November is World Vegan Month, a perfect opportunity to learn more about the vegan lifestyle and try new foods. According to the Vegan Society, vegans seek “to exclude – as far as is possible and practicable – all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.” For their diets, this means eating plant-based and avoiding all animal food including fish, dairy, eggs and honey. Below, you’ll find a few healthy and delicious vegan meals to try in Addison this month!
El Bandito at Hopdoddy Burger Bar

This delightful “burger” is made with a black bean and corn patty, topped with goat cheese, guacamole, arugula, tomato, onion, chipotle aioli and basil pesto sauces on a house-baked vegan bun is simply delicious. Just be sure to order without the cheese to make it truly vegan friendly.
