Luckily Santa Monica is veggie friendly and has several amazing vegetarian/vegan restaurants to choose from. Today we stopped by Veggie Grill on 20th/Wilshire for some vegan delights. Back when I was a carnivore I still loved coming here for a fresh, healthy, and filling meal. Everything I've tried on their menu is amazing and 100% vegan. Today I ordered the Baja Fiesta Salad and added blackened tempeh. The salad comes with chopped romaine, quinoa, papaya, avocado, roasted corn salsa, cucumber, cilantro, tortilla strips, and ginger-papaya vinaigrette. I'm not sure if this salad would be filling enough alone, but adding the blackened tempeh makes it a full meal to me. The salad is light and fresh and the blackened tempeh is just.. just try it.
