Salt Lake City — Americans who choose to stick to healthy
and humane vegan meals love comfort food as much as anyone else—and in honor of
National Macaroni Day, which falls on July 7, PETA is celebrating the Top
Five Best Vegan Mac-and-Cheese Dishes. Taking the number-two spot on
the list is Salt Lake City's own City Cakes & Café, which nabbed the
distinction thanks to its rich and creamy vegan "cheeze" sauce of
blended cashews and roasted red peppers, which is poured over a pile of wheat
Taking first place is Sublime in Fort Lauderdale,
Fla., whose oven-baked vegan mac and cheese starts with a decadent Dijon
béchamel cheddar base and finishes with a crumbly topping of panko bread
The top five also include Soul Vegetarian in Tallahassee,
Fla., which dishes up mac and cheese as a side dish that rounds out a perfect
plate of steamed collard greens, barbecued tofu, and cornbread, and Belmont Vegetarian Restaurant in
Worcester, Mass., where the mac and cheese is a creamy blend of almond milk, soy
milk, and vegan cheddar cheese, with even more vegan cheddar cheese baked on
top. And even
though it's not in the U.S., PETA's tasters couldn't
resist including Vancouver's Wallflower Modern Diner, where the
flavorful baked mac and cheese—made with soy vegan cheddar—can be bulked up
with sliced veggie hot dogs.
Seattle's Plum Bistro and the Cornbread
Café in Eugene, Ore., both nabbed honorable mentions.
"Nowadays, it's easier than ever to enjoy delicious
comfort food that's both healthy and humane," says PETA Executive Vice
President Tracy Reiman. "PETA applauds City Cakes & Café for
demonstrating how dairy-free mac and cheese nourishes diners' bodies and souls without
clogging their arteries."

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
