Vegetarian Experiment: Day Two

In Day 2 of my adventure eating vegetarian, I ate all three meals at a cafeteria on MSU’s campus. I had no difficulty finding a variety of vegetarian and vegan options, and the food was really, really good. Not your typical cafeteria fare.

Breakfast

French Toast with Syrup, Eggs, a Pear, and Cran-Apple Juice

Lunch

Green Salad with Lots of Veggies

Salad from Salad Bar


Veggie Enchilada and Asparagus

This dish was delicious! The veggie enchilada was made out of vegetable beef. I’m not sure what that means exactly (do any of my readers know?). It had beef’s texture, but wasn’t near as greasy. I wanted to go back and get seconds (and thirds). I didn’t, but it was THAT good.

Dinner

Tabbouleh, Hummus, and Pita Bread

Tabbouleh, Hummus, and Pita Bread

The tabbouleh was AMAZING, the best I had ever had. If you have never tried tabbouleh, it’s a salad made of bulgur, tomato, parsley, onion, garlic, and lemon. It was delicious, especially with the pita bread.

Vegan Sweet and Sour Chicken with Steamed Broccoli

Sweet and Sour Vegan Chicken

I would give the sweet and sour vegan chicken a 5 out of 10. It was average. I’m still curious what “vegan chicken” is made out of.

And for dessert, Tollhouse Pie

Tollhouse Pie

The pie made me think of Phoebe Buffay and her grandmother’s famous cookie recipe. Here’s to you, Phoebe, and your grandmother’s Nesslay Tollhausen.
