With the season changing soon, so are the menu items at many restaurants. This week, the love child of modern dining and comfort food, Steuben's, has added several items to its always-tasty menu. (Don't worry, the crispy Brussels sprouts aren't going away. Ever.) One noteworthy change to the menu lives in the nightly specials section. Baked ziti is the new Tuesday special and can easily be made vegetarian upon request. Layered with three kinds of cheese, this cozy baked pasta dish is the first nightly special at Steuben's with a vegetarian option, and is the perfect hearty dish to usher in winter.

Biker Jim's Wins Over the Veggie Crowd With Vegan Dogs

While Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs is well known for non-traditional choices of meats that go into its sausages, the menu also has an impressive number of vegetarian and vegan items, and all of the vegan items have a handy little red "v" next to them, making it rather painless for veg heads to find something to eat while pro-meat friends are getting their fix of rattlesnake dogs or reindeer corndogs, the newest treat for carnivores.

Nooch Vegan Market.
Chances are you know a vegetarian/vegan or two and they just might be coming over for Thanksgiving dinner.

Vegan dishes available at Nooch from the Watercourse kitchen include a full or half holiday roast, apple sage stuffing, and "bacon" Brussels sprouts -- all setting you back $6 for 6-ounce sides, $8 for 8-ounce sides, $25 for a full roast, or $15 for a half roast.

When Govinda's Garden, the weekend-only vegetarian/vegan dinner buffet, re-opened last October, it quickly became insanely popular; within a half-hour of the restaurant openings its doors, the dining room was usually full. And now we're going to get even more of a good thing: another dinner and three lunch shifts have been added to the Govinda's hours of operation.

Cook Street's Eat Your Veggies class will inspire you to do just that

cookstreet-veggies.JPG
As someone who doesn't eat any meat, I should know more than I do about cooking vegetables. I can make a salad, and I know how to saute, but I've never done much with grilling or roasting -- and while I'd heard the term "blanch," I wasn't entirely sure how one goes about blanching vegetables.

Cook Street School of Fine Cooking designed the Eat Your Veggies class for people like me: People who want to eat more plant-based foods but who aren't quite sure where (or how) to start.

Park Burger's veggie burger remains a top choice

Categories: Veggie Girl

If you've had a burger at Park Burger -- whether the spot in Highland or in Uptown or the original restaurant on South Pearl Street, then you know this an unpretentious eatery does burgers right. The menu isn't vast -- shakes, alcoholic beverages, burgers and fries, and that's about it -- but when a burger is this good, you don't need much else. The veggie burger at Park Burger has won awards from Westword in the past; it's a ridiculously delicious housemade patty, and if you skip the egg, it's totally vegan, too.

Wildflower Cafe's veggie breakfast is a garden of eatin'

Categories: Veggie Girl

The Wildflower Cafe can easily be described as "intimate" -- the tiny dining room holds just a half-dozen tables; there's also a minuscule bar area and a couple of tables outside for those willing to brave the elements this time of year. So even if you show up early for weekend brunch, you'll probably find the place full of families and groups of friends stopping off for breakfast on their way to a day on the slopes, if the snow pants and goggles adorning the diners are any indication.

At Nectar House, raw and vegan are opportunities, not limitations

Categories: Veggie Girl

The long-anticipated Nectar House Cafe and Elixir Bar is finally open on South Broadway. The eatery took over the lobby space at Kindness Yoga, and yogis and yoginis leaving class can even get discounts on their sustenance! As the city's first true purveyor of raw vegan food, Nectar House is showcasing exactly what can be done with raw, plant-based ingredients -- and if you sit down for a meal, you'll quickly see that those guidelines aren't the least bit limiting.

Mustard's Last Stand has veggie items worth relishing

A hot-dog stand might not be the first place you'd think of when looking for vegetarian and vegan fare, but Mustard's Last Stand has learned a lot of new tricks over its forty years. We recently visited the location near the University of Denver and found plenty to relish on the menu, including dogs, burgers and chili fries.

Pho 007 sneaks on to the Littleton dining (and vegetarian) scene

Categories: Veggie Girl

pho007veggiepho.jpg

The stretch of Littleton Boulevard where Pho 007 opened last year -- just east of downtown Littleton -- boasts a handful of restaurants that all attract a decent amount of business. That isn't surprising, given the lack of dining options to draw in passersby. But what is surprising is the quality you'll find at Pho 007, which has been making a name for itself not just as one of the few pho joints in the southwest 'burbs, but as one of the better places in the entire metro area to grab a hot, steaming bowl of rice-noodle soup. Best of all? It serves up a fabulous vegetarian-broth pho that's worth a trip to investigate even if you don't live nearby (and definitely worth regular stops if you do, especially at this time of year).
