Vegetarian & vegan restaurants in Broward and Palm Beach counties

You can find vegetarian options at almost any restaurant now. But how many South Florida restaurants are exclusively vegetarian or vegan?

More than I thought. Restaurants that serve no animal products or use them sparingly are spread throughout Palm Beach and Broward counties now, showing widespread support for evolving eating habits.

Some serve only dishes with raw fruits and vegetables; others offer thickly stacked Impossible or Beyond Burgers designed to resemble Big Macs, with lots of fixings. Several emphasize baked goods, while others are sit-down, gourmet dining rooms showing that healthful food does not mean pick-up-at-the-counter only.

Vegan, vegetarian rolls taking over restaurant menus

At Kiku Sushi & Vegetarian, a hidden gem in Lafayette where the restaurant’s whiteboard showcases fresh, seasonal fish flown in directly from Japan, there is a growing list of plant-based sushi rolls impressing pescatarians, vegans and vegetarians alike.

38 Vegan Thanksgiving Side Dishes for a Plant-Based Feast

Thanksgiving is traditionally all about turkey, but choosing to serve vegan side dishes at your feast makes it easier on guests who have certain dietary restrictions—and these recipes can be just as delicious as the ones you’d typically make.

A true vegan dish includes no animal-derived products including meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, and sometimes honey, depending on the person’s preference. To successfully incorporate vegan recipes into what’s usually a meat-heavy meal, try to plan a menu that still feels classic by pumping up the flavor, says Catherine Perez, M.S., R.D., the vegan dietitian behind the blog Plant Based

Whether you’re committed to an animal-free diet or eat omnivorously, chances are you’ve taken notice that vegetable-forward menus are becoming more mainstream.
