A juice bar with a conscious? Yes, please. Juice Box LV, located in the southwest, is our eco-friendly (and delicious) answer for healthy — and juicy —  light dining. With a little musical twist (check their menu to see what we’re referring to).

Drink up and try our favorite raw, cold-pressed juice, the Hot Stuff Baby made with lime, alkaline water, mango, habanero pepper and raw sugar. Or, try the Stayin’ Alive made with pear, lemon, daikon and cucumber. With 10 raw, cold-pressed juices to choose from, there’s something for everyone. And, if we’re wrong, don’t despair — you can create your own magical blend of juices.

Juice Box LV also features a large selection smoothies to enjoy. Start with your pick of one of nine smoothies (some of honey, so hold it) and then choose your base — almond, cashew, coconut, hazelnut, hemp or soy milk, or get adventurous and mix in apple cider, orange juice, lemonade, limeade, black or green iced tea, cold brew or alkaline coffee. We dig the Landslide made with banana, vegan cocoa powder and dates.

For beverages, Juice Box LV also offers teas, coffees and even frozen hot chocolate.

The Las Vegas raw juice company doesn’t just offer nutritious and flavor-filled juices, including cleanses, but also a menu of food packed with vegan options. For breakfast, grab an acai bowl that comes topped with fruit, vegan granola, seeds and more, and then add in some vegan protein if that’s your jam (hemp, pea or soy) or some vegan chocolate chips.

Juice Box also has vegan parfaits and vegan muffins, as well as a build-your-own salad option. Our go-to on the menu is the Lemon Quinoa Chickpea salad with greens.

But, it isn’t only the drinks and food we dig here. Juice Box LV is really environmentally friendly and uses compostable PLA “plastic” for their cups, lids, gloves and trash bag. The drink containers are even biodegradable so you can eat here and feel great with what you’re putting into your body … and what you’re throwing away.

Chiang Mai is a mecca for vegan food in Thailand. The country’s Rose of the North — and the second largest city behind Bangkok — has no shortage of vegan options and eating gin jai. Sure, you can eat fish-sauce-free curry and stir-fried veggies all day. But, what about other options? We’re so glad you asked.

As we prepare to launch a vegan tour of the country, we’ve been spending more time devouring all the food Chiang Mai has to offer. Where to get the best vegan food in Chiang Mai? Check out this round-up of some of our top  vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants in Chiang Mai (please note, prices are not street food prices unless noted, they are between $5 – $10 for most dishes).

PS — before you head to Thailand, take a minute to learn about how the elephants are treated. We spent years working with Save Elephant Foundation learning about the realities of elephants used for tourism.

TL;DR: here’s a map with our favorite vegan food in Chiang Mai.

Pure Vegan Heaven

This open-air restaurant features a full vegan menu packed with options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Chow down at Pure Vegan Heaven on western eats like sweet potato pancakes or a heaping falafel pita or order up one of their fresh fruit juices (we dig the turmeric ginger lemonade). Don’t forget to save room for dessert — their chocolate pudding is divine.

Pure Vegan Heaven also has Thai food, as well as raw eats. We ate here a lot. And could have eaten here every day if it wasn’t for the fact that there were so many other places to discover. This spot is a gem and features one of the most creative and flavorful whole plant food menus in the city. Opened in December 2017, make sure to swing by here at least once. If not a million times. Nimmana Haeminda Rd Lane 11

By Hand Pizza Cafe

Need a break from Thai food? By Hand Pizza, located down a tiny soi in the Old City is your answer. Arrive early — although it’s got quite a few seats, By Hand Pizza is a popular spot. The artisan pizza restaurant taps into a wood-burning over to churn out these delicacies, including four vegan pies. Choose from the Vegan Veggie pizza with tomato sauce, artichokes, onions, eggplant, mushrooms and a crust sprinkled with pink Himalayan salt, the Red Alert with tomato sauce, sun-dried tomatoes and cherry tomatoes, grated garlic, crushed red pepper and crushed cashews, the Green Vegan with pesto, eggplant, ‘shrooms, capers and salt on the crust or the Umami Vegan Dream covered with mushrooms, eggplant, tomatoes, pesto and tomato sauce, plus truffle oil. They don’t offer non-dairy cheese, but the flavors are pretty decent, so there’s no need. Plus, they have spicy 0live oil, which gives it a gorgeous little kick. 25 Moon Muang Rd Lane 7

