TGI Fry-Day Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

I know it's kind of hard to believe, but the little hunks of fried goodness pictured above are vegetables—not chicken, pork, or any other kind of meat. Not that you'll care much. Though it is completely vegetarian, this is still one greedy appetizer. More

The Vegetarian Option: Mana Food Bar

The Vegetarian Option Roger Kamholz 1 comment
