This past weekend I made it out to The Seed, an event for “vegan exploration,” featuring a myriad of food vendors, live speakers and cooking demos, screenings, animal activist groups, natural living and cruelty-free vendors, and more. It was fantastic to see so many vegans and vegan-curious people gathered in one space, and naturally, there were plenty of delicious bites to be had. I didn’t take photos of all the tables, because that would have been exhausting (plus I was carrying one infant + one large diaper bag), but I did capture my favorite eats of the day. Because we all know I was just there for the food.
The mind-blowingly delicious Beyond Sushi was on site, with both sample bites and full rolls available for purchase. I contemplated returning to their table in multiple disguises so I could just keep getting free samples, but I figured they’d still recognize the baby. Just look at all those rolls on display, that they cruelly tell you not to eat. I could massacre that mountain of sushi, but I’m vegan, and I don’t believe in violence.
|These sushi rolls are works of art. A must-eat when in NYC!|
|These divas know what they are doing.|
And they also had these Lime Basil Truffles, which were so good I had to take a package home. The basil is fairly assertive at first bite, then mellows out and allows the subtle lime tang to come through. I never had this flavor combination in a chocolate before, and I liked it a lot.
|Hell yeah, dawg.|
I got a scoop of their Mint Cookie and a scoop of their Key Lime. The Key Lime is my favorite, I love the contrast of the cool creaminess with the refreshing lime tang, but their Mint Cookie totally rocked my world too. I actually thought I was getting a scoop of mint chip, you know, the regular kind with chocolate chips or flakes in it, but this was SO MUCH better. It’s a very refreshing mint flavor with big hunks of Oreo-type cookies in it. Now they are both my favorite flavors and will have to compete for my affections.
And they are both Dahlia-approved.
