Best Vegan New Orleans

Best vegan restaurants in New Orleans

Brittany McCallum

Although "The Big Easy" is known for incredible food, ordering from a traditional Cajun menu can be difficult for vegans. I thought I would struggle finding food to eat during my trip to Nola, but I was pleasantly surprised to find two great restaurants during my short stay. There is always a salad option for those on a plant based diet, so it was a treat to discover filling, Creole inspired vegan meals. 

SEED

Seed combines the best of both worlds. This sustainable restaurant, located minutes from the heart of downtown has a delicious menu full of New Orleans style dishes. I really enjoyed their southern fried poboy! The chickpea flour breading, combined with various cajun seasonings, gave the fried tofu a nice flavor. The gumbo was great too. For those worried about missing out on the famous beignets from Café Du Monde, Seed offers an outstanding dairy-free alternative to the classic powdered sugar topped pastry. Their fresh beignets are served warm and I highly recommend you order them!

GREEN GODDESS

The food in this tiny space has gigantic taste! I found this gem nestled in a quiet alley one block from Bourbon Street. There's hardly any indoor seating, and the wait can get pretty long for one of the few tables outside the kitchen, but it's totally worth it! Green Goddess serves meat and seafood, and they have an impressive list of vegan/vegetarian options for those of us powered by plants. The beet hummus was delicious! I love how it was prepared with chili sauce on top and can't wait to copy the recipe at home. The bruléed banana foster split served with coconut sorbet was really good too. If you're in the French Quarter, stop by this restaurant, you won't be disappointed!
