The food situation was pretty much exactly the same as in previous years - lots of festival food, meaning lots of burgers and other meat and a plethora of deep-fried choices:
|Burgers, burgers, and more burgers|
|Gator Nuggets anyone?|
|Learn how to garden at Bonnaroo!|
|There are a lot of smelly things at Bonnaroo, but at least compost is for a good cause.|
|Random picture of girls with a gigantic hula hoop in Centeroo. They never did manage to get that thing going.|
|Yes, KFC should stop destroying the forests. Also, chickens.|
|This truck had a vegetarian chickpea gyro, which you would have to order without the tzatziki sauce to keep it vegan.|
|Surprisingly, one of the few vegan options among the food trucks was from a meatball truck of all places. They had an eggplant, lentil, cilantro version that sounded like it might be tasty, if it wasn't a thousand degrees outside.|
|The meatball truck had clever slogans like "Eat my box" and "Balls deep," which I thought was funny because I have the sense of humor of an adolescent boy.|
|Art Institute culinary students prepared this meal.|
|What I ate the rest of the time - salad, some couscous salad & hummus|
|Florence & The Machine. That little spot of orange in the middle is her hair. Sorry for the terrible pic!|
Viva Herbal Pizzeria. I actually crave these slices. They call this the "super antioxidant" pizza, but I just eat it because it's delicious and is topped with green tea herbed miso tofu, green tea basil pesto, shiitake mushrooms, maitake mushrooms, caramelized onions, sundried tomato, and roasted garlic, on a green tea herbed spelt crust.
Pure Food & Wine and we wanted just a small snack. We decided on these Hazelnut Crostini with Crimini Mushrooms garnished with caraway sauerkraut and apple cider reduction. Scrumptious.
mille feuille, with raspberry sorbet. Whatever it was called, it was heavenly.
Angelica Kitchen (new to me, not to their menu). It's the hot open-faced tempeh sandwich that comes with mushroom gravy and ruby sauerkraut on a bed of spinach. You must get it with the scoop of mashed potatoes.
Peacefood Cafe for lunch and shared one of their delicious Caesar (vegan of course) salads.
Whole Earth Bakery in the East Village. I love this slice and I also love that they chop up all those veggies for the pizza, because I would be too lazy to do this at home.
Lula's Sweet Apothecary. I'm using being pregnant as an excuse to make more frequent visits to Lula's, when the truth is that I crave it all the time anyway.
I have some more vegan eats to post about soon so stay tuned!
