What Are Plant-Based Chefs Cooking Up in Palm Beach?

June 3, 2024

Palm Beach is known for its sunny weather, luxurious lifestyle, and of course, delicious food. But these days, delicious doesn't have to mean meat-based! Plant-based cuisine is taking the culinary world by storm, and Palm Beach is no exception. Here, we'll explore the exciting world of plant-based dishes whipped up by talented chefs and a popular restaurant recommendation for trying these tasty options. We'll introduce you to Gradito, your one-stop shop for a unique and unforgettable plant-based dining experience in Palm Beach.

Top 3 Plant-Based Dishes in Palm Beach

Plant-based chefs are getting creative and using their skills to create mouthwatering dishes that are good for you and bursting with flavor. Here are three popular plant-based dishes you might find on menus in Palm Beach:

1. Cauliflower Steaks

Cauliflower is a versatile vegetable that can be roasted, grilled, or even used as a pizza crust. Plant-based chefs are getting creative with cauliflower by turning it into hearty "steaks." These steaks are marinated and cooked perfectly, offering a satisfying and flavorful alternative to meat-based steaks.

Find it at: The Meat Market, which not only offers what it obviously states but also has one of the best roasted cauliflowers. You may order it as a shared appetizer, but it's so delicious you might find yourself sneaking bites throughout the whole meal!

2. Creamy Plant-Based Pastas

Who says pasta dishes can't be plant-based? Chefs are using a variety of ingredients to create creamy and delicious pasta sauces. Cashew cream is popular, made from soaking and blending cashews with water and spices. Other chefs might use plant-based milk and nutritional yeast to achieve a creamy texture.

Find it at: Planta offers different vegan pasta dishes. If you want some kick, try their Spicy Lumaconi Pasta. Are you craving spaghetti? Spaghettini Carbonara is the answer.

3. Vegan Burgers

Burgers are a classic American food, and plant-based versions are no exception! These burgers are made with plant-based patties, such as lentil or bean burgers or innovative creations using mushrooms or beets. Topped with all your favorite burger fixings, these patties satisfy any craving.

Find it at: At VE, this cheeseburger is something you shouldn’t miss out on. This vegan restaurant won’t get a 4.8-star Google review just for nothing. There are a lot more vegan dishes there you must try, too.

Plant-Based Cooking at Home: Easy & Delicious!

Feeling inspired by the yummy plant-based dishes we talked about? Here's the good news: cooking vegan food at home is often easier than you think!

  • Start Easy: Don't worry about fancy recipes. There are tons of delicious vegan dishes that take barely any time to prep and cook. Check out websites or cookbooks for plant-based food. Many have recipes for familiar dishes with simple changes, like lentil soup instead of beef stew or veggie burgers instead of regular burgers.
  • Use What You Have: You might already have many vegan staples in your kitchen! Beans, lentils, tofu, veggies, and whole grains are the building blocks of many vegan meals. Get creative and try mixing them up in different ways.
  • Spice it Up!: Spices and herbs are your best friends. They make your food taste amazing, even when you use simple ingredients. Try different spice blends or make your special mix.
  • The Internet is Your Friend: There's a lot of information online for new vegan cooks. Websites, blogs, and YouTube channels have recipes, how-to videos, and tips to help you succeed.
  • Have Fun!: Cooking should be fun and creative! Don't get discouraged if something doesn't turn out perfectly right away. Keep trying, and you'll be amazed at the delicious vegan meals you can make!