Reform Kafe

Reform Kafe, a part of the vegetarian Green Tiger Guest House, is an entirely vegan restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. They’ve got western food like bruschetta, creamy fettucine, amazing fries, burgers and more, but what steals the show is their vegan take on the Northern Thai soup, Khao Soi. Nearly impossible to find vegan, this spicy coconut milk soup is a must-try. We also dig that their eats are largely organic and don’t have MSG (which is a thing in Thailand). 1/4 Sripoom Rd. Soi 7

Cat House

While you can swing over to Cat House for breakfast (they’ve got oatmeal and homemade bread), what you really need to try at this cafe is the lentil burrito available for lunch or dinner. Filled with black rice and salsa (tell them you’re vegan so they hold the cheese) and covered in a lentil curry, this is one of the more unique vegan dishes you’ll discover in Chiang Mai. Other vegan options here include hummus and falafel (there are better spots in town to get this, though, like the Falafelist), spaghetti and Tea Leaf Salad (we’ve got a different spot for this though that is around $1 to enjoy), as well as curries. 8/5 Chaiyapoom Soi 1

Good Souls Kitchen

Owned by the same folks at Reform Kafe, Good Souls Kitchen serves basically the same menu. But, offers something many restaurants in Chiang Mai don’t: walls and air-conditioning. Swing over for breakfast and grab a traditional Thai soup (love!) or tofu scramble, or chow down for lunch or dinner and enjoy their extensive offerings from soups, salads, curries and more to Western favorites like burgers and fries. Side note: their fries are amazing. Eat them. 8/5 Chaiyapoom Soi 1

Blue Diamond Breakfast Club

Blue Diamond Breakfast Club isn’t a vegan restaurant, but it’s ridiculously vegan friendly with heaps of veg options. Head here for a mix of Thai and Western vegan food, plus a large selection of vegan homemade breads, pastries, superfoods and other assorted vegan products like soaps and more. Known for its western breakfasts, our pick is the pancakes with cashews and carrots. Followed by a vegan croissant. Or vegan pastry. They’re a rarity in Thailand, so get ’em while you can! 35/1 Moonmuang Rd. Soi 9

Alice’s

It may be on Loi Kroh (infamous for the bar girls and lady boy scene), but Alice’s Organic is a vegan treasure. It’s menu focuses largely on vegan and raw vegan eats including desserts and chocolates. They’ve also got a heavy focus on health foods and super foods and offer kombucha, veggie proteins and more. Order up the raw zucchini spaghetti with walnut sauce or a super food salad. While others have mentioned a less than stellar experience, we never had a problem and loved the raw options.  74/1 Loi Kroh Rd.

Salad Concept

If you’re craving something light and western (they’ve got Thai eats, too, but you’ll pay more Western prices for them), then Salad Concept is the spot. With two locations — Nimman and on the east side of the moat towards the NE corner — Salad Concept offers a lot of vegan options in Chiang Mai. You can create your own salad, order one of the ones they feature on their menu, or try one of their few vegan dishes like the tofu steak with mac and cheese. They also have juices, super food shots and more. 49/9-10 Nimmanhamin Rd. Soi 13, 94 Chai Sri Poom Soi 1

Juicy 4 U

We have a super soft spot for Juicy 4 U since we ate there nearly every single weekday while working for Save Elephant Foundation/Elephant Nature Park with our dear friends Bounding Over Our Steps. The vegetarian/vegan restaurant offers gorgeous build-your-own sandwiches, smoothies, juice shots, desserts and more. And we love them all. They’ve even got a vegan khao soi. Also, check out their wall of juices they offer and the numerous health benefits for each. Ratchamanka 5

Vegan Heaven/Taste From Heaven

Owned by the same company, Vegan Heaven (multiple locations in Chiang Mai) and Taste From Heaven inside the moat offer similar menus that are heavy on the mock meats and veganized versions of non-vegan food. They’ve also got Thai eats, smoothies, teas and more goodness. There’s nothing incredibly special about the food, but if you’re looking for a vegan restaurant in Chiang Mai and some western vegan eats, these fit the bill. Taste From Heaven, 34/1 Ratmakka Rd.

Did you know you can have award winning gluten-free vegan pizza while hanging out on The Strip? You can. And, thankfully, its one of the restaurants with vegan options at the Linq Promenade.

Flour & Barley, a casual Italian eatery located halfway down the Promenade, is known for its brick-oven pizzas and beer list … but vegan friendly? Oh yes. Let’s examine the menu that has a few vegan options …

Start your meal off with the Kale and Arugula Salad sans parmesan cheese (swap it our for some vegan cheese shreds instead). The salad includes roasted tomatoes, artichokes, mushrooms, roasted pine nuts and a sweet balsamic dressing. Even though you will want to finish this salad by yourself, this dish is perfect for two. Let’s be real, we came to stuff our faces with pizza!

