The challenge was on!
It’s that time of year (still on my birthday week for the record!) San Gennaro is one of those things that you really aren’t sure why you go but you go anyway! It’s the Italian feast in Little Italy, NYC.
I asked on Facebook if anyone thought I would find anything vegan and the answer was an overwhelming NO! Now who is being negative– I set out to find some vegan food! I knew I would, but honestly, it wasn’t that easy!
Here is what I came up with: (please keep in mind that pasta isn’t part of my diet nor do I even know if it’s vegan; I’m guessing it is if there are no eggs included.) I wasn’t in the mood for the mangos or sorbet but I had the broccoli rabe which for the record was the ONLY VEGETABLE available at the whole feast. I shouldn’t say that. There was also onions and peppers and GMO corn!
- Fresh cut mangos
- Broccoli rabe with garlic
- Flava beans
- Carrot, spinach, apple juice
Luckily, I found the fresh vegetable juice on the way out!
