If you are ever in Chicago, go to this place!
3411 N. Halsted
Chicago, IL 60657
It is very close to Wrigley Field in a great neighborhood. The decor and seating is a bit nicer than a normal diner and they have incredible vegan and vegetarian food. They do serve eggs and real cheese, but the menu is very well marked and if you tell them straight up you are vegan, they take good care of you.
If for nothing else, go for their deserts. Huge cakes, cheese cakes and “milk shakes”. The place is very Chicago, which is the best part. (I am originally from the Chicago area)
Here’s an E-Z Artichoke Dip I got from their email newsletter. I’m still looking for the best vegan mayonnaise, suggestions?
E-Z Artichoke Dip
1- 15oz. can of artichokes in water, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
1 tablespoon chopped, fresh dill
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 pound spinach, cooked and chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Place the artichokes in a food processor, and blend until semi-smooth.
Transfer to a bowl, and fold in the mayonnaise, chopped fresh dill, garlic, spinach, and salt and pepper to taste.
