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.
French Toast with Syrup, Eggs, a Pear, and Cran-Apple Juice
Green Salad with Lots of Veggies
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.
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
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
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.
