offerings, there are endless possibilities for the aspiring vegan or vegetarian. A wide variety of fresh vegetables can be found at any grocery store. Common favorites include spinach, kale, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, peppers, tomatoes, squash, and green beans. The vegan can also throw in some unique picks like Brussels sprouts, eggplant, artichoke hearts, and asparagus. For even more variety, head to the local farmers’ market and experiment with whatever organic fruits and vegetables are in season.
Creating delicious meals with these cruelty-free ingredients is easy. Start by roasting, sautéing or steaming a few vegetables and pairing them with a grain such as wild rice, quinoa, or couscous. For added protein, try adding some nuts and/or legumes; lentils, black beans, edamame, and garbanzo beans work wonderfully. To top it off, craft a salad with whatever leafy greens are on hand and pour on some light, oil-free dressing. Flavorful and satisfying, living a cruelty-free lifestyle has never been so delicious.
9. Popeyes Shows that Fast Food and Veganism are Not Mutually Exclusive