What to order for pizza?

We dig the Verdure with Daiya Cheese for the go-to veggie pizza option. This is no boring pizza: zucchini, eggplant, artichokes, mushrooms and spinach come smothered with vegan cheese on a hand-tossed 11-inch crust. The pizza is sliced four ways and is perfect for dining with a friend (or, you know, just you). Not in the sharing mood? A personal study has shown that leftover Vegan Verdue makes a yummy late night snack.

While the Verdure was delicious, what really tempted us was their award-winning gluten-free crust (Yes, award-winning! You can check out the two-foot-tall trophy right behind the host stand). It’s made with Antimo Caputo’s gluten-free flour and Stone Brewing Co.’s gluten-free beer. Executive Chef John Alers perfected the recipe and people noticed! This crust was voted “Best Gluten-Free Pizza” at the USA Caputo Cup in October 2017. The 10-inch square Sicilian crust has a nice crunch and will have you questioning why you haven’t stopped into Flour & Barley before. (Pictured is a custom pizza with vegan cheese, roasted tomatoes, broccolini, and spicy calabrian chili peppers).

Just in case you’ve got a little extra room for some sweet stuff (come on, you know you do), top off your meal with a dairy-free sorbetto. We went for the refreshing peach, one of the seasonal options.

Flour & Barley also has a convenient by-the-slice bar located just out front, but no vegan options yet. Next time you head there, be sure to let them know you’d grab a slice at the to-go section if they had some options.

Looking for more vegan pizza in Las Vegas? Here’s our round-up of the best vegan pizza in Vegas.

Catherine Gill, author of the new cookbook The Dirty Vegan had us at peanut butter. And chocolate. And banana ice cream.

Gill, a blogger, holistic vegan chef specializing in natural and health foods and former owner of Dirty Vegan Foods (a vegan bakery specializing in veganized versions of classic desserts), just dropped this new cookbook that offers up heaps of yummy vegan dishes to prepare, like this vegan recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Pie that serves eight people.

Ingredients

½ cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup maple syrup
1 quart vegan vanilla ice cream, softened
1 prepared graham cracker pie crust, 9 inch size
½ cup and 2 tablespoons peanuts, chopped
1 ripe (but firm) banana, thinly sliced
½ cup vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons vanilla vegan soy milk
1 tablespoon coconut oil

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, cream together peanut butter and maple syrup; combine with ice cream. Spread half of  the ice cream mixture evenly in pie crust. Sprinkle an even layer of ¼ cup of the chopped peanuts on top of ice cream layer and arrange banana slices evenly over top of peanuts.

Place in freezer while you make chocolate ganache.

In a small saucepan on low heat, melt chocolate chips, soy milk and coconut oil together, stirring frequently. When well combined, remove ganache from heat and set aside. Remove pie from freezer and pour on a layer of half of the chocolate ganache; spread remaining ice cream mixture on top of that. Lastly, sprinkle ¼ cup chopped peanuts and the last of the chocolate ganache. Sprinkle with last 2 tablespoons of chopped peanuts, cover with lid (that accompanies prepared pie crust) and freeze overnight or until firm.

We would have never known of this off-the-beaten-path spot if it wasn’t for social media. Fortunately, we do know about it and now it’s time to share this goodness with you. Drive north and straight into North Las Vegas to discover the House of Manchester Primal Brasserie.

Vegan food in North Las Vegas is slim pickin’s, but House of Manchester, a Caribbean/Jamaican restaurant with a heavy focus on healthy cuisine and probiotics, is helping to put this part of Vegas on the vegan map. Literally. Look at our map.

House of Manchester doesn’t just have vegan food, it has gluten-free vegan food. Tucked into a tiny swath of businesses along Losee Rd., this cozy restaurant isn’t what you’d expect from its nondescript outside. With only a few tables, House of Manchester is a delightful surprise.

Obviously, we ordered everything vegan on the menu (ok, slight exaggeration, but still). Start with the Bammy Bam Bam with ackee (don’t know what ackee is, check it out here). With the look of eggs, it’s anything but. With a slight sweet taste (we dropped some grapefruit spicy sauce on it and holy wow, that’s a good combo), it comes on grain-free Cassava NotBread, made of veggies that soak up the flavors of herbs they put in. Also, order up the roasted garlic in curry sauce that comes on the NotBread.

Other appetizer options include a NotBread sampler with organic Italian herb olive oil, organic vegan curry Natto (a Japanese dish) and a pear avocado Cassava pizza — just ask for the vegan option that uses Follow Your Heart cheese.

