If there is ever one place where I throw out all the rules of “oil-free” and “unrefined” and just worry about being vegan… it would be at Cornish Pasty. This place is amazing and always a treat.  And everyday they serve two vegan pasty options (just ask your server). Now I just need them to veganize their mushroom, spinach, and walnut soup.

What is a cornish pasty?  It’s basically just a british version of a hand-pie/calzone/empanada.  And I’ve been informed that the pronunciation is important, it’s like saying the word “past” with an “ee” sound at the end… If you pronounce it like the word “paste” you are talking about something else entirely.

When you order a pasty off the menu it has an egg wash… this vegan pasty is made without that!

This is the vegan vindaloo with potatoes and broccoli. If you love Indian food, you will want to eat this everyday! It’s served with a tahini sauce.

Cornish pasty has two locations, one in Tempe and one in Mesa, and I have found both to be great!

Phoenix has a vegetarian food truck!  I hear about these from LA blogs and get jealous, but now I don’t have to be anymore!

We went to “the uprooted kitchen” the last two Saturdays and have loved everything they’ve served… I just wish I remembered to take more pictures of the food!  Currently they only show up at the Gilbert Farmers’ Market on Saturdays from 7-11 AM, so go out and show your support so they can expand!

Their main breakfasts, all of which are very filling and nutritious, are $8 each.  They also serve baked goods for $3 and cookies for $2… and most, if not all, of the options are vegan.

>In the picture above, my salad is almost gone and my quesadillas are half finished… so you really do get a lot of food for $8.  I ordered this without the cheese, because I don’t like vegan cheese.

Here’s what we ordered:
breakfast cheese crisp (pictured above, half-eaten!) – whole wheat vegan tortilla filled with tempeh, butternut squash, baby kale, corn, and caramelized onions – served with a spring mix, sunflower shoot, and cantaloupe salad

chia summer oats – chilled baked oatmeal filled with dates, apples, and walnuts topped with almond milk and served with fresh organic fruit and a blackberry cashew scone.

My mom’s chilled baked oatmeal was amazing too!  It sort of made me think of muesli with this baked bar of oatmeal made cool and creamy from the almond milk.
