In 2015, according to the Vegetarian Resource Group Blog, Mellow Mushroom released their “Vegan Favorites” menu, featuring a variety of appetizers, salads, and entrees made without animal products. While some of these dishes are on the main menu and require you to request the dish without cheese, Mellow Mushroom created some original recipes crafted specifically for a vegan diet. Though the menu has changed since its debut, the classics remain in all their cruelty-free glory.
The Vegan Tempeh Hoagie is a meatless, cheese-less spin on the original. But with tempeh and Follow Your Heart vegan cheese, you don’t have to sacrifice flavor (or protein!) to get a sandwich without animal products.
But, if you, like many of us, go to Mellow Mushroom for pizza, do not fret! The vegan pizza option consists of Mellow’s classic crust (sans parmesan and butter, of course) and tomato sauce, topped with vegan cheese and fresh vegetables. Mushrooms and olives give this pie plenty of flavor, and vegan cheese makes up for the absence of the gooier, cow-based version.