There are two vegan main courses — an organic veggie Run Down with pumpkin, sweet potato and beans in a coconut cream and the organic tamari fricassee mushroom dish with squash, cauliflower and carrots.

With the entrée comes your choice of salad — a chilled cabbage/carrot and garlic scallion option or organic spring salad, plus your choice of hot plate — fried plantains, organic braised kale or tostones con queso with green plantains and vegan cheese (specify you want it vegan).

For dessert, order up a shake or smoothie or try the warm cinnamon-apple-monk fruit cake with a stevia chocolate sauce.

House of Manchester also features organic teas, coffee, vegan scones and a large list of probiotic beverages.

Only open for a couple of years, previously they had a food truck serving up this goodness — Blue Mahoe’s.

2256 Losee Rd., North Las Vegas, 89030 | 702.900.4466

Open: Sunday – Tuesday, Thursday: 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.; Wednesday: reservation and carry-out only; Friday: 11 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.; Saturday: reservation only

There’s another 24-7 option for vegan dining in Las Vegas with No Regrets Bar jumping in on the Las Vegas vegan dining scene. The bar/restaurant located on W. Sunset is one of only a few restaurants in town offering late night vegan options in Las Vegas.

Spurred on by the growing demand for vegan menus in Las Vegas, and having to frequently make tweaks to their menu to serve vegan dishes, Executive Chef Justin Ralenkotter was inspired to create a full vegan menu. Plus, it helped that his fiancé is vegan.

“I wanted to do something to support her needs and that of what appeared to be a very large group of people,” Ralenkotter explains. “I’m not vegan and I liked the idea of having two menus so that vegans and non-vegans could go somewhere and enjoy a meal together.”

The menu features meats and cheese from No Butcher in dishes like mushroom flatbread, pulled pork and spare rib pitas, chicken tacos, salads and more eats ranging in price from $10 – $17 plus some side dishes starting at $5. They even make the flatbread and pita in-house.

No Regrets Bar takes their vegan menu seriously — they have a separate fryer for the vegan dishes and have created dedicated areas to store and prep the food.
“We hope to be a top choice for vegan diners,” he says of the new vegan menu.

If you’re looking for 24/7 vegan eats, No Regrets Bar’s new vegan menu has arrived. Created by Executive Chef Justin Ralenkotter, No Regrets Bar’s vegan menu features meats and cheese from No Butcher, as well as housemade pita and flatbread.

No Regrets vegan menu is large — and offers a variety of options largely geared to those who love mock meats and cheese. Try one of their pitas stuffed with either pulled pork, spare ribs loaded with coleslaw and BBQ sauce with a nice side of french fries or sweet potato fries, or their chicken pita in mayo with lettuce, tomato and onion (and a side of fries).

Ralenkotter’s menu also offers two taco options (mushrooms or chicken), as well as two flatbreads — mozzarella caprese or our favorite, the mushroom flatbread, topped with six different ‘shrooms and cheese on a bed of pizza sauce.

The restaurant/bar also offers two salads – a gorgeous walnut cranberry salad with feta and a caprese salad.

If you want more meat from No Butcher, most menu items offer vegan chicken or pork as an add-on.

For sides and shares, be sure to order up the brussels sprouts. These crispy sprouts are delicious and cooked in an apple cider glaze. They’ve also got garlic mushrooms, roasted potatoes, spicy potatoes and more veggie side dishes.

Just in case there was any doubt that vegan dining scene in Las Vegas isn’t one of the country’s fastest growing vegan scenes, there’s another restaurant that’s opened in Sin City that’s all vegan — El Cactus Veggie-Vegan

Located in Henderson, an area in Las Vegas that is gaining vegan spots pretty rapidly compared to other parts of the city that are underserved (we’re looking at you, North Las Vegas and the Southwest), El Cactus is the second Mexican vegan joint to spring up this year.

“We love cooking and wanted to share the real flavor of Mexico City and surrounding states with Las Vegas, and eventually the world,” says supervisor Rey Velazquez.

Tomas Portillo, the owner,  has been vegan for more than two years and previously owned a vegetarian taco shop in Mexico for five years. A resident of Las Vegas for the past decade, his original idea was simply to open up a Mexican restaurant but things changed. Instead of simply a Mexican restaurant, he opted for opening a vegan restaurant in Vegas.

The motivation for opening? According to Velazquez, it’s to spread veganism. With a delicious abuelita taste.

The Las Vegas vegan restaurant’s menu includes dishes like the nopal relleno, two seasoned cacti rolled and filled with cheese, ham and bacon and served with refried beans and guac. Another signature dish is the aguacate relleno — think an avocado cut in half and filled with your choice of fillings like nopales, poblano peppers or zucchini, along with rice, refried beans sour cream and pico de gallo. They’ve even got enchiladas poblanas that feature four rolled corn tortillas with filling, topped with mole sauce, cheese, sour cream and sliced onions with refried beans.

