Holy vegan cannoli! This weekend, I had the pleasure of dining at 24 Carrots, Natural Cafe & Juice Bar in Chandler, Arizona. WOW. This place was amazing. A colorful, diverse menu that was totally vegan, and mostly raw! I got a whole feast for lunch (hey, you can splurge a bit when it's all veggies!!) I did end up getting take out, so ignore the to-go containers! =)
I started off with the Raw Marinated Veggie Enchiladas...
So dreamy. Perfect amount of spice and substance. And the spicy cashew cream...delish!
I followed those bad boys up with a Zucchini Noodle Salad...
Layers of fresh veggies, spiraled zucchini noodles, and the freshest tangy raw dressing I could imagine. It had hints of fresh ginger and spices..divine!
The BEST part of the meal however, was the finale. The Raw Fig Pistachio Balsamic Cupcake.
Yes, I nearly died and went to heaven when I had this masterpiece. It was rich but not overwhelming, with a creamy frosting, fresh dried figs, pistachios, and a sweet, thick balsamic reduction glaze. As I said, holy vegan cannoli!! (It is my mission to re-create this treat...stay tuned!!)
Know of any good vegan restaurants?? I'd love to know! Share in the comments below if you feel so inclined! =)
