Sonoma County, Calif. – The rise of vegan-friendly food trucks is putting humane, healthy, and convenient foods in the hands of ever-more people on-the-go, and with that in mind, PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—is unveiling its Top Five Vegan Food Trucks, naming Sonoma County’s Seed on the Go as one of the outstanding wheeled eateries worth walking up to.
Seed on the Go—given to plant-based chef Jerri Hastey by her daughter, vegan actor Jessica Chastain—dishes up delicious dishes, including the Sloppy Seed, a sweet-and-spicy tomato and tofu sandwich, and the Sea Cake, a tofu and veggie seaweed cake served with lemon-chive aioli. The creamy, layered Chia Tapioca Parfait and the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie, which is rumored to be addictive, allow diners to end their meal on a sweet note.
“Seed on the Go is a dream come true when it comes to providing Sonoma County with creative comfort food that’s as great on the taste buds as it is on the planet, animals, and your arteries,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “The all-vegan food trucks on PETA’s list are helping more people save animals and improve their own health whenever it’s time to pick up a quick bite on the go.”
The other winners include BBQ Revolution, which has won fans in Austin by dishing up authentic Texan BBQ with an all-vegan twist. Also in the count are Detroit’s Shimmy Shack, known for its classic American lentil burger and other family favorites; Louisville’s V-Grits, whose Hot Brown Melt, a vegan version of an iconic local dish, flies off the grill; and Gmonkey Mobile in Connecticut, whose Feisty Monkey Peanut Soba Noodles, served over a bed of greens and topped with cilantro house dressing, are a favorite for locals and visitors alike. Each winner will receive a framed certificate.
