The hardest part of eating vegetarian is explaining to the family that the flamingo tongues at the Saturnalia banquet still count as meat. Today’s Groupon serves up healthy vegan and vegetarian fare for eaters of all persuasions: for $4, you get $8 worth of grilled vegan and vegetarian fare at Off the Griddle, a food cart located on the corner of 50th and Division.
Off the Griddle grills up sizzling veggie-based burgers while conserving Earth-juice with solar-powered cooking machines. Peruse the menu of eats served hot off the grill including the Smokey Bleu burger, a vegan patty topped with homemade blue-cheese sauce and smoked-barbecue tempeh bacon ($8). Eschew animal magnetism altogether with a vegan bacon cheeseburger drenched in vegan mayo ($7.50). The Messy Bessy packs a gooey pile of Tillamook cheddar, an organic cage-free egg, and organic avocado atop a vegetarian patty ($8). Cap off eco-friendly meals with a sweet mouthful of Monkey Wrench Vegan Bakery’s cookies, chock-full of chocolate chips or peanut butter ($2 each).
