Tsom Vegetarian Flavors

I’m still learning to eat well at restaurants.  Especially vegetarian and vegan restaurants… it’s not like I’m going to accidentally order a steak, you know?  But fried falafels and the often oil-laden restaurant hummus can be just as unfriendly to the waistline.

My favorite question (suggested by both the healthy vegans and happy herbivore) for restaurant ordering is “Do you have a dish that can be easily prepared without oil?”

So I forgot to ask that one today.  This is the potato and cauliflower bowl with brown rice.  I had steamed veggies in my head, but they were roasted.  It wasn’t drenched in oil or anything, but it was a bit on the heavy side.

Tsom has a great cold buffet that I ate from last time that has a lot of light options, from greens to couscous salads to lentil stews.   I do recommend that!

My brother ordered the Indian curry biryani special and yam chips.   He can get away with this because tomorrow morning he will run 10 miles up some mountain peak… with his shoe laces tied together and blind-folded.  Or something like that!

I’d be willing to bet my brother could eat just one potato chip. 🙂
