A New Year’s resolution that we are making is to incorporate more veggies into our diet, but it’s hard not to reach for comfort food when the temperature begins to drop. Our solution? Swap out your comfort food cravings with some vegetarian alternatives. Here’s your guide to some of our favorite vegetarian comfort foods at select Lettuce Entertain You restaurants.
Craving a burger?
Try Stripburger‘s Housemade Veggie Burger which has ruled the vegetarian burger scene in Las Vegas.
Or give Beatrix‘s Mushroom & Quinoa Burger a try. This ancient grain and savory mushroom combination will keep you full until your next meal.
Ann’s Veggie Burger at L. Woods could also be a contender for your favorite vegetarian comfort food.
Hub 51‘s Antiburger with two veggie patties, secret sauce, and Cholula hot sauce will easily make you forget all about red meat.
Craving chicken fried rice?
Try HUB 51‘s Carrot and Pea Fried Rice that is perfect for satisfying that greasy Chinese food craving. And a major bonus, it’s totally vegan!
Craving shrimp and grits?
Try the Cauliflower Grits & Eggs at Beatrix for a take on this southern classic. And you’ll even double up on vegetables with the crispy brussels sprouts on top.
Craving chicken parmesan?
Try the crispy Cauliflower Parmesan at il Porcellino instead.
Craving a steak?
Try Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab‘s Roasted Cauliflower Steak with mint chimichurri and a pink lady apple garnish.