The vegan restaurant also serves up items like flautas, slachicas en chipotle (sliced hot dogs in chipotle sauce), chimichangas, loaded hochos (bacon-wrapped hot dogs) and more. Plus, they’ve got daily specials including 99 cent tacos on Taco Tuesday.

A fast casual joint for now, Velazquez says they might make the switch to a full-service restaurant in the future.

We brought you the news in Spring 2018 about Red Rock Resort launching a more extensive vegan dining program at their restaurants. Now, we’re digging in and our first stop is Hearthstone Kitchen Cellar.

Helmed by Executive Chef Brian Massie, Hearthstone Kitchen’s refined rustic food now includes vegan options. So, grab your pup and sit on the patio (make sure to call in advance — it’s at the restaurant’s discretion whether or not you can bring fur babies) or cozy up inside the gorgeous spot for some vegan food in Las Vegas.

The menu offers a total of seven items labeled as vegan from apps to entrees. The roasted jalapeño hummus is the featured vegan appetizer, served with crispy lavash.

If you’re hungry, order up some shared plates like the watermelon salad, the herbs and green salad with crispy sunchokes or crispy brussels sprouts.

Vegan entrees at Heartstone include a zucchini ribbons pesto, the farro risotto with wild mushrooms (think more hearty and rustic than creamy), or the Impossible Burger sliders in lettuce cups.

We dig their $6 Happy Hour menu which comes complete with three vegan options served daily from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. as well as an additional Happy Hour (because we all love being happy) on Saturdays from 9 p.m. – 11 p.m.

As of now, no vegan desserts are listed on the menu but according to Russell Sexton, Hearthstone’s General Manager, a couple new items are in the works in the next month. So, get over there and tell ’em you want some sweets!

Cookbook author (and all around amazing vegan chef and friend) Jackie Sobon’s newest book VEGAN YACK ATTACK ON THE GO! hits the stands July 3. We got a sneak peek of her book as well as a one-on-one cooking demo with her … and we’re sharing it with you.

VEGAN YACK ATTACK ON THE GO! features recipes developed for real life … and for people who aren’t necessarily blessed in the kitchen. These recipes are perfect for people who are vegan (or who just want to prepare good food!) and are frequently on the go. There’s even a section covering recipes that take under 30 minutes to prepare.

Check out the Facebook Live Vegans, Baby’s Diana Edelman did with Jackie and then scroll down to learn how to make this delicious summer stew at your house!

Bonus! Vegans, Baby has a copy of Jackie’s new book to give away. To enter, head over to the video on Facebook and tag yourself or someone else to win! The contest is open to all residing in the US and closes Sunday at 11:59 p.m.,  June 24.

Straight from the pages of VEGAN YACK ATTACK ON THE GO!, here’s how to make  Summer Stew.

SUMMER STEW pg. 98

  • 30 minutes or less  • make ahead • one pan• gluten free  • soy free • nut free • sugar free

Even if you don’t have your own garden, you have probably known someone that was inundated with tomatoes and zucchini once summer came around. This stew uses much of the produce that summer has to offer, such as zucchini, green beans, tomatoes, and corn, and it does so quickly and deliciously! I love serving this with basket of toasted, crusty bread on the table
1 tablespoon (15 ml) sunflower oil

1 cup (140 g) diced onion

2 cups (280 g) chopped zucchini

4 ounces (120 g) green beans

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 cups (500 g) chopped tomatoes

1½ cups (315 g) cooked corn kernels

2 cans (30 ounces, or 850 g) white beans, plus liquid

1 cup (235 ml) low-sodium vegetable broth

1 teaspoon dried basil, or more to taste

½ teaspoon dried parsley, or more to taste

1/8 teaspoon black pepper, or more to taste

Pinch of crushed red pepper (optional)1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Directions

Warm the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions, zucchini, and green beans to the pot, sautéing for 5 minutes or until the onions are mostly translucent. Next, stir the garlic, tomatoes, and corn into the vegetables, sautéing for 3 more minutes.

Add the white beans plus liquid, vegetable broth, basil, parsley, black pepper, and optional red pepper to the pot. Simmer covered over medium-low heat for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste the stew and season with salt, plus more herbs if you prefer. Serve hot.

Yield: 4 servings

Tip: At certain grocery stores you can buy grilled corn in the freezer section. I love thawing this out and using it in recipes like this one to add even more flavor.
