Kentucky has brought us all kinds of good veggie things.
Like Bourbon Barrel Foods‘ veg-friendly, anchovy-free vegetarian worcestershire sauce and soy sauce made from locally grown, non GMO soybeans.
And animal activist Ashley Judd.
During an interview with Las Vegas’ Food and Drink Examiner, Sparks said: “I was just in Kentucky and there’s a restaurant in Lexington called Alfalfa that has a complete vegetarian menu, which in Kentucky was an impossibility just five years ago.”
“So things have shifted a lot, so much so that now when you do come across a place like in South Carolina or Montana and all there is to eat is Ted’s Fried Death Café, you’re kind of shocked. You feel like you’ve fallen through a time portal or something—like you should be drinking meat at a jousting event.”
Alfalfa so prides itself on providing food for everyone, it even states on its home page: Feeding vegetarians and carnivores alike with innovative and eclectic homemade eats for over 35 years!
If you go there for dinner or lunch, there are dozens of vegetarian options to choose from like hummus plates, falafel, tabouleh, Garden Burgers and red beans with rice. Some items, like the Quasadilla, are available normally in the vegetarian form, giving omnivores the option of adding their choices without ruining a good dish by making meat a standard ingredient.
Our vote for the most interesting sounding dish goes to the Indonesian Tofu Pita stuffed with marinated tofu, carrots, spinach, scallions and alfalfa sprouts and topped with peanut sauce.
