I choose cheddar and pepperjack veggie slices and spread dijon style veganaise inside.I use regular veganaise on the outside of the breadit really cooks up crispy and adds a nice tang to the bread. Add some pure tomato soupa cup of teaand I’m 6 years oldback at Grandma’s again !

  • Mark Snyder says:

    During these icy winter months I’m always jonesing for a new kind of soup and there is a DELICIOUS corn and cream of mushroom soup at Spring Street Natural on the corner of Lafayette here in New York that is just about perfect. It’s hearty vegan and goes great with the tomato bread they serve with it. YUM!

    My taste are a traditional American vegetarian girl taste. My fave vegan lunch is a tastey Boca burger vegan pattie with lettuce tomato pickle on a whole wheat bun a hand made tossed salad lettuce tomato cucumber carrot sundried cranberries with homemade balsamic vinagrette. Nothing fancy but that’s what I love.

  • Amanda Goodwin says:

    My favorite lunch meal has got to be a portobello cheesesteak sandwich. You just take thin slices of mushroom and cook it on a frying pan and add green peppers and onions and melt a slice or two of vegan cheese on top and then put on a piece of bread or a bun or roll. Its sooooooooo GOOD!!!!

  • Hannah Campbell says:

    My favourite vegan lunch has to be something I just made recently.. chickpea curry. I added lots of spices as well as vegetables like tomatoes and onions.. so delicious! Daniela Sea is amazing I had no idea she was vegan! The L Word is an amazing show and I’m really sad it’s coming to it’s last season.

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Thanks Danielanice PSAs. I invent all sorts of weird vegan repasts. Tonight I had whole grain pasta with tomato sauce and chickpeas and then some sprinkled raw green pumpkin seeds pepitas on top. Pumpkin seeds are an especially good source of zinc that men apparently lose a lot of when a certain ahem pleasurable activity takes place.

  • BullyDawg says:

    My favorite lunch is a mixed green salad with dried cranberries sunflower seeds chopped walnuts and mandarin oranges with a raspberry vinagrette. It’s filling but light doesn’t weigh me down and gives me a boost for the rest of the day!

  • Mdivani Monroe says:

    My most recent favorite vegetarian lunch was in Bangkok Thailand. At a FrenchMorrocan restaurant I enjoyed an enormous mixed salad followed up by a main course of a wholegrain crepe stuffed with spinach tomatoes onions and garlic sauteed in olive oil. Simply amazing!!!

  • Sharon Neufeld says:

  • Laura Lewis says:

    My favorite vegan lunch is home made tofu burgers with lots of veggie toppings and vegan mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy. Mmmm it can’t get better than that. I guess I’m just a tofu and potato kind of gal’.

  • randi nichols says:
