Restaurants With Good Vegan Options – Cheesecake Factory

Vegan Options At Cheesecake Factory

You know the drill you and some friends are planning to go out to dinner but everyone leaves it to you to pick because they know you are hard to please. What can you eat? Salad? Veges? Blah blah blah. People think because we are vegans we can only eat at salad bars and obscure little vegan restaurants that are found underground.

Well we all know every restaurant serves vegan friendly options, some more than others. Reality is we can even find something to eat at dreaded McDonalds.

Cheesecake Factory LogoIn this column we will feature one mainstream restaurant that offer more vegan options than just salad and a side of corn. In this article we look at the Cheesecake Factory’s menu.

The Cheesecake Factory has a pretty good selection of  healthy options and and all it takes is a little tweaking to make it ohsoveryvegan selections include a veggie burger made with brown rice, farro, couscous, mushrooms, black beans, and onion and a penne pasta dish tossed with broccoli, oven-dried tomato, roasted eggplant, peppers, artichoke, Kalamata olives, garlic, and pine nuts.

Their Skinnylicous menu is wonderful and has a large selection of healthy options. I never even browse the regular menu anymore. If they could just add vegan options to their cheesecake list I would be in heaven.
