So a Vegan Walks Into the Cheesecake Factory…
If you’re new to vegan eating, dining out with friends or in areas without a veg restaurant can sometimes be overwhelming. Luckily, many of your favorite chains offer delicious plant-based options. Here are some of our favorite vegan menu items at The Cheesecake Factory:
• Soy-Glazed Edamame
Tossed in spicy soy-ginger sauce or steamed plain, this appetizer is perfect for sharing!
• Vegan Cobb Salad
Wow! This salad is loaded with roasted beets, avocado, green beans, cucumber, chickpeas, and more!
• Veggie Burger
Made with brown rice, mushrooms, and black beans, this savory veggie patty is sure to satisfy.
*Ask for sourdough or wheat bread and replace cheese and mayo with avocado.
• Kale and Quinoa Salad
Kale, quinoa, red pepper, grapes, and sunflower seeds served with lemon vinaigrette! Be sure to hold the parmesan!
• Evelyn’s Favorite Pasta
This dish tosses rigatoni with roasted eggplant, peppers, broccoli, kalamata olives, garlic, and pine nuts. Yum!
*Hold the parmesan and ask that the pasta be tossed in olive oil instead of butter.
• Falafel Salad
Crispy falafel on a bed of romaine and kale with tomato, cucumber, onion, and pita chips!
*Skip the feta and choose from one of three great animal-free vinaigrettes: lemon-blueberry, pomegranate, or shallot.
Pushing for more animal-friendly menu options is a great way to make vegan eating easier for you and millions of other compassionate consumers. Please take a moment to ask The Cheesecake Factory to add a vegan cheesecake to their menu! You can leave a message on their Facebook page here.
