Montgomery, Ala. – To celebrate the start of fall, PETA has scoured the country for the best and heartiest vegan chili dishes—and Plant Bae has landed a spot on the list for its Charlie Bae Bowl, heaped with black bean chili, sautéed veggies, vegan ranch dressing, and microgreens over cilantro rice.

“Vegan chili is the ultimate comfort food, and it comes with the comforting thought that no animals were harmed to make it,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA celebrates Plant Bae for helping people tuck into their favorite foods without the cruelty or the cholesterol.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that vegan meat sales increased by 148% in 2020 compared to the year before and that 47% of Americans want to incorporate more vegan foods into their meals in 2021.

Other honorees include Arles & Boggs Vegan Eatery in Wallingford, Connecticut; House of Leaf & Bean in Jacksonville, Florida; The Grit in Athens, Georgia; The Social Vegan in Lexington, Kentucky; and Ben’s Chili Bowl in Washington, D.C. Each eatery will receive a framed certificate from PETA, which offers many vegan chili recipes on its website.

PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

“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
