Book Club Restaurant has cooked up a wholesome and satisfying Summer Vegetable Burrito complete with brown rice, avocado, black bean, sour cream, charred tomato salsa! Yum!

Heather’s in Minneapolis has created a delicious Buddha Bowl filled to the brim with coconut jasmine rice, roasted sweet potatoes, cauliflower, red peppers, pickled red onion, fried curry tofu, and cilantro chutney. They’re also offering a Cauliflower steak with Romesco sauce (roasted red peppers and almond), fried capers, toasted almonds, and arugula.

You can find The Naughty Greek‘s Favalafel Gyro sandwich with Greek side salad featuring vegan feta cheese at both of their St. Paul locations. Did you know they imported their vegan feta from Greece for the challenge?!

Parkway Pizza St. Louis Park, Northeast, and Longfellow are bringing it in with the creamy classics this year—start out your meal with their vegan artichoke tip before biting into their new special Vegan Farmer Pizza, a pie that starts with an oil and garlic base and topped with fresh basil, Follow your Heart vegan cheese, and fresh cherry tomatoes and zucchini from your local farmers market.

Reverie Cafe + Bar is featuring two of their classics! The first is their Rev Burger, which features a housemade Rev patty, rooibos tomato jam, arugula, smoked onions, and kimchi aioli on an hambasha bun, available for lunch and dinner daily. The second is their Market Hash, a dish made with smoked potatoes, housemade sausage, seasonal veggies, creamy chimichurri, and pepitas available for brunch on weekends!
