Red curry with coconut milk

Why not, right?

"GFV" on the menu = gluten-free and vegan

Swing Thai for curry. How can you ever go wrong with curry? They have 3 locations in Denver. We went to the one at 301 S. Pennsylvania. Friendly staff. Worth a look.


Rhymes with Jai-Ya

Daiya cheddar and mozz

Daiya is here! After months of reading VegNews brag-blogs about how great Daiya cheese is, the notoriously melty vegan cheese is now available on Denver store shelves. I haven’t checked which stores have it, but I can tell you that the Cherry Creek Whole Foods does, and I imagine the other Denver locations probably do too. They had these 8 oz packs priced at $4.69 each.

Even though it was late when I got these puppies home, I had to try a bit, so I threw some cheddar shreds on a bit of leftover steamed broccoli. Tasty results:

Chipotle Garden Blend Burrito

Garden Blend Burrito

Chipotle is toying with a new vegan option. The Garden Blend Burrito has a Gardein-created chickenish faux meat, along with all the Chipotle standbys. It is only available at a few locations nationwide, so I had to check it out. In Denver, you can get it at the Chipotle on Alameda and Logan. Worth a taste.

City O’ City – The Sherman

The Sherman

 Had lunch at City O’ City today and got to try out the revamped sandwich menu. I got The Sherman, a dry-rubbed BBQ tofu sandwich with red cabbage slaw and pickles. Excellent. I don’t know how they get the tofu to that firm texture, but it is awesome. That’s a tasty mediterranean side salad there too. Below, my lunch companion’s Maximus burger (made of quinoa and lentils I think), with tomato coconut curry soup.
