  1. Happy New Year, Super Vegans!

    The LA SV HQ packed-up the ol’ Prius and headed north for the holidays. We ate a lot of truly delicious things along the way. Here’s our foodiary:

    First stop was Sunnyvale, CA. We celefeasted at Great Vegi Land, whose owner stayed open late just for us, so we ordered half the menu! This is the kind of vegan restaurant that also abstains from onions and garlic, two of my favorite things:

    great vegi land

    Top row: Hot & Sour Soup, Tofu Clay Pot, Mao Pao Tofu With “Fish”
    Bottom row: Dry Salted String Beans, Veggie Beef With Black Pepper Sauce, Kung Pao Veggie Chicken

    We sandwich’d at Ike’s and then tweeted with the man himself about getting a location for ourselves in LA:


    Vegan Captain Kirk, Vegan Pilgrim, Vegan Chocolate Chili Banana Cookie From Cake Monkey

    We ate until all the food was gone at Merit Vegetarian, my fav:


    Spicy Delight, Mocha Chocolate Cake, Strawberry Cheese Cake, and Vietnamese Crepe

    We left Sunnyvale and continued north to Hiouchi, where the food paled in comparison to the trees. We went on a hike through Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park and found Grove Of The Titans, a secret trove of trees the size of skyscrapers.We actually had a couple other dishes, but they were so good I forgot to photograph them!


    That’s SV mascot Argon, a XL dog.

  2. What Did You Ask Vegan Santa for?

    Filed under: Holidays

    We asked…

    And you answered! (Feel free to share your own Vegan Santa requests either on Twitter or in the comments here!)

  3. Whatever you eat next Thursday, we suggest you Adopt A Turkey, such as the appropriately named Skip, as in Skip The Turkey, pictured here, at Farm Sanctuary!

    I’ve said this before but I’ll write it now: Thanksgiving is the only good holiday for the following, inarguable reasons (please don’t argue):

    1. It is a holiday where the holiday is eating your body weight in delicious foods, resting, and repeating. Then shopping, if you’re crazy.

    1.* There is no obligatory gift-giving.

    1.* There is no God or God-like entity involved.

    1.* It’s not just an excuse for people to act like their worst (drunkest/sluttiest) selves.

    *4-way tie for first place in order of importance.

    But let’s face it, Turkeys like Thanksgiving even less than a single lady likes Valentimes. For years, and including this one, we here at SuperVegan have published a comprehensive list of places for NYers to eat other things, but now it’s LA’s time to shine in gravy. So, without further defrosting, here is a list of places where you can eat-out or order-in in the Greater Los Angeles area. Let us know if you know of anything missing at— we’ll continue to update the post, just as we’ll continue to eat a steady stream of stuffed things on Thursday. Continue Reading…

  4. Whatever you eat next Thursday, we suggest you Adopt a Turkey, such as the lovely Payton pictured here, at Farm Sanctuary! (N.B. Not to be confused with religious sect The Salvation Army's horrid perversion of the concept!)

    It’s that Thanksgiving time of year again, and like we’ve done for the past bunch of years, SuperVegan has compiled a comprehensive guide of where to eat out on Thanksging in New York City. This is everything we could find authorative info on. Surely some restaurants are doing Thanksgiving specials but haven’t promoted well enough for us to find out; leave comment or drop us a line if you know of anything we missed! We’ll update this post as we hear of new worthwhile options.

    We’ve also listed caterers that are doing special Thanksgiving packages.

    And if you’re cooking yourself, be sure to check out our round-up of nine (9!) packaged roastable turkey-substitutes on the market this year.

    (This post was updated on November 16 to add V-Spot, BK Farmyards, and extended Monk’s Meat deadline.)


    Monk’s Meats Thanksgiving Box Special features their Brooklyn-made seitan steaks along with stuffing, cranberry, and gravy. Monk’s will deliver to you anywhere in Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan or the Bronx for a modest fee. You have to order these by midnight tonight (November 15)!

  5. Remember a time before Tofurky? (No, there is no ‘e’ in Tofurky.) Meatless technologies continue to advance, and this year, there are no fewer than nine ten options for your Gobbling Pleasure! If you don’t want to make something from scratch here are your frozen turkey facsimile options:


    “Our feast contains:

    • One Tofurky Roast (made with organic non-genetically engineered soybeans) – now 20% larger
    • Savory Giblet Gravy
    • Wild Rice, Whole Wheat Bread Crumb Stuffing
    • Tofurky Jurky Wishstix
    • New ! Organic Chocolate Cake from Amy’s Kitchen
    • Happy Tofurky Day card & coupons

    Each feast is 100% vegan, cooks in about an hour, serves six and tastes fabulous!”


    “The Tofurky Roast is a pre-cooked vegetarian feast designed to be the delicious centerpiece of your holiday or everyday meal. Made from a revolutionary tofu-wheat protein blend, our famous Tofurky Roast is known for its incredible, turkey-like texture and flavor. Stuffed with wild rice and whole wheat bread crumb stuffing, this roast carves and cuts just like turkey but without the bones.
    Since it was first marketed in 1995, Tofurky Roasts have been America’s original and best selling alternative to turkey.”


    The only trace of Match Meat’s Stuffed Holiday Roast on their website is in the form of a recipe, where, apparently Chicken + Sausage = Turkey. I guess that’s Match Math! If you don’t want to DIY it, it’s available for ready-made-purchase at Vegan Essentials,
    “Enjoy this limited-edition (and difficult to find) roast by Match this holiday season! This tender roast is stuffed with delicious sausage-flavored “meat” and traditional stuffing, making it the perfect main course for the holidays ahead.”
